Just like the bears up here in the Washington forests, we tend to go into a little hibernation mode during the Winter season. We bundle up, cuddle up, choose sedentary activities, and normally feel like we need a nap more often without the vitamin D lighting up our lives as much as the summer. Instead of dreading the gloomy outdoors, why not embrace the weather for that extra bit of rest you may not get through the year?
One plus side to Winter is turning the clock back in the fall and feeling like you've received an extra hour of sleep. However, since the original purpose for the clock change was for farmers to have optimum daylight to do their work, it doesn't do much for you to sleep in if you are sensitive to the light. All the sudden at 6:00am your bedroom becomes brighter and brighter, even though you still have another hour to sleep before you put in a full day's work. So how can you still embrace the winter months in Snohomish County? Try these room darkening window treatments to truly crawl into your cave of hibernation.
