Dreary weather crushes my spark

Monday, December 02, 2019

It has been very cold, wet & windy the past several days & cloudy. I am upping my vitamin D & trying to stay warm but frankly, I just don't handle this well at all. Once the sun disappears I simply lose ambition. It's hard to get out of bed & do anything. I would prefer to snuggle under blankets, watch tv, listen to music, read & eat. Despite getting out into the world everyday - for Thanksgiving dinner, to grocery shop, to watch football, to meet up w/ friends - the thought of doing necessary chores or continuing the packing to move process is daunting. I am tracking my food intake but going over calories a lot of days. I'm tired of hunting thru my house to find what isn't yet packed, or realizing the can opener left out doesn't work, or making decisions because my hubby asked a question. I want to crawl into a den & hibernate for two or three months & come out when it's sunny & I can deal w/ it all then. The cold weather isn't fun but it's the sunshine that energizes me. Until then, my SP tracker may look ugly.

    I, too, am solar powered, but have ADD so can't stay there for more than 5 minutes after I wake. Enjoy your bed. . . this too shall pass.

    HUGS and good luck to you. Do you have seasonal affective disorder? They do have SAD lights that help a lot of people. Hang in there, sweetie.
