First Day of Winter–Oh Snow–Ho Ho!

Winter is cold and Winter is icy,

The days are dark and the roads are dicey,

Snow can be pretty when it is new,

As it gets older it looks like burnt stew,

As I get older, the cold gets less tempting,

From occasions galore, I find myself exempting,

Okay, I admit my blood is quite thin,

Blame it on age, it isn’t a sin,

Ice and sleet, I really don’t like,

It probably goes back to being a tyke,

Starting today, I’ll stay inside,

I’ll sit by the fire with cocoa and hide.

 

 

 

Winter Can Be Cruel

Cold WinterAs a child, I used to love winter. I would sled and ski and didn’t give the bitter cold a second thought. Now, I am less oblivious and less tolerant of the cold. My body functions and just moves more freely in warmer climates. Cold seems to cause greater constriction of the joints and even the muscles.

Winter doesn’t just bring on change of the physical body but with light changes and shorter days, the changes may impact your mood. Keep a close eye on your daily attitude and if you experience thoughts or feelings that you need to express (sadness, possible depression, or anger) consider getting help and stay on top of it, before it manifests into something you can’t control.
