Depending where you are in the world, the change of season can be a little hard to handle. In Montreal, we are starting to see shorter days with the sun going down before dinner is on the table. And while it doesn’t bother some people, the majority start to drag their feet and complain about the weather.
I must admit, I usually lean to the side of “not happy” with the weather change. Some fall days are glorious! The sun is shining, the leaves are a rainbow of autumn tones, and going outside is pleasure. Other times, it’s windy and rainy, and the longer that type of weather lasts, the worse my mood becomes.
So, imagine, if you will, how children must feel?
Children are innately resilient, so they have that going for them, but a change from all-day outside weather in the summer to closed-in school days and dark afternoons can be downright gloomy on the psyche, old or young.
I recently wrote about how to help children with this change in season over at Omaiki.com with a piece entitled Three Simple Back-to-School Changes. They are simple acts to help children along with their emotions as they are now settled into a school schedule. Click on the title to read the full piece.
How do you handle the change in season? Do you even have a change of season where you are? I sometimes think my mind would do better in a sunny-all-year location. What about you?
