Anxiety rears its fugly head

I would like to know why my anxiety always ratchets up in February, and is the worst during Lent?

Historically, February was the stage in the medieval year when food supplies were exhausted and preserved provisions lacking in nourishment. In addition, the climate took its toll and human mortality dipped to its lowest point in the year along with a diminution in sunlight. The young and the old, especially, were most vulnerable.
I believe that such hardships have become fixed within our support systems and even today, February is the month where our systems and reserves are at the lowest.
Just a thought.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
