Winter is a time of quiet. Nature compels animals to hibernate and sleep. The road less travelled means following Nature's call to rest and rejuvenate. If you are in a place of personal solitude or divided from dear ones by pandemic restrictions, don't embrace FOMO during the Christmas season.
We love the verses of the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, who wrote,
"Stop looking for something out there and begin seeing within. A wealth you cannot imagine flows through you. Do not consider what strangers say. Be secluded in your secret heart-house, that bowl of silence."
Set up deliberate dates, times and locations to relax. Indulge in the delight of rehabilitation, rest, energising food and eye-catching films. Appreciate a stimulating book, care for your body, or engage in creativity. Observe and explore nature. When spring comes, your body and mind will thank you for the soothing and healing you chose.
"Whatever purifies you is the correct road." — Rumi, The Analects of Rumi
