As we move through another week of quarantine in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus, I’m definitely feeling the effects of being house-bound and out of physical contact with my extended family and friends. While I’m coming to accept this new normal, I’m also experiencing a pretty consistent level of anxiety (anyone else having a hard time sleeping?).
It’s officially spring in the Northern Hemisphere, the time of year when we begin to enjoy more daylight than dark. It’s also a time when the world, literally, comes into balance.
Yes, we’re still experiencing quite a bit of rain (or snow in some places), but temperatures are rising, bright blue sky is peeking through and new life is springing up all around us. Spring encourages us to slow down, breathe deeply, listen to the sounds of life, savor the sunshine on our skin, and notice the new blooms and sprouts of the season.
