verb (used without object), hibernated, hibernating.
1. Zoology. to spend the winter in close quarters in a dormant condition, as bears and certain other animals. 2. to withdraw or be in seclusion; retire. 3. to winter in a place with a milder climate:We all hibernate for different reasons. Some people hide out because they are introverted or depressed... others might retreat from the world because of illness or physical limitations. However, most of us do hibernate to some extent in winter. The cold and the darkness make it hard to find the motivation to go out. This winter in Sydney has been very cold. Too cold for me. I have fully withdrawn myself and will not be leaving the house until the temperature once again raises above 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). My excuse is medical but even if you don't have a solid excuse, it is ok to hide out sometimes... just for a little while. There can be a lot of reflection and repair in some time alone. Just don't do it for too long and drop out of circulation entirely :) [su_button url="http://cectimm.com/what-i-learnt-this-week/" background="#fc1581" size="5" icon="icon: plus-circle"]See ALL #WhatILearntThisWeek[/su_button] [su_button url="/blog/what-i-learnt-this-week-week-28/" background="#fc1581" size="5" icon="icon: arrow-circle-right"]See the NEXT #WhatILearntThisWeek[/su_button]
#MyMammaSaidLisa's mother was very concerned for her health (every good mother worries). We've all been well trained in public toilet use but I don't think my training was this specific. Better start doing some deep lunges to allow for sustainable squatting LOL :P I recently asked a bunch of people to share with me a piece of advice their mother had given them. Some are wise, others are hilarious but most of all, they are all true. While the words in these illustrations are direct quotes, the characters are inspired by each advice recipient and are not meant to be an exact likeness. I am only using their first name so they can stay anonymous, if they choose. Feel free to share on social media (please link back to my site). It would be awesome if you could send me your mothers best words of wisdom... it might just help someone else out :) What did your mamma say? Get in touch via Twitter, Instagram or by email :)
We often think we know enough about a topic. You may know the headlines but do you really know everything? No you don’t. You could learn something new, get some insight into a philosophy or gain an understanding of something you’ve never allowed yourself to consider before. So try to open your mind, close your mouth and listen… you never know what you might learn.[su_button url="http://cectimm.com/what-i-learnt-this-week/" background="#fc1581" size="5" icon="icon: plus-circle"]See ALL #WhatILearntThisWeek[/su_button] [su_button url="/blog/what-i-learnt-this-week-week-25/" background="#fc1581" size="5" icon="icon: arrow-circle-right"]See the NEXT #WhatILearntThisWeek[/su_button]
