Annaliese Griffin, writing in Quartzy, extols the virtues of getting back into a routine post-holidays.
Sure, January is cold, and dark. You have to start thinking about doing your taxes, everyone on social media is bragging about how great it feels to drink only green juice, and there’s a vague pressure to come up with some kind of grand project of self-improvement. It’s also a fantastic month to embrace quiet nights and early bedtimes, to snuggle comfortably into the waiting arms of your old friend, routine.
I agree. The seven weeks from Thanksgiving to New Year’s is exhausting and stressful. I’m slowly getting back into my normal routine.
