Or, add alternative lighting such as well-placed task lights so that the fluorescents are rarely used.
Expand your repertoire of seasonal decorations to include photographs of or tokens from loved ones. Celebrate your relationship with the people you care about and draw them close throughout the winter, as they symbolize the emotional Fire of human bonds that warm your home with cherished memories.
Winter is the time to create spaces that encourage personal renewal and social intimacy — a time to get to know yourself and others better. This is the season to light the candles, cozy up around the fire, sip something delicious from a steaming mug, and share stories with your favorite people. Keep the home fires burning and enjoy the many warm experiences winter brings to life.
