Is snow really that dreadful?
Is it all terrible and annoying? Oh well, if it were, the snow resorts would have gone out of business.
The Scandinavian population would be extinct, and the Winter Olympics would never have seen the light of day!
Snowfall and a snow day is actually a great time to sit back and chill. Hangout with family and friends. Eat sumptuous foods. And engage in sports.
5 of the most favorite activities during a snow day you can enjoy are:
If we’re honest, we’ve been watching our diet all throughout the year. But winter is not the time for it.
Yes, bears are not the only hibernating animals. If you don’t enjoy the outdoors, stay at home. Whip up all the delicacies and eat to your heart’s content.
Indulge in soups, chocolate drinks, porridge, oatmeal, steaks and veggies. Besides tickling your taste buds, you actually need the energy to keep your body warm. Get to eating all that you’ve been wanting throughout the year.
Kick the calorie count out of the window. Let the accumulating fat and love handles be damned. You can get back your six-pack during the spring just in time for the summer.
Another fantastic and productive activity you can do during the snow days is reading. We have all the accumulated books throughout the year. Gifts from family and friends, the best seller you bought but never found the time to read.
Snow days are a perfect time to mow down all of those. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down, grab your favorite blanket and let your beloved writer take you on a journey. You don’t have to be book worm to know that books can transport you to a magical world. We will not even begin to talk about the benefits of reading.
There is a reason why the ultra-rich and famous always go on a vacation to the Swiss Alps during the winter.
They get to experience the snow in all its glory. Well, all of us cannot pack our bags and head to the Alps. However, if you live in a place cold enough for snowfall, chances are, you have a place to hang out and enjoy the snow.
Try your hand at skiing, or skating at an ice rink. Hell, learn to snowboard if you have the inclination.
You can also participate in competitions while skiing.
You will probably put on a cheesy costume, not win the competition and fall flat on your butt but by God! There will be laughter and enjoyment.
Another advantage is that you get to work out your body. Engaging in snow sports is a very physically intensive activity.
You probably have a couple of 4×4 lying in the shed or a garage. Make use of them.
Have a driving competition with your kid or partner. Or teach your kid to drive his 4×4 toy. What better way to bond with your kid than doing an activity he loves.
It will be something that we will remember for a long time. Spending time together and having fun need not require lots of dough.
Not a sunny beach in some tropical country. No.
A beach with frozen mountains and frozen lakes. Sounds incredulous? Many ski resorts have a scenic panorama of snow covered mountains.
You can enjoy at a bar or restaurant by the beach. You can engage in active sports or just sit around and enjoy the view.
Free skiers and snowboarders whip by as they flaunt their latest stunt. You sip beer as you gobble down a barbecued chicken.
Ah! Can life get any more idyllic? And all this in the belly of the snow! Sometimes you wonder at the tenacity of humans, and you find yourself smiling.
Wrapping it up,Winter and snowfalls are not all about doom and gloom. It is a perfect time to catch up with friends and family. It also provides an excellent time to relax and indulge in self-care.
There is everything for everyone, whether you are an outdoor loving person or an indoor kind of person.
