Have you decided on your winter strategy yet?

Processed with Snapseed.

Winter strategy? What on earth is she talking about, you may think. But I have a point, I promise.

The other day I was walking, and as I looked down, I saw what I’ve pictured above. And then it hit me. WINTER IS COMING!

As if this recurring event somehow snuck up on me without a warning and took me completely by surprise. Of course I know, that winter is coming – it’s only natural. But I’ve been so busy lately, that I’ve almost forgotten to notice, that summer is indeed over and soon, we’re facing scarves and winter coats. And that’s when I realised, that I hadn’t yet planned my strategy for the winter.

Over the past couple of years I’ve noticed, that I get highly affected by the weather and the lack of sunlight during winter. If I just let things take its course I can very easily end up very depressed until the sun comes out again – not a very desirable place to be.

If I on the other hand am conscious about the effects, I can create a strategy to not end up in winter depression mode. So to me, having a strategy is crucial. Here’s what I’ll try to do this year.

I WILL

  1. Refuse to let the weather define my mood. I will declare that to myself every time I feel the effect of the rain in a negative way. (I know it sounds powerless, but I have experienced how powerful it is to even just tell myself, that I will not let it affect me.)
  2. Make sure to spend time outside every day and get as much of the natural sunlight as I can.
  3. Stay active and go on runs or to the gym (this will be  hard one for sure!)
  4. Eat my vitamin C and D (C for the immune system and D for the lack of sunlight)
  5. Try my best to look for the small joys and see the beauty even in a gloomy day.
  6. Prioritise time with the people I love
  7. Prioritise time with God!

I don’t know about where you live, but here… it’s cold! I’ve bundled up with candles, movies and hot drinks for a while now, and I thought it would be time to share one with you.

A few weeks ago I was introduced to this amazing tea from “T”. It’s an organic Chinese tea from Yunnam (don’t ask me where in China that is, but it sounds exotic). First of all I have to comment on the amazing design. Just look at it! Seriously, this package just makes me happy. Anyways, it comes in many different flavors – I got two of them, but have only had the chance to try the green one. And it’s delicious. Shimmering Silk Green Tea is the name. It has an incredibly subtle taste to it and is easily enjoyed. Apart from the loose tea, the line also has tea bags, tea flowers that open up when you put it in the hot water and tea cakes that you break the tea off of. I love how tea brewing is made more fun and exciting that way.

The tea is produced by locals as part of a ministry that helps the poor make a living and support themselves. That is the sole purpose of this tea, and knowing the lady behind the project, I can assure you that it is a great way to help China’s poorer parts prosper. So, this Christmas get your hands on this tea and enjoy it knowing that you also helped someone else. Could it get any better?

Get it Magasin in Copenhagen from 65 DKK.
