The arrival of 2024 seemed to open this innate calling inside me to disregard the “new year, new you” mumbo jumbo, pause goal and resolution lists, and align with winter.
Ever think about the seasons? Hard to do in the undefined south. Winter is a time to hibernate; soothe your soul; go inward; move slowly with purpose; comfort your body; eat hearty, nourishing foods; get cozy; follow the sun; be still; hunker down; heal and REST.
Imagine if we allowed ourselves to move peacefully with the Earth’s natural rhythm instead of pushing against it to swim upstream before we’re ready.
