Dealing with the January Scaries
In December I’m always really excited for the fresh start that January brings, and then the year changes and I’m hit with the January scaries. I felt like it was particularly bad this year - even though I knew logically not a lot was going to change overnight, I guess I subconsciously really bought into the new year, new outlook, new me… and then everything was the same except I didn’t have an excuse to eat Christmas cookies every day and night. I’ve been feeling pretty blah, and at first I was like what is wrong with me?! And then I remembered that this happened last year too! So I guess it’s something I can just go ahead and expect at this point. If you’re like me and feel like you’re just now finally pulling out of a weeks long funk, I have a few ideas for getting through it a little better next year.
