I’m tired of looking at that week old post just like you, so I’m throwing in a filler. Maybe S.A.D.1 has come early for me this year. Right now, I would be quite content curling up in a dark cave and taking a long nap.
Of course, my sleep pattern is off. When I go to bed at 10:00 p.m., getting up the next morning is a struggle. When I go to bed after 12, I bounce out of bed at 5 a.m. with no problem. Weird right? I wasn’t always like this and according to my daughter the reason is because I’m from Mars. 2
For me, the onset of Winter is about warmth, cuddling, staying in bed, less light and a decrease in activity. Cramped areas are also very appealing, especially spaces like underneath my desk at work. I can’t do that now, my current employer would be mortified to find me crawling out from under my desk! However, during lunch at my previous job, I would often lounge underneath my desk, with a book or just my dreams, and take a nap.
Okay, maybe I am from Mars, but I saw a co-worker3 do this and decided to try it. I was just cautious enough not to get caught.
Do you have any seasonal behavioral changes you go through or are you much the same all year round?
