Today, I woke up fully rested….
It’s amazing to wake up rested because it happens so rarely I forget what it feels like. This morning, I felt great! It was just that…it was 12pm. Only 3,5 hours of day light remaining. I am starting to feel like a big piece of dough being in Sweden. Went outside for a walk and whined that it was so cold. It was only -13, and I felt as if my legs would fall off. I have become such a wimp, living in a city! No, tomorrow I am going to get a pair of leggings (I love the Swedish word: Långkalsong) so I will keep warm. Today, I have also finally found a work-out place that does spinning, body core, body pump etc. I have also got the opening times for the local indoor swimming pool and gym so I think I am all sorted now. No more excuses for that doe feeling.
I am also researching light therapy and body blues since I am in Sweden on the 21st, the shortest day of the year! (with the least daylight). There is a light therapy room in an old persons home that I will try to visit and I might even pay a visit to a tanning bed. Not, so good but seriously, it’s pitch black here! 08:53-15:26 is the shortest day of the year!
