Winter you're killing me

Winter time just about kills me.  I get stressed, tired, unmotivated, fat, and with my autoimmunity I have weird symptoms such as my fingernails stop growing and fall off my right hand.  So yeah, I could pretty much do without winter time.  The holidays do not illicit joy for me.  They are just stressful!  The definition of holiday is: 

  1. 1.
    a day of festivity or recreation when no work is done.
    Um HELLLLLLOOOOOOOO!  Do you see above?  Who does no work on a holiday?  Maybe instead of buying a bunch of useless shit for Christmas lets do NOTHING for one whole day and feel no guilt about it?  Just my proposal.
    Ok, one winter problem solved.  let's move on to the second.
    It's cold and cold hurts.  Yes, of course I can keep putting on clothes until I look like the Pilsbury dough boy(which I kinda almost do without clothes thanks to that devil called sugar but this is the next problem, so wait for it.)  But you see I am adverse to wearing a lot of clothes, they are restrictive and I have some issues with that.  Deeper than just the clothes but we aren't having a counseling session right now so we won't go there.  Worse than that is the fingernail thing.  I have a suspicion that it has to do with lack of sunlight even though all the 20 or so doctors I have seen have no idea what the fuck it is.  So my plan is to move south.  
    There, another problem solved.  Next.
    Sugar.  Cookies, cakes, pies, donuts, candy.  Shit.  It is everywhere.  It's like at night when we go to sleep all the desserts start humping and making new desserts.  They multiply worse than rabbits.  For some reason though I won't eat a rabbit.  In they're sweet fluffily cuteness, how could you eat them?  Little off subject, back to desserts.  I'm not really sure what to do about this one.  Let me go eat a chocolate chip cookie and think about it....
    I think the bears get it right.  Winter is about hibernating.  Eating meat and root veggies, stews, roasts and pies, sleeping and relaxing. We have to understand our systems and rhythms to feel good and stay in tune.  There is so much distraction in our lives away from what matters, being with friends and family, helping those in need and just spreading love.  Slow down, stop putting so much pressure on yourselves for one day out of the year.
