I wrote this this morning to someone inquiring advice about seasonal depression

and I've been feeling I need to return to witnessing my life more
here's a start:

I saw your post this morning and thought I'd chime in my 2-cents:

I don't think travelin to the tropics helps terribly
because the boost you get from the sunlight will wear off in about a week
and make you that much more axious for winter to be over in Your Real Life

I just had it pretty heavy for a month
and knowing is half the battle
when I realized what was going on I decided to shock myself out of the malaise

I made breakfast for a week with marijuana butter
I almost never engage that plant on my own
and it is mostly smoked
but eating it makes the experience slow, gentle and more body integrated

it was great so long as I didn't have to go out be among crowds

my Chinese medicine pals says it releases stuck liver yang chi
(anger, frustration, pushing)
and allows more creativity to flow

I also moved my furniture around
which broke up the stuck energy in my apt and got me moving again

I've been maintaining by doing some yoga/pushups every day

things we're very quiet during my month of SAD
since I actively broke it up
I've had appointsments Every Day
for two weeks now!

but I'm very tired

winter is a good time to Rest
give yourself the chance for sleeping, introspection and recovery:

but if you're feeling everything is a stagnant syrupy mess
move it around and see if it gets your life flowing again

the same magic doesn't work for everybody

but you'll know something that will open the locks
