FOUNDER + ACCESSIBLE WEBSITE STRATEGIST AT BUOYANT
I can hardly believe it is nearing the end of October already. I got a Freeze Warning notification on my phone. One thing I can tell you is that despite being born and raised in Wisconsin, I am absolutely not ready for winter.
Winter is one of those times in which everything turns a dull gray. The grass dies, the leaves fall and the low-hanging clouds move in. The birds and butterflies migrate south with our neighbors. Everyone else bundles up and hibernates inside for the long season between Halloween and Easter. To me, it’s a dreaded five months out of the year and I have never acclimated well.
If you’re anything like me, your body aches more than usual, you gain unnecessary weight, you move your body less, and your mental health suffers. Worst of all, your ambition takes a spiraling nosedive into an icy pond and you can only hope there is a parachute to slow the fall before you burst into flames. I jest, kind of.
Okay, so I am thirty now and have survived three decades of Midwestern winters without actually dying a dramatic death. Even more so, I have managed to survive several years with a nagging chronic illness and keep my business afloat. So while I am not exactly “thriving” in the buoyant sense, I am ah-ah-ah-ah stayin’ alive.
HERE ARE SOME OF MY TIPS FOR SURVIVING A DREADED WINTER:
Most importantly, if you EVER feel like you have been affected by the winter blues for more than just a few days, call your primary care provider’s office to schedule a time to chat. Of course, I am here as a friend to provide a listening ear, but I am not a trained medical professional and want to make sure you are taking the absolute best care of your mind and body.
