Who says the end of winter has to be gloomy? Treat it as a time of calm before the outdoor pleasures of spring. Conserve your energy with a green tea by the fire, hot allium soup, or a slice of seed cake. Need a boost? Try hugging a hot water bottle, hanging a houseplant or flipping a pancake. Cabin fever? How about puddle jumping or a windswept walk on an empty beach. Reach inside yourself to find kindness in your heart and peace in your mind. If it’s contentment you seek then look no further than The Simple Things.
