How to outlast the extra 6 weeks of winter

Winter can be one of the most unwelcome times of the year. It leaves so many people freezing cold when they go outside, and it can also mean having to endure backbreaking yard work and snow removal. Unfortunately, winter can run longer some years than others, especially depending on what that groundhog has to say. An extra six weeks of winter can mean like a death sentence is being passed down for some of us. However, there are ways to cope. Dealing with the last six weeks of winter does not have to mean surviving in depression because there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Warm Clothes

It might not be time for that maxi dress just yet, so long as the chilly wind blows anyway. Wearing warmer clothes and making use of layers can be the best way to survive the cold weather. Suffering through frozen fingers does not have to be an option, so make sure you always keep a warm pair of gloves on hand. A pair that repels water is also a great option to avoid snow melting into your fingers and sticking there. Boots are the perfect way to keep warm, and they also allow for hiding that thick pair of socks, too.

Stay Active

Keeping fit is something that we might only consider doing in the warmer months. However, keeping active during the winter also means staying warmer as it increases blood flow. Other than shoveling snow, there are plenty of things to choose from in order to stay fit and warm. Some activities to keep during the winter months include ice skating, snowboarding, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowball fights, and sledding. Traveling through the dense snow takes a great deal of energy, especially when doing these activities. It also means making time go by faster so Spring can get here sooner, too!

Enjoy Cooking Warmth

One of the better ways to deal with the colder weather is to warm up from the inside out. We often do the opposite in the summer, so it only makes sense to do it now when the weather is frightfully frigid. Many recipes can be done that use a large stockpot or even an oven. The great bonus to making warm food in the winter means also warming our homes a little more instead of just warming our tummies.

Stay Hydrated

Even though eating warmly is a great way to stay healthy and warm, there is also an even better to stay healthy during winter. Some people forget to stay hydrated while they are dealing with the cold out of doors, too. Stay hydrated in the winter can be easy, especially with all of the options for tea and hot chocolate that exist today. Many of these recipes can be made on your stove top right next to that boiling stew. Drinking tea can also be relaxing, and as it warms you up, it can also help to deal with any flu or cold symptoms that you may also be experiencing during this time of year.

Staying warm during the winter and keeping active while staying hydrated do not have to be the only concerns you face during the winter months. Taking under these tasks can mean making the last six weeks of winter go by all the faster. Therefore, survival is not only of the fittest in this case. In reality, enduring the cold with these methods means survival of the person who plans ahead and wants to be active and warm.
