As we once again adjust our clocks in a ritual dance with daylight saving time, we’re reminded that change is one of life’s constants. While the days may be getting shorter, it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace the coziness of the season. It’s a time for lighting candles, wrapping up in our favorite blankets, and finding joy in the quiet moments of nesting. But as we settle into this season of introspection, I’m curious about how you navigate the darker days. Join the conversation on the What She Said Talk Facebook page and share your best tips for thriving during this time.
