Winter Blues

Gina Velez

During the winter season we often can find ourselves in a funk, feeling hopeless, worthless or irritable. We often lose interest in social activities. Winter Blues are a known as a time for hibernation where becoming withdrawn feels more natural as we fight low energy, oversleep and put on weight. You may find yourself craving carbohydrates,” such as chips, cereal, crackers, and cookies. All clues it’s time to Relax, Read, Exercise or contact a Good Friend. These symptoms generally last until the days start getting longer.

Sad little girl looking out the window.

“Spring, summer, and fall fill us with hope; winter alone reminds us of the human condition.”

Permission to bask in the knowing that Winter is a time of Wisdom; Wisdom has been regarded as one of four cardinal virtues promoting collective and individual greatness!

Much Warmth and Love,

  1. I do like the manner in which you have presented this difficulty plus it really does supply me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of everything that I have experienced, I just simply wish as other comments stack on that people today keep on point and in no way embark on a tirade associated with the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this fantastic piece and although I can not agree with it in totality, I respect the perspective.

      I feel so happy you took the time to read, comment and feedback to me your experiences. I too become exhausted with the tirades; my intention is to shed light, not judge. We all have our own unique individual path. I can tell you it doesn’t have to be winter for me to go grab a bag of chips and binge to the very bottom after a taxing day! When I wrote “Winter Blues” I was knee deep in it and needed to share and express my own human condition. My commitment to my work is to inspire and cultivate curiosity and wonder of what I am doing and how I am showing up to create the results that I am unconsciously committed to; cause they keep showing up and my work if a life-long journey. Hearing from the community is invigorating for me and also shows me what I can learn with you; so Thank you Kirstie for sharing your constitution. Blessings! Gina

  2. I have recently started a website, and the information you offer on this site has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work.

  3. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

      Are you still having issues with the image? It could be the size of the image or the device, but I strive to make my images suitable for all devices; so please let me know if you’re still having issues and maybe we both can learn something! (and it would be helpful if you do still have the image issue loading that I know the WiFi is solid and could not be the issue and the device you’re using) Thanks for dropping in Carie!

  4. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

      Kassie, Thank you for your question. It’s fairly simple to set up a blog what’s challenging is to get it’s following which takes time, patience and knowing which audience you want to create with your Blog. Many people now take advantage of their websites and create a blog page versus doing on a ready-made blogging site. Depending what you are wanting to accomplish I would be happy to make a few recommendations. Here’s a good article from HubSpot on blogging So the decision to make is all you want to do “blogging” so you can set up your long term picture infrastructure today to go the distance. That’s where the technical set-up comes in :>) The good news is once it’s set-up you just have to type, maybe insert some photos if you’d like and hit send!
