Two ways to embrace seasonal change.

These colors.

Yellow, green, violet, blue.

February is over and March is here. Season that everybody wants just to finish cause they’re waiting for warmer days to come. Away with warm clothes, we want shorts!

What if I tell you it’s a waste of time and energy. No matter how you want to speed up the process it won’t happen. Nature is wise and knows no rush.


One way of embracing the seasonal change is to learn from nature – without learning. Observe without forcing anything. Being – with all it’s consequences. Alan Watts in his book “Nature, Man and Woman” says: “The more a person knows of himself, the more he will hesitate to define his nature and to assert what he must necessarily feel, and the more he will be astounded at his capacity to feel in unsuspected and unpredictable ways.” Why not embrace unknown than and surrender?

Last olives being picked up and last snow is slowly melting in the top parts of mountains. The two elder man laugh at loud, they tell jokes and talk about the weather while continuously picking small round olives, one by one with they tired but happy hands.

Another way of accepting the seasonal change is to find you own unique way to step into this energy. In a practical way: finding a positive mantra, signing up for yoga or gym class,  eating more seasonal fruits and veggies (this could be challenging sometimes depending on the climate zone you live in, but then you might want to try fermentation or preserving food methods), try essential oils therapy and most of all go outside no matter the weather especially when daylight is available!
