Learning to Enjoy the Cold Weather When You Dont Really Like It

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Being a professional moving company in Houston, we recognize that moving from a warm-weather area to a chilly climate may be jarring --- teeth-chattering, one might proclaim. Of course, you realized it would be cooler than where you used to reside, but you had no idea exactly how distinct almost everything in your life could well be. No more grabbing your car or truck keys and sprinting out the door with only jeans and a T-shirt on. Oh no. You have got to don all sorts of wintry paraphernalia before you can go outside the house. No more leaving the windows wide open throughout the day to get pleasant fresh air moving through the house. No, you must leave the windows locked and turn up the heat.
 

Yikes! Where to start? Well, what you should do is learn to take pleasure in the cold weather even when you do not truly love it. If you learn to accept the cold weather as opposed to thinking of it as your enemy, you simply could discover that there are areas of it that you enjoy! And even in case that you never grow to love the frigid weather, you can utilize various coping mechanisms that can make it a lot more tolerable.

MAKE THE HOME COMFY

A comfy home goes a long way when it comes to making your individual space comfortable and toasty and increases your general sense of well-being. Steer clear of the minimalist look - it will make your domicile feel and look cold. Cold weather cozy conjures images of plump couches in sumptuous material, comfortable throw pillows, area rugs or carpet.

Place some cozy lined house shoes near the front door. Walking on bare wooden floors or tile can be extremely uncomfortable in the wintertime, particularly if you are not used to it. Carpeting your residence or getting a few area rugs or throw rugs goes a long way when it comes to keeping your toes warm and may make your house feel cozier.

Bake something. Keeping the oven on will warm your home…and, the marvellous aroma of fresh bread or cookies in the oven will be plain comforting. You'll feel much better.

Get insulating windows treatments, such as honeycomb shades or heavy curtains, to block the cold.

For those who have a fireplace, make use of it! Nothing is more pleasing than resting on the sofa, sipping some hot cocoa, with a crackling fire going. Electric powered fireplaces do the trick, too.

WEAR THE PROPER ATTIRE WHEN YOU GO OUTSIDE

Venturing outside when you are not dressed for it is unpleasant, so be equipped for the cold weather when it is time to venture out. Put money into some sweatshirts, sweaters, down jacket, waterproof lined boots, wool socks, hats, scarves, and gloves or mittens. Dressing in toasty layered clothing definitely makes the winter weather a lot more endurable.

CONSIDER NEW THINGS - EXPERIENCE COLD-WEATHER OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES

No, it's not possible to go swimming outdoors…but the cold weather provides extremely fantastic outside possibilities that you simply will not have in hot weather - for example, snow. Learn to embrace the snow and like it. Rather than thinking of snow mainly as a burden (shoveling, scraping your windshield, traveling on slippery roadways), consider all the fun times it could produce. Watch kids playing in the snow. They LOVE it…building snowmen, a fort, having a snowball fight, creating snow angels, going sledding, or even just sliding down a incline on a piece of cardboard. Indulge your inner child and play.

Consider ice skating. It is a fun activity and will really get the cardiovascular system pumping, which then raises your body temperature. Should you get efficient at it, the fluid and repeating motion are very calming. It is a easy way to meet people, too. Should you be more adventurous, opt for skiing or snowboarding. Many mountain regions have snow schools which offer training in the essentials. When you drift down the mountain, you can't help but be affected by the magnificence of nature all around you. You are going to feel invigorated.

Take it from us, your professional movers in Houston, yes, moving from a hot to a cold local climate requires getting accustomed to. But if that's where you end up, you may as well make an effort to enjoy what it has to offer. As the saying goes, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"
