December has passed, and now it is the start of a new year. While we bring in the new year, many of us also bring in colder weather. We've made it through Decembers chilly temperatures, but really, we haven't seen anything yet. January and February are likely to bring us large snow storms that will keep us from doing anything for multiple days. There are many things that you can do, though, to keep your sanity in tact while stuck inside for multiple days.
1. Make some tea/coffee/hot cocoa
There is nothing a warm drink can't fix on a cold day.
2. Go For A Walk
Yeah, it is cold. But the snow can also be really beautiful and serene.
3. Bundle up and get cozy
This is my favorite thing to do when it gets cold out.
4. Make a nice winter meal
It's time to break out that soup recipe you found on pinterest... if you have all the ingredients.
5. Use it as an excuse to not doing anything
If you've had a busy time at school or work, use this snow day as an excuse to do absolutely nothing and turn your mind off for the day.
6. Go out and play in the snow.
Playing in the snow is definitely fun at any age.
7. Make a fire if you can.
This one isn't always possible, but if you can making a fire and laying around with a nice book is always a good relaxing option.
8. Catch up on your reading/work
If you feel a burst of energy, use this as an excuse to bust out some work you've been needing to get done.
9. If you have animals, take them out to play in the snow.
Because dogs playing in the snow are basically the cutest things ever.
10. Online shop for clothes for warmer weather.
And then be upset for the next three months when you can't wear them.
