THE COZY, HAPPY WINTER eCOURSE...
Slow Down for Winter Comfort
Each winter, many women experience a form of winter blues. And thought, on the surface, it can show up as depression or sadness, or difficulty functioning as well as you do at other times, we’re really talking about grief and loss.
You use the normal way you experience life when it’s not winter. You lose the experience of feeling like you at your very best. And these losses are compounded by the sudden loss of the happiness you experience during the Christmas season.
Decorating for the holidays, getting together with family & sharing experiences that are holiday traditions trigger the brain chemicals that make you feel happy (dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin.) If you also dive into the 24-hour Hallmark Christmas movie season, you are likely to increase those neurotransmitters exponentially.
And then, boom! It’s over. Which makes the winter season even more difficult.
Plus, the loss of Christmas often increases the grief you feel in response to other losses you have experienced.
But … there’s hope!! There are self-care practices that can help you replenish your stores of those brain chemicals that often go missing during the winter. And in my course, stacking the deck with multiple self-care resources will do just that.
And the same self-care rituals will also return you to yourself.
Supporting yourself emotionally with cozy self-care during the winter is key, but if one of the things you lose after the Christmas season is a deep connection and awareness of who you are at the core, and at your best, then that self-care also needs to reconnect you. And this course will show you how.
By leaning into winter’s curve with coziness, self-discovery and emotional self-care, you will not only greatly minimize the loss, but add new practices that feel wonderful and are tailor-made for you.
As you replenish your dwindling supplies of dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin in ways that feel good, you also will remove the resistance you usually feel when winter knocks on the door, and you add heaping tablespoons of cozy fun to sweeten the deal.
Think a cup of tea by the fire, or curling up with a fuzzy throw and a good book.
Then you will end up with a winter that turns your expectations on their side, which helps you let go of the past and eliminates any leftover feelings from previous winters that could put a damper on the new experience of it that you’re going to create.
