Ok, I know technically winter is not here for 17 more days. But remember as a child most of us did not wait for a specific calendar date to tell us it was winter? Personally the first snowfall meant it was winter and time to build snowman, have a snowball fight, and make snow angels.
So, I have a challenge for anyone that possibly can to let your inner child out to have fun. Make a snowman and/or have a snowball fight with your neighborhood children of all ages (just make sure there are no stones or ice in your snowballs) . Definitely get down in the snow and make a snow angel. I was told by psychologist, who also helps me with pain management, that making a snow angel can help relieve joint and soft tissue inflammation. The fantastic side effect of all of these things is they helps us relieve stress and other negativity.
Another challenge, remember cutting out snowflakes from paper or making garland from strips of construction paper? Baking cookies by yourself or with your children/grandchildren,coloring, painting or anything else that reminds you things you did before becoming a grown up with all kinds of responsibilities.
Email Lady Beltane at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short video or pictures showing how you let your inner child out to play and be creative for whatever season we are in, in the hemisphere you live in. Your faces will be covered over if you do not want it seen. Please include a short description of what your activity means to you. Lady Beltane is going to start a seasonal page that will include your pictures or short 60 second video of you my dear Sisters, Brothers, and Honored Guests doing something that brings you and your inner child joy and happiness. Lady Beltane will start it off with something today.
