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

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As a professional moving company in El Paso, we understand that moving from a warm-weather area to a chilly climate may be jarring --- teeth-chattering, one may say. Of course, you realized it will be cooler than the spot where you used to reside, but you was clueless about just how different just about everything in your life could well be. You can forget about snatching your car keys and sprinting out the door with just bluejeans and a T-shirt on. Oh no. You will need to wear all sorts of wintry clothing items before you can head outside. No more leaving the windows wide open throughout the day to get pleasant fresh air flowing through your home. Not a chance, you will have to leave the windows locked and switch up the furnace.

Goodness! How to proceed? Well, what you need to do is learn to have fun with the winter weather even if you don't genuinely like it. If you master to embrace the cold temperatures as opposed to thinking of it as your enemy, you just might discover that there are aspects of it that you enjoy! And even in case that that you do not grow to adore the wintry weather, you might use a few coping mechanisms that'll make it a lot more bearable.


A comfortable house goes a long way towards making your own living space comfy and warm and improves your overall perception of well-being. Stay away from the minimalist look - it will make your house appear and feel cold. Wintry weather cozy summons images of plump couches in sumptuous material, soft throw pillows, area rugs or carpet.

Place a pair of comfy lined house shoes next to the front door. Walking on bare wooden flooring surfaces or tile can be very unpleasant during the cold months, particularly if you are not accustomed to it. Carpeting your house or getting a few area rugs or throw rugs will go quite a distance toward keeping your toes warm and will make your house feel cozier.

Bake something. Having the oven on can warm your house…and, the marvellous aroma of fresh bread or cookies in the oven is definitely simply soothing. You will feel much better.

Grab insulating windows treatments, like honeycomb shades or heavy draperies, to block the cold temperatures.

Should you have a fireplace, use it! There is nothing more inviting than relaxing on the sofa, sipping some hot cocoa, with a crackling fire going. Electric powered fireplaces do just fine, as well.


Going outside when you are not dressed for it is miserable, so be prepared for the frigid weather when it's time to head out. Purchase some sweatshirts, sweaters, down jacket, waterproof lined boots, wool socks, hats, scarves, and gloves or mittens. Wearing toasty layered attire helps make the cold weather a lot more tolerable.


No, you can't go swimming outdoors…nevertheless the wintry weather offers extremely enjoyable outdoor options that you simply do not have in hot weather - for example, snow. Discover how to embrace the snow and like it. As opposed to looking at snow just as a burden (shoveling, scraping your windshield, traveling on slippery roads), think of all the fun it can 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 hillside on a piece of cardboard. Engage your inner youngster and play.

Check out ice skating. It's really a great activity and might really get the cardiovascular system pumping, which in turn increases your body temperature. When you get efficient at it, the fluid and repetitive motion are very tranquil. It's really a fantastic way to meet people, as well. Should you be more daring, take up skiing or snowboarding. Many mountain regions have snow schools which provide training in the basics. While you move down the mountain, it's not possible to help but be affected by the beauty of nature all over the place. You'll feel invigorated.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
