Being a hibernating species is a big commitment.

From preparing to hibernate, to actually hibernating, to coming out of hibernation again, you can count on spending a good chunk out of every year just on this one project.

That doesn’t leave a lot of time left for socializing.

In fact, snooze for a lengthy enough period and you might feel quite legitimately shy about “getting back out there” after all that alone-time.

But with a little encouragement, you can be on your way to re-meeting and greeting and getting back into the swing of things again.

Soon you’ll be back to your old self, basking and just hanging out like hibernation never even happened!
