Episode #24: 'Tis the Season to be an Ally: MOJO Maker 4 WIT Winter Survival Guide
Play • 30 min

To change things up a bit, this week we won’t be interviewing a guest on the show.

Today, we are sharing some very special things with you, as well as some reflections as we move into the new season. After the year we have had, it is crazy to think that we are already approaching the end of the year - a traditional season of gifting. This year everything has been so incredibly different and it is hard to know, or to anticipate, what is coming. Even though the calendar says one thing, the way it feels, is very different. Today’s episode is a combination of personal perspectives and some practical suggestions. It is inspired by a story about my mom and her struggles with the winter seasons, where it was dim, the light was dim, it was often bone-chillingly cold, damp, and wet and you could go days, or months without seeing the sun. All things that account for the winter blues. Over the years, I developed a few tactics that help me get through them. Today we will be going over some of those strategies in the hopes that they might be helpful for the season that is ahead of us!
