PaganSquare Blog

I've put up a new post at my PaganSquare Blog (run by the lovely folks behind the Witches & Pagans Magazine, where I have a regular column), talking about how becoming a Pagan cured my winter depression.

If you live in a part of the country where the winters are long, cold, and gray, like I do...do you get the blues? If so, how do you cope?

You can find some of my answers at the blog. The other answer, of course, is hot chocolate.

  1. Sometimes. (I live in Cleveland, so it can definitely be “dreary” during the cold months.) Each morning, I try to get up early and catch the sunrise. Drinking my coffee, sitting with my cat, and looking out the window… I take the time to ground and center and to just observe everything. I’m aware how warm we are inside, despite the cold. I watch how the bare tree branches and the snow move in the wind. Basically, I try to go with the flow too – turning inward, having more private prayer/chats with the Goddess, and making preparations for the spring.

    1. That all sounds great! I don't always see the sunrise, but whenever I do, it makes my heart happy. I start most days by having breakfast in the livingroom (which has the best light in the house), reading a book, with a cat or three. Also, there is usually hot chocolate :-)
