This past month my home in seacoast New Hampshire has been slammed with snowstorm after snowstorm. As a teacher and a student, it was hard for me not to stress out about the multiple snow days my university had to take. It threw off my class planning, meetings had to be rescheduled, and there were many days I was stranded inside my house because the roads were impassible. I spent hours and hours worrying that there was no way I could get everything done when Mother Nature kept throwing me curveballs. Eventually, I was able to appreciate the weather for what it was truly offering: an opportunity to relax. I hope whatever area in the world you’re in, whatever the weather, you’re able to find these moments to relax, too! They certainly are important.
