- My mind is not as sharp.
- I am reduced to writing in bullet points.
- My emotions are not as stable.
- I make the scary discovery that the state of my mind really does influence how well I land planes on Flight Control HD on the iPad.
- I decide that putting my fate into the hands of an air traffic controller who has been running less, eating comfy foods, not getting enough fresh air and sunshine, and feeling a bit out of it may not be such a great idea.
But there’s hope.
- The days are getting longer.
- They’re also getting warmer.

- History indicates I do this every year and always spring back.
How are you surviving the winter?
