Winter is the season that most people dread as they count down the weeks, days and hours until the temperature starts to climb. If you meet each winter with trepidation and want it to pass more quickly, here are some tips to get you through the season.
Play a winter sport
Depending on where you live, skiing or hockey might be popular and available. You might prefer ice fishing, skating or curling. The list of options is endless. And if you’re trying something for the first time, the combination of learning something new and expanding your social circles might turn winter into your favorite time of year.
Take up an indoor hobby
If anything to do with the outdoors or ice sends shivers up your spine, staying busy indoors might be just the thing you need. Painting, baking or woodworking in a (heated) garage are some fun activities that can help you ignore old man winter until he’s gone. Make it a winter-only event and you might find yourself looking forward to the colder weather.
Do an indoor renovation project
Do you have projects around the house that you’ve been neglecting? If you couldn’t find the time during camping season, now’s the best season to get it done. You’ll feel productive and by the time the snow melts, you’ll have something to show off.
Plan a fun winter vacation - instead of waiting for the summer
Most people plan getaways in the summer. They crowd airports, campsites, beaches and resorts. If you had intentions of visiting the Caribbean in the summer, why not make it a winter escape instead? Splitting the winter season with a break on a toasty beach is sure to make it go by quicker.
Hibernate a bit
After the long daylight hours of summer, having non-stop fun, you may need a break. Late bedtimes while the sun streams through the curtains will eventually take a toll on your body. Use the long, chilly nights to snuggle up for a long rest. Slow things down and let your body recover for next year. Your body will thank you!
Dealing with winter shouldn’t include having issues with your heating and plumbing. If your home could use some improvements in order to make sure you’re warm and ready for the cold weather, give us a call so you can focus on the fun stuff!
