The winter sun is a beautiful, yet often overlooked, phenomenon.
It brings us that much needed warmth during the coldest months of the year and reminds us of the joys of the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
Being able to enjoy the sunshine in winter can have such a calming and restorative effect on us, in much the same way that warm summer days do. Mentally, the sunshine helps to re-energize us and inspires us to get moving and outdoors again.
