    Hi ILs,

    How to survive winter?

    Please give me some suggestions, How to survive this winter? I am new to this area and came to know until April it will be cold here and I can expect snow for 3months! I can adjust to heat weather but not cold. I hate getting out in cold :(.

    By 5 it is getting dark and cold. Before I used to go for evening walk & meet some random people. Hi, Hello I used to feel good. But now I feel stuck. Give me some suggestions how to survive this winter? What you do in evenings and weekends ?

    I am not sure if i posted in correct forum. Moderator please move it to correct forum. Thanks.

    During winters the days does get shorter. I hate doing anything when it gets very cold. I call it the lazy weather as you don't feel the energy to do anything extra.

    Good thing about this weather,
    Good sleep - We usually do sleep longer during the colder days. So sleeping for more hours during winters are normal.
    Cozy weather - tuck yourself inside a blanket n watch movies or read a lot.
    Can cook/ bake / make hot drinks, hot treats, desserts.

    - try to go for your walks early before it gets dark. Check what time the others go for walks.
    - finish all your work before the day light goes out.
    - Play in snow, check out winter sports n entertainment.

    Some schedule change helps, have early dinner n hit the bed early too.

    Thank you @ashneys for your reply :)
    Yeah I feel like I am sleeping early but I am also tired with so much work from the whole day! work,DD & house hold. Sometime I feel I should take rest. By evening I get tired and back pain. But sometimes I feel I need to stretch myself and get out!

    There is no chance of completing my work early. I see like all others are going for walk in the daytime (aged people and house wifes. Good for them that they are still able to continue it.) I don't see any chance of me joining them! :(.

    Snow is good to see but not fun to play. As I said I get cold very easily. But I agree it is really beautiful view from apartment. :)

    Hi, how’s winter going for you so far ? I wanted to reply to you since I had been in the same boat when I first encountered winter where I lived. A couple of things that helped me :
    A) keeping the house very warm and TV on when at home at all times
    B) Good bright lighting in all rooms
    C) Dress up in layers starting with thermals and invest in a good jacket. Snug fitting comfortable boots ( Big No to sneakers) with thermal socks really helped keep my feet warm. Ofcourse good fitting gloves , scarf and ear muffs. You should be able to go for short walks comfortably .
    D) Finish your chores early preferably during the day. Have an early dinner and then focus on watching TV etc in bed.
    E) weekends socialize , have potlucks or invite people over for lunch.
    CE suggestion of arts and crafts is good too .

    Take care !
