It’s February, my friends. The month that consistently ranks dead last in self reported mood and life satisfaction. But don’t despair. Because, science. There are logical explanations for why we tend to feel out of sorts at this time of year, and there’s a LOT we can do about it, once we understand why.
Every January, without fail, I get a flurry of calls from clients suffering from the cumulative effects of the holiday season (unhealthy diet, overindulgence in alcohol, lack of exercise and disruption of other self-care routines, sleep deprivation, stressful family interactions and financial burdens, etc.), and wanting to hit the reset button.
