INTRODUCTION TO THE NATURAL YEAR
Starting to live your life with the seasons
Do you sometimes feel as if life is racing past you? As if you are running up a down escalator that is picking up speed by the second? Is life an uphill struggle where everything seems an incredible effort? Perhaps you have trouble losing weight; or maybe your energy levels seem to flag lower and lower? Do you ever despair of getting your life on track? Do you beat yourself up because sometimes all you want to do is hide away and tell the world to carry on without you? If you've answered yes to all or any of these questions it's no great surprise. I think most people feel nowadays as if they have to live life on an endless treadmill, permanently racing to go nowhere fast. Society expects so much of us. We are supposed to be cheery, bright, successful super-people - all the time. If we fall ill, or fail or feel depressed, we are branded failures.
