Winter Begins Soon


Today is the beginning of the darkest two weeks of the year. The winter solstice is December 20th and 21st, and during the week before and after those dates those of us in the northern hemisphere will be getting the least amount of sunlight than at any other time during the calendar year.

I'm already feeling it. Getting up for work in the dark, coming home from work in the dark, spending most of the day either indoors or in the dark...it's definitely a good idea to guard against the seasonal depression and natural urge to hibernate for 14 hours a day. Keep to a schedule, seek the company of good friends and good beer, exercise whenever possible, and know that soon the days will be getting longer.
