#SelfCoaching - Are the short days of winter getting you down? If so, you need to read this.
On December 5, 2017
For many, especially those with Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD), the darker days of winter affect their mood, disposition and overall energy negatively. Although we'll be losing about a minute of daylight each day (until December 21st when we begin to gain back a minute each day), see if you can begin to recognize the pendulum-like relativity of life itself. In order to liberate yourself from knee-jerk negativity ("I can't stand it when it gets dark at 4:30!") and fully appreciate life, you need to embrace the duality of our existence. For example, if it weren't for rainy days, sunny days wouldn't seem so special, if it weren't for sickness, we'd be more prone to take our health for granted, and if it weren't for the darkness, the eventual light would not be shine so bright or seem so important. Starting today, embrace the rain, yield to the struggle, and stop fighting the darkness. Begin to recognize the role that opposites play in your appreciation, understanding, enthusiasm, and emotional liberation. Do this and you will never feel victimized by life or by life's circumstances.
