Winter is not my favorite season, and I have to walk to work in the weather, but I can see a lot of good about this time of year. I love the holidays, so the first part of the season is set. I’ve always seen January as the Monday of the year, though, and have had to come up with good ideas to perk up this part of the year.
Many people will, of course, get started on their New Years’ resolutions, and that’s great! Some of my favorite things to do are what many other people like to do: read, binge watch favorite shows on TV, and visit friends. Or for the more active times, go for brisk walks or hiking in the beautiful scenery the state in which I preside provides.
Apart from that, winter, for those who prefer not freezing outside can be spent in some great ways indoors. I’m the artist/musician type, so I’ll just list some of the less common things one with creative proclivities might enjoy when the weather is too cold.
How about inventing a game? This can be as simple as making your own crossword puzzle or card matching game, or perhaps trying your hand at making a simple jigsaw puzzle? If you invented a board game or electronic game, how exciting would that be?
If you like to cook, why not try a new recipe from a different country or a different state? If you’re a writer, why not try writing a short story in a new (for you) genre, or reading in a new genre?
Learning is always, in every season, a good idea too. There are lots of languages and musical instruments to choose from. Have fun!
