I like to keep the energy up in January so we don't get too bogged down in winter doldrums. The boys are better than I am about slowing down and enjoying the indoors. I get antsy to get out, so sometimes we get out of sync with each other. This list is a reminder that there is a way to savor the coziness of indoors as well as shake out the cobwebs from time to time. Since we all need extra motivation in the winter, I added two extras.
