Winter Time: Does Your Performances Drop During the Winter?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I noticed a common pattern, during the winter time I also a dip in performances in energy,depression,mood,apathy,and other things.

 

Even my father mentions to me how he gets tired or generally lazier during the winter.

 

I was wondering if this was considered "normal", maybe other people,too, felt this way.

 

It would make sense because winter time is generally a time to CONSERVE ENERGY as opposed to go all out...

 

One example of this in animals are bears.

 

Bears generally "hibernate" during the winter. Personally, I think bears evolved to have this tactic or strategy to hibernate during the winter for efficiency sake. That or they were programmed with this information.

 

Bears know to cut back during the winter possibly because they know there is a lot of diminishing returns. Meaning winter is a horrible time to be busy because they would spend more energy then they gain back. So, in a way, it's "smart laziness."

 

I wonder if this is the case for us humans, also.

 

Do you notice more depression,lack of energy,laziness,sluggish feeling, or anything else during the winter?

I feel it's more the shift in seasons. I was extremely passive in the first three weeks of September. The body took some time to readjust to end of summer time to cold drabby winter, I'd imagine. 

 

However, after that I started making progress again. 

 

From every famous Youtube persona I've subscribed to, though, there's generally something along the lines of -

 

"We go through periods of expansion and contraction."

 

I think it's necessary to be aware of what you're feeling inside and if you're burning out. That being said you can't totally take time off. All you can do is strategically slow down, think back to how your progress has been and what you could do differently for some time (or hell even watch a movie or something. Most of us forget to like, enjoy our journey), and then get back into it. 

 

Do the best you can, and don't let external factors get into your head. At the end of the day, the most successful ones have hustled daily. Through sicknesses, bad weather, what not.

The winter is usually always associated with drabness, lack of energy and depression because of the lack of sun your getting compared to the summer and spring ... it's cold and gloomy so being fun and festive is less likely ... I feel those beliefs that you have about winter are pre-programmed, probably since you were a child, I used to believe the same thing, but now I look forward to winter and the slowed down pace.

Hmmm,maybe you are right...
