“Winter is a season of recovery and Preparation” –Paul Theroux

Hey Guys and Dolls,
It is official. Winter is here!
All through December, I kept waiting for that drastic drop in temperature that prompts everyone to reach for multiple layers of clothing that starts with thermals and ends with knitwear. Lo and behold, it never came.
Despite the freak winter situation we are currently experiencing, I have noticed that January kicked off with a slight drop in temperature. I have started reaching for my gloves everyday for the past week, which got me excited once again. Winter is here!!

As the quote states, winter is a season of recovery and preparation in regards to so many things. For example, it could be recovery from that extra weight you put on over Christmas and preparation for the summer body you want by hitting the gym. It could be financial recovery from hitting your bank account too hard and preparation for a holiday by putting a little something aside for the next 6-8 months or it could be recovery from all those resolutions you didn’t meet last year and preparations for the ones you set a couple of weeks ago. Whatever you’re recovering from and preparing for, GO GET IT!
