So it’s officially the first day of winter, December 21st, 2022 and the rise of the Winter Solstice. Besides crisper weather, today we’ll also be experiencing the shortest day of the year. What else does it mean for us personally though?

Warm UpĀ 

Each Winter Solstice brings an opportunity for individual and team growth. Whether that team is your partner, family members or friends, it’s essential to take this time to hear what the other has to say. Though there may be snow on the ground where you’re from and you are dressing in tons of layers, we can take this as a reminder. Like an onion, we have to peel back the layers of things to get to the center, exactly how you would when opening up.

The Seasonal Cycles

The next step of the plan is to get your goals ready for the New Year! Take some time to reflect on this past year. What made you happy? What would you adjust? How can you make each day a little bit more successful for yourself and those around you? Write it down, make some steps to achieve it and plan to work each day on it. Maybe you want to get back into a healthier morning routine. Or get in the habit of going to bed earlier each night. It doesn’t have to be extreme measures to make your life a little easier. Start small, because those things will help create big plans for 2023 and beyond.
