Though cold, snow and mud are miserable, winter isn’t all bad. As a matter of fact, there are several benefits that are available in winter that you just don’t have in warmer weather. One of them is having enough time for everything, so this is one big thing you can use to make the most of winter.
Get Things Done
When it’s cold outside, that’s the best time to get “inside” work done. Clothing needs darned, the walls need painted and stairs need repaired. Take advantage of poor weather to accomplish those tasks that have lingered around until you had nothing better to do. That time is now!
Christmas is coming and, for that matter, people have birthdays and anniversaries all year round. Take advantage of your time inside to get crafty. Whether you like to crochet or are super handy at wood-working, get ahead on your gift list. Then when a holiday rolls around, you’re all set. Make a few extras for those forgotten birthdays or unexpected occasions. This is a great opportunity for family time, too.
Learn New Skills
What else do you have to do? Learn a skill. Learn 5. We can’t express how much a Jack (or Jill) of all trades will be appreciated if SHTF. If there is something that you don’t know how to do around the house, pick up some books or take some classes.
