We all need rest and relaxation! And yet, we live in a world that does not prioritize rest, and it’s viewed as weakness. Enter Katherine May! In her book, “Wintering,” she uses winter as a metaphor to help us lean into our difficult times with grace, love and support. We use the winter every season to care for ourselves, and her book helps us see the winters we all have throughout our lives.
