You love spring. Looooooove spring. And yet… you think of winter when lilacs finish blooming.
Summer solstice is lovely, except it also means that the days are getting shorter.
And then… there is that moment, an imperceptible moment in August, when the color of leaves goes from green to dull-green, and you know it’s almost fall, and fall means that winter is coming next.
You hate winter when it’s winter, and dread winter when it’s not winter.
And, to be completely honest, you are fucking tired of it.
Tired of feeling like you are in a long-distance relationship with yourself five months out of the year.
Tired of people asking if you “have tried taking vitamin D”.
You know there are probably changes you can make that would make cold months more tolerable. But that takes energy, and that’s the first thing that goes once the days get chilly.
What you want is information - yes, but in a digestible and implementable way. And you want more than that.
I created Operation Tigger, because:
→ I know that winter can really suck for some of us. You do all the things (light, exercise, supplements), but you still feel disconnected. Connected to other people in the same boat can be oh-so-helpful, but doing so feels like WORK. And you already have little energy.
→ Structure and accountability are two things that really help in the winter months, as we put one foot in front of the other. Yet, many activities, sessions and treatments (think yoga class, massage, or therapy) happen on an one-off basis. You go to a class, and feel better, and you know that you should go again next week, but then next week rolls around, and… you talk yourself out of it. Gahhhh.

Using both natural and artificial light strategically to maximize your energy and improve sleep Shifting your food choices in a way that supports both you AND your body, as the weather gets colder, and you start craving comfort foods
Engaging in physical movement that feels supportive and choosing between moving, exercising and training (and the difference between those)
Making educated choices when it comes to supplements and substances
Identifying your own patterns - whether they take place week to week or season to season
Shifting dysfunctional thinking patterns and reframing
Goal setting and finding things to look forward to (even in the winter months)
Here are all the nitty-gritty details.
Five months of support - no kidding around, we go ALL winter. I’m gonna hold on and not let you go until there are actual signs of spring in the air.
