Have the end of winter blues? I find that the last few weeks of winter can be the hardest to thrive in. One of my Milwaukee friends seems to handle this season better than most people I know. Laurel is always going on some type of outdoor adventure and has a great attitude about winter. I asked her to do a post, and she put together this list of four tips for surviving winter -- hope this brings you a bit of joy on this cold day. And I hope you enjoy her amazing Wisconsin winter photos. Those ice caves are breathtaking!!
For me, finding joy in all things means living in a state of openness to the world, it means welcoming in the many small beauties and absurdities of life. This state of permeability is seriously compromised by the long winter months, when everything seems to shut down. I've spent years trying to work out the perfect way to survive a midwestern winter with a sound mind, and here is what I've come up with.
Spring is right around the corner but until it officially arrives, follow Laurel's advice and treat yourself to a hot toddy and get yourself moving! Thanks for sharing your tips Laurel!
