It is a good reminder that while paying attention to self-care, which includes not avoiding people in your life.
It is normal to not talk to all your friends and family on a regular basis, as people live busy and chaotic lives. But when the season changes and you are working on improving your happiness through self-care, it should be a good reminder to think of someone you haven’t spoken to in a while.
Stay Connected as Much as Possible
It is also important that you not stay isolated during this season. This may be the easy way to go when you get busy, nights get shorter, it is cold longer, and there aren’t as many opportunities to see people… But don’t isolate yourself too much. Instead, you should create your own opportunities, reach out to people, and stay connected as much as possible. Everyone around you is going to be much happier!
