Uninspired, bored, unmotivated ~ find yourself counting down the hours until you can hop into bed and pick back up where you left off binge watching another (let’s face it) pretty sub-par series?
To be honest, winter’s sapping the soul out of us ~ and has us googling such oddities as ‘why do I crave mashed potato in Winter?’ and “why do I sleep 9 hours and still find it hard getting up in the dark?”
The creative juices have just frozen dead cold in the arteries ~ nothing is flowing and we’re generally just feeling a bit sluggish and blagh.
So we wanted to celebrate the seasonal slump, we can’t do anything about it but offer you a chilly hand in solidarity, and a few suggestions to help pass the time until the Halcyon days of Summer are back upon us.
Something a little less Negative Nancy ~
To feast your eyes and ears on…
Things to Watch
We are all going to die
Our favourite feel good message.
Brain child of the hilarious Stefan Hunt, it all began after he developed that common condition we call anxiety. He questioned everything your average twenty-something questions - relationships, careers, tax returns, the meaning of Instagram and the meaning of life.
Coming to the realisation that the only real guarantee in life “is that we’re all going to die one day”
This movement is about kicking fear in the ass, an amusement park for the soul, reminding us to never take life too seriously.
So why not choose why not?, and embrace the uncertainty? Because even if you fail it all, there’s still only one guarantee*
Brene Brown (everything)
