We shouldn't have to work in winter. In the middle of summer and the middle of winter should just be quiet and peaceful times of year in continental places.
Let me bask in nature and recharge. Let me run through the ponds and streams again under dappled sunlight. Let travel up the river in my wooden canoe. Let me swim in the day and picnic in the shade. Let me build snow forts and drink hot tea in the sun. Let me slide down the hills overlooking our homes. Let me glide on the ice until it feels like I'm flying. You can join in, I promise it's so fun.
We aren't meant to be running around and stressing at these times, it feels unnatural.
We need more free time.
Life needs to slow down.
