How are you doing? Today is the shortest (read: darkest) day of the year in North America. In New York, the sun will set at 4:31 p.m.

But! The good news is, the days will now get brighter every day for the rest of the winter. So, if you can make it through today, you’re all set. :)

Just a little PSA. Also, this made me laugh.

P.S. The best music for exercising, and stories about strangers. Plus, how to stay cheerful this winter.
