Feeding The Soul
January is one of the most challenging months of the year. It’s always so hard after the holidays to find something to look forward to. It’s when a lot of people choose to go on vacation or redecorate their homes because they’re trying to find ways to fill the void. I recently read a book about coping mechanisms for Winter, and the author said the best strategy for dealing with Winter is just to embrace it. Whether that means getting outside and participating in Winter activities, or hibernating at home with candles and hot chocolate, January is the time for feeding the soul.
One of the best ways to feed the soul is by simply having some alone time to think, plan, and dream. What better time than January for a little self-reflection? Just like nature needs a chance to slow down and rejuvenate every Winter, so do our souls. Pablo Picasso once said that “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.” As you go through January, I hope you’ll find a little time to slow down, reflect, and feed your own soul.
Creating Home offers a few helpful resources to help fill the void after the holidays. Homemaker’s Guide – Bringing Winter To Your Home shares ten ways to decorate your home for Winter after the holiday decorations have come down. Finally, the January issue of Wilma Magazine just came out on the first and has lots of helpful and interesting articles on ways to embrace January.

Have a great day!
