December Mood

December has arrived, and winter is just around the corner. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about it. While I appreciate the introspective and contemplative energy of the season, I could do without the cold and gloominess.

My winter-loving friend has been suggesting various practices and activities for the season, and I've been learning to embrace the darkness through this process. I started making a list of things that bring me joy and comfort, even when it's challenging to cultivate them—a sort of winter survival list.

This same process could serve as a welcome pause during the busy rush of the season. It's a moment to reflect on your well-being, needs, and practices. What does a nourishing season look like for you? And what small acts of kindness can you prepare for your best winter self?

From bringing out your coziest bedding and establishing new bedtimes, to hosting smaller gatherings, indulging in restorative oils, and journaling through the end of the year—there are sure to be some ideas for you to start planning and preparing for winter.
