Winter weather blues–or seasons of good?

It’s that time of year again. As the northern hemisphere moves deeper into winter, media chatter reminds us of impending colder weather, shorter days, and bare landscape. Then there’s a host of illnesses sold to us through advertisements and even brought up in conversations with well-meaning friends. Often, it’s even accepted that we’ll catch the “winter blues,” in the form of lethargy and depression. Essentially, we’re encouraged to believe that comfort and well-being are transitory, ephemeral, and dependent on the time of year.

Is there anything we can do, besides hole up and look forward to spring? Yes: Christian Science offers each of us unchangeable, spiritually based comfort and well-being that rebuffs the suggestion that winter weather can take away our health or happiness.
