Past the shortest day of the year

For me, the shortest day of the year is depressing. This, in spite of the fact that Christmas is approaching. It seems that there is something wrong with daybreak coming at 7:30 AM and dusk at 5:15 PM. There is enough time for a full day’s work, but not enough daylight for anything else. No walks in the park or yard work.

I know that I need an attitude adjustment. I have been looking for a strategy the last number of years. If I could be happy and well-adjusted during the season of short days, it would make that period of the year more productive.

For now, I guess I will use the morning time from 6:00 AM to 7:30 AM to do things that are best done in a quiet and pensive environment. The evenings from 5:30 PM until 11:00 PM can be for working and learning without the distractions of going outside. Hey, maybe I DO have a strategy.
