Hello everyone, I can't believe that it's October already.  It's as if September quickly vanished in a rain cloud. Already, I'm seeing Hallowe'en displays in the stores and, yes, Christmas ones, too. While fall is one of my favourite seasons, for many of us the shorter days can be a real time to wind down. Our bodies almost demand us to gear down energy-wise.  Add to that the transition of working back on campus during COVID-19 and we can end up feeling depleted and drained.
