Winter is such a depressing time of year for me. I’m not into skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, etc. I detest being cold, which is somewhat unfortunate as I live in Upstate New York. But what I’ve noticed is that some part of me stops living when it’s cold. All of my goals, ambitions, grand ideas seem to wait until spring has sprung. My motivation hibernates all winter long. And honestly, I’m over it. I’m proud of the work I’ve done on my sobriety thus far, but I’ve let everything else slide, and I’m feeling the effects of it, mentally and physically.
Although this is my sobriety blog, I want to rebrand it as my wellness blog. I want to bring my focus back to eating and cooking healthy meals, moving my body, finding time to meditate and pray, connecting in a positive way with my husband and son, and working on being the best version of myself that I can be. Simply being sober isn’t enough.
Today’s focus: putting down the electronics and truly being present with my husband and son.
