One person in ten considers winter their favorite season. Those who love to ski or snowmobile are probably a good portion of those who prefer winter.
Christopher Ingraham wrote an article in the Washington Post about how to survive and even enjoy winter. He says there are many good things about winter. Most people disagree. He explores how people enjoy winter. He recommends:
Stop being cold. Dress for the cold. Wearing warm layers virtually eliminates being cold. Long underwear may be appropriate at times.
Find activities outdoors that you can enjoy in winter. My experience is that zero degrees can feel quite warm when Nordic skiing in the woods. The air is fresh and clean. Alpine skiing can be similarly invigorating with warm cloths and goggles.
Walking in a park with warm cloths and boots also works.
Snowmobiling and ice fishing are things that some people get very excited to do. I talked to a man with a new ice house that looked like a camper. He was very excited for the ice to form.
Getting away to a warm location as a vacation has many advantages. Looking forward to a warm vacation gives you a few weeks of enjoyable anticipation. You have the time on vacation. When you get back to the cold, you know that spring is not far away. However, it is not a replacement for finding something to enjoy outside.
Get a dog was another suggestion from Ingraham. If you aren’t motivated to get yourself out for a regular walk, taking your dog for a walk every day is a good incentive.
OK , maybe warm cloths, skiing, a warm vacation and getting a dog is not enough to make winter your favorite season. Hopefully, it will make winter more fun and make it feel shorter.
