If Bears Can Do It…

It's getting cold. Wintery. I wore a jacket today.

I've noticed that these last few days I've begun to feel a bit more sluggish than usual. More likely to just feel like curling up and taking a nap, it doesn't even bother me as much now that I'm completely alone with no one to curl up with. I just wanna hibernate. This morning, for a brief amount of time, I felt really motivated. I managed to do enough work that I can now just sit and do almost nothing for the rest of the day. Like a bear eating and preparing before the long nap.

I'm also very easily distracted. Much more so than usual. One of the fluorescent bulbs in my office is going out. There's an occasional annoying flicker, but right now it's doing some neat "plasma spiral" thing.. it's like one of those rotating barber shop poles, but with light. It's pretty trippy.

Anyway.. cold = hibernation. Is this a measured human phenomenon? I know we don't have anything as drastic as those wonderful sleepy bears, but do we get less active when the weather starts acting like my freezer? Or am I just looking for an excuse for my laziness?

    I actually feel more motivated when it's nice and crisp outside. The summer makes me sweaty and tired. It's funny how weather has different effects on people.

    winter makes me want to hibernate too. the cold, the snow, the dark gloomy days…that just makes me want to stay home in bed, curled with my kitty cats and a hot drink and a good book. or just to sleep more. i believe in winter hibernation. if the bears do it, i think we should follow their example…it would certainly make me happier come spring when the weather gets nicer and warmer and the days longer 😛
