**November is to Thursday as December is to Friday**. It is a month that lives in the shadows of the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” See, for example, this quote from Louisa May Alcott’s *Little Women*: >November is the most disagreeable month in the whole year. Such a phrase may be appropriate when describing the frenzy surrounding Election Day, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday. It’s even harder for those of us who live in places where the leaves don’t turn. And yet, November brings us an extra hour of sleep (Daylight Savings) and National Sleep Comfort Month. It is also a time when crisp mornings lead us into coffee shops for gingerbread and pumpkin-infused beverages. So, let’s extend that holiday spirit – and our overall wellness – by starting earlier.
