I’ve been having a harder and harder time getting up in the morning. Every year as the summer winds down I dread the coming wet, grey months. Here in BC it’s been so beautiful this fall and we’ve had this amazing extended summer. I’ve been so thankful and yet……the mornings are getting darker and I’ve been feeling draggier and draggier.
I’m upping my Vitamin D and sitting in front of my happy light, but I still feel……..well, it’s not that I feel sad or even depressed, but I just feel like I have 1,000 lb weights attached to me.
I feel so different in the summer. I feel so ALIVE! Even if I’m tired…..I can bounce out of bed (Maybe wobble is a more accurate term), but now…….
I don’t want to get up. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to do what I know I have to, and that SUCKS!
Do you struggle with the long, dreary days of fall/winter/spring? I think that the length of our “grey” season must have something to do with it. What do you do to fight off the darkness? I’d love to hear your suggestions…..or even just to know that I’m not alone in this…..
