When the January blues hit, see if you can honour your emotions just as they are. See if you can greet them & welcome them in, like an old friend.
Can you allow yourself to see how it feels to be blue? Feel the weight of it & the movement of it. Ask it what it needs from you?
If we can explore any sadness, hopelessness, fear – or whatever emotion we discover – with some curiosity & kindness for ourselves, we might see that it’s ok to be blue. We can let ourselves know that it will not last. We can be present with it, instead of adding resistance & suffering on top. We can open up some room for hope.
