Polar Night Crash Course: Lesson three

Lesson three: slow down.

It's impossible not to notice the changes the Polar Night does to your body. The pace is different, there's no way you can rush. So you better slow down and be kind to yourself. I guess life is easier when you accept the things you cannot change. Like that it's dark no matter what.

Make a cup of tea. Watch American Pickers, my latest obsession.

This is just not the time to start new projects (ask me what I'm doing in the end of May - I'm turning the house upside down).

Do not act crazy and clean the windows for Christmas. Light a candle and no one can tell.

On the down side I have a baby who has trouble knowing if it's day or night. I try to tell her she should be sleeping in the evenings.

Have a good weekend, friends!

Found your bllog whilst browsing others....such interesting reading. Specially how the polar nights can affect and effect your lifestyle if you let it.
I with hubby am going on a Hurtigruten trip in February 2012, in search of the northern lights heres hoping. I will add you to my side bar, really enjoyed your postings.

Slow down?!!! What a revolutionary idea. I always remember a friend commenting at this time of year that the reason we were so tired is that we're actually supposed to be hibernating. I'm not sure that's true, but I like the theory! Good luck getting your little one on a sleeping schedule.

My baby seems to think night time is the best time to eat. Happy Holidays!

Thanks for another word from the polar-wise. I have also found that to be true here in an especially frigid region of the 45th parallel. The extreme cold, ice, snow, blizzards require us to adjust and clear our schedules for the weather as much as possible. I hate it! LOL
