With the shorter days upon us, it’s important to remember that it is natural for us as creatures of the earth to instinctively want to turn inward, retreat from the world, hibernate. This is just part of our natural cycles as beings of this tilted, spinning world. So embrace self-care. Make your surroundings cozy, warm. Engage in deep listening. Do things that nourish you and feed your creativity. Take time to listen to the quiet.
But just as important is to make an effort to reach out to friends. Even just to check-in and let them know you’re thinking of them. You never know who might need some help, who might benefit from the simple act of someone reaching out.
