Winter has its moments, doesn't it? Sure, there's a certain sublime beauty to the season. That sharp clarity to the sky winter nights that makes the piercing beauty of the stars that much more keen. A fresh blanket of snow on the ground, giving everything a feel of quiet purity, a tabula rasa on which we can rewrite our lives or begin a fresh new chapter.
But let's be honest: It's a drag. The cold. Hauling in wood all the time or forking out big time for oil. The long, long nights. Driving in snow and ice. And how drab and colorless everything feels after a while.
Fortunately, we're mostly housebound creatures, aren't we? As cool as it would be to be off on adventures in wintry landscapes, we're mostly in our workplaces, vehicles, and homes. These spaces where we live dictate so much of our daily lives.
So making them winter-friendly is important. Making your space sensitive and supportive to your moods is an act of self-care worth investing in right from the beginning of the new year.
