Something New.

Settling in on the first day of Hibernate, 2016.

Since January 11, I've been participating in a self-paced four week online workshop entitled "Hibernate" given by Heather Bruggeman of the wonderful blog Beauty That Moves

Winter is my favorite season (next to Autumn) and I looked forward to exploring this season in ways I hadn't thought of before, not only to refresh things for myself, but to learn to find the joy in this season even when it's not as I would normally enjoy it (for example weather wise, when it is a warm winter without snow). I was also hoping that maybe doing something new would give my creativity a much needed kick in the rear! 

In short, for me the workshop has focused on self, creativity, home, nourishment (on several levels), and community (via Instagram and a closed group on facebook). It has taken me out of my comfort zones, but for once, I am glad vs resistant or upset! 

Though this is the last week of the workshop, I will be going back to the binder where I have collected all of the downloadables from each day's topic as time allows throughout the rest of Winter to complete all of the exercises I have connected with, and I can't wait to see the rest of the results.

I look forward to seeing what else Heather has in store for readers in the future as well!

Have you tried something new this Winter? Share below!

I can't believe it's the last week! I haven't even posted anything on instagram or in Facebook. I have enjoyed reading the ebooks and (illness aside ) I have had a quiet and hygge winter so far.
