Change of seasons: Are you ready to consider starting therapy
The change of the seasons can be symbolic and metaphorical. Leaves turn color and fall, animals shed their skin and prepare for hibernation. It is nature's way of signaling a need to slow down, turn in and retrospect (not sure if that's what animals do though.)
Personally, I love the idea of curling up in a warm blanket and reading a book or watching TV and tuning out the outside world. The transition from summer to a quieter season can feel daunting at first but with the right reframing, it can be an opportunity to recalibrate.
Considering starting therapy can be a wonderful way to guide you through that journey. If that's one thing that we learned during the pandemic was that making time to sit with our feelings and thoughts without distractions can be quite beneficial to knowing ourselves better.
During the colder months, the socializing slows down and you might find yourself feeling more isolated and withdrawn with a lot more time in your hands. Why not use 45 minutes each week to have a space to externalize your thoughts, reframe old habits and develop new ones?!
The significant reduction in sunlight also leads to Seasonal Affective Disorder, something that we all experience from time to time. Therapy can offer a great support in learning new tools to manage your moods and make connections to past experiences and patterns.
