The traditional expressions of winter tend to come to mind when that season is mentioned or discussed and include weather such as snow and ice, rain and sleet, and unending grey skies. Although the first, and maybe second, snowfall can bring excitement and desire to play explore what appears to be a new, clean world, that feeling soon wears off, except for the skiing and other snow sports population, and we find it can be a real impediment to ‘normal’ daily living. The much higher proportion of rain, sleet, any form of precipitation and its companions gives us the feeling that everything, inside and out, is damp and just begging for mold to appear. But the worst form of winter weather is the unending grey sky that can go on and on for what seems to be forever, saps our vitality, and takes the joie de vivre right out of us. Then when the clouds are dispersed and the sun comes out in all its brightness, reveals colors again, and even warms us, if only on one side, we throw off our dismal moods and instantly find it easier to be positive and to make plans and follow through on them. Since we know the monotonous, dull weather will return and keep on returning until Spring it is wise to store up our memories of the good, Vitamin D filled days and return to them when we are most discouraged. Isn’t it better to have some good memories to help with Winter blues than to plod along, discouraged?
