How to explain the concept of living with nature.

At this time of year, mid December, it is almost Winter officially. The animals are quiet, there are not many birds outside and the ponds are starting to freeze over, nature is quiet and still. Humans are part of nature but we are a bit nutty at this time of year. It is a time of over indulging - over eating, over spending, over partying. If you love this buzz at this time of the year, that's wonderful. However, if you get a bout of the winter blues around this time of the year, they don't be hard on yourself and think you are the baa hum bug guy. Instead be proud of yourself for having the awareness that we are not aligned with the way of nature at this time of the year.
