Introduction:When the weather is cold outside, refer to my suggestions of warm things to do on a cold day.
Wander somewhere warm. How about exploring an arboretum? Breathe in the lushness and warm your inner-self with all the pretty colors. Surrounding yourself with fragrant plants in a warm arboretum will trick your mind into the happy belief the spring growing season is happening now.
Go to your favorite greeting-card shop. Browse until you find the perfect card to send yourself. Read witty greeting cards and laugh out loud. Think of upcoming occasions and buy appropriate cards. You can tick that chore off your list. When you get home, write something wonderful to yourself, stamp and address the perfect card you selected.
Take a field trip to your local library. Before you go, pick one letter of the alphabet. Scope out authors whose last name begins with the letter you chose. Check out a book from those authors for each member of your family. Declare one night without TV for reading.
One cold winter evening, dine by candlelight. Play time travel with the family by pretending you are pioneers. Give everyone a turn to imagine living in bygone days. Some topics: what would we have eaten, what would we do for fun and where we would work?
Wrap up in a comfy blanket and look at old photo albums or yearbooks. This is an excellent opportunity to remember old friends. Take time to remember where you were in life as you look at various pictures. Were you happier then? Why? What could you change about your life to get the happy back? If you're happier now, or about the same, consider contacting one of those old friends
On cold days, there is only one place I want to be - indoors. If you're like me, think of your favorite warm things to do on a cold day. Do them!
