Tired? Me too.

Anyone else tired?

Me too.

The begin­ning of the colder months, less light, more indoors time. More “back to the grind­stone” kind of working.

I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel heavy. Like I’m about to hibern­ate and it’s not a good feel­ing — not always the cozy feel­ing — but the drown­ing and can’t wake up kind of tiredness.

I know I’m not alone here, and I star­ted think­ing recently more about the idea of feel­ing rested.

How do I know what feel­ing good is when I’m not feel­ing good? And not the feel­ing good — how can I make dif­fer­ent choices to move away from and choices to move towards? I’m not just talk­ing about mov­ing away from cook­ies or towards yoga class. I mean in every part of my life, so that exper­i­ence of “rest” is more every­day, espe­cially in the colder, dark­er months of winter in Canada.

I came up with a little self-scor­ing quiz, and hon­estly, it was illu­min­at­ing to me. I came to real­ize that it’s all of the little things adding togeth­er that make me feel res­ted, and if I can do enough of them reg­u­larly, I’m tip­ping the scale towards those things — body mind and heart.

Score your­self if you’re inter­ested! I’d love to see what you learn.
