Are you exhausted? Maybe here’s why, Dear One…
For the hundreds of thousands of years of human existence — as hunter gatherers or agrarian peoples — this time of less daylight during the winter brought rest. Before electricity made it possible to ignore the yearly cycles of light and darkness, it’s likely that our ancestors spent much more of the winter asleep. Ah ha!
But we have a multitude of flashy distractions to help us deny or ignore our own evolutionary need for quiet and rest. Human evolution can’t possibly have caught up with the speed of our modern technological advances.
With all that light, we can’t help but be drawn outward toward all that must be done. We indulge our fascination with the endless possibilities for work and play, always occupied, always busy doing, doing, doing.
I invite you to join me for this 4 minute renewal to help bring you back to just BEING this winter.
