This time of year can be tricky for some, depending on where you call home. The cold and dark have a funny way of dragging on our spirits, making us feel heavy and inclined to hibernate. It is imperative that you shake off winter lethargy and prepare for the season to come. Do not let your sleepy mind convince you that now is the time to slow to a pause. Read on for a few opportunities to keep your wheels turning while the world is covered in ice and snow.
