Those upcoming winter blues

Thursday, October 20, 2016

I love fall. I mean, I REALLY love fall. I love the leaves changing colors, the crisp temperature outside, the smells and sights of the season, pumpkins and apple cider, bonfires and hayrides and everything in between.

But, do you know what I don't love about fall....mornings.

The darkness that settles in with the cool air that makes getting up and out the door for a workout so much more challenging. It's like my bed becomes 10,000 times more comfy in the fall and winter months. Like my body knows what hibernation is and what to enjoy about it. I just don't care to understand it!

This morning was a beast to get out of bed and no amount of self-talk was going to be able to remove me from the safe-haven of my blankets and pillows. No matter how much I wanted to go get a run in, go work out, be productive, it was like I was trapped in a blissful marshmallow haven of happiness.

I also think the darkness allows me to convince myself that I am more tired than I really am. Do any of you feel that way? Maybe it's the lack of vitamin B or the limited sunshine, but finding my morning mojo to get my business handled is so challenging!!!

Anyway, I still love fall. I still relish this time of year. I am thrilled to be back in the brisk comfort of my favorite few months but if I could just find the motivation to get over this adjustment hump, I would be a lot happier!


Any advice on how y'all deal with the change in daylight, temps, and seasons??

Peace and love,
