This most recent cold front has officially catapulted us into the beautiful, magical time of year otherwise known as sweater weather. With visions of cashmere and fleece dancing in everyone's heads, let's take a moment to go over the things that make sweaters so dang amazing.

1. Comfort.

This is common knowledge for even the most novice of sweater lovers. Wearing a sweater is like getting a soft, woolen hug. And who wouldn't want that?

2. They can be worn all year.

It's common to see sweaters worn in some form or fashion no matter the season. Winter? Throw on a coat and some fur boots. Summer? Layer a lightweight one over a dress, romper, shorts, or anything pastel or floral. Literally any outfit, anytime is better with a sweater added. With that in mind though...

3. Sweaters are also seasonal.

Think autumn leaves. Shorter days. Pumpkins involved whenever possible. FALL, the sweet sound of every latte- drinking and boot-wearing gal (or guy), brings instant visions of pure bliss. Sweaters and fall go together like PB & J! As every aspect of life is just a little bit better in fall, so are sweaters.

4. They are unisex.

Sweaters have a certain practicality that literally anyone can wear them and look TOTALLY AWESOME. It's probably scientifically proven that a person wearing a sweater is automatically more attractive. Also the thing I love most about guys sweaters is how they are always 500% comfier than girls sweaters.

5. Christmas. Sweaters.

Because the only thing better than sweaters is sweaters that are Christmas themed. I don't need to say more.

6. Cardigans.

Essentially, cardigans are sweaters, but I like to put them in a special box because of the special place they have in my heart. Cardigans maximize the versatility sweaters already possess, and I never leave home without them (much to my friends' amusement). They are perfect for days that are too warm for an all out wool turtleneck but too chilly for just a t-shirt. I could go on and on about cardigans so I'll stop now.

7. Aesthetic.

As we have already confirmed, sweaters obviously make everything better. Sweaters are just more pleasing to the eye. I know if I am strolling through the mall trying to buy things I don't need and I see a mannequin or poster featuring a sweater, I am running straight for that store to buy five of them. There's just something about seeing sweaters that calms and comforts the mind, similar to a lavender candle or that first bite of a Chick-fil-a sandwich.

8. Sweatshirts.

The close cousin of sweaters, sweatshirts are yet another beautiful gift to mankind. A t-shirt and sweater combined, sweatshirts are the perfect combination of warm, stylish and COMFY. And you can get ones that say everything from a witty pun to a team you rep (like Texas A&M for example, can I get a WH**P!)

9. Warmth.

A more obvious and probably the most useful aspect of sweaters is their warmth. You can find sweaters for every level of warmth, from a lightweight cardigan for a warm breeze to a toasty turtleneck for those blistering winter days.

10. No two are the same.

There is an infinite number of sweaters in this world, which is both a blessing because there are so many to choose from and a curse because I want every. single. one. Now that you understand the true power and pure awesomeness of sweaters, Feel free to buy one in every material, shape and color. Or five.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
