Make the Switch

Holidays, winter, cold weather, stress … all of these may be leading you to feel like you have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).  To some extent many of us may suffer from some level of SAD, some more than others, including those who have lived in cold weather states all of their lives.  Do we always try to find an excuse to complain? Do we like feeling sorry for ourselves?

We all know one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Does this sound familiar? I have lived in Nebraska for nearly 20 years and I have complained about winter for almost as long! I did not like the cold weather, I did not like the snow, I love to do a lot of things that DO NOT involve cold weather but do involve sun and heat. As a family, we have talked about moving to a warmer state.  But trust me, once you marry a Nebraskan, you are stuck in Nebraska for the rest of your life! 

This winter we decided to make the switch and no longer complain about the inevitable, but to do something about it.  We have taken up skiing!  We have purchased season passes and we spend every weekend on the slopes, here, locally. We’ve discovered that all of a sudden we embrace the snow and do not mind the cold weather.  And what is even more wonderful is that we not only spend a lot of time together as a family, but we truly discovered something that keeps us active and healthy and that we fully enjoy!

Have you made the switch? Is it your career, your routine, the complaining? What are you going to do about it? Remember, unless you make the switch and quit doing the same thing over and over again, you will never get different results!

2014 is your year! Do it!
