We hear you. It’s just so. darn. cold.
And yet, we all know the massive benefits of fresh air and getting outside, even in this cold, snowy, wintry climate. And especially during a pandemic.
To help motivate yourself and your kids, here are some helpful, tried-and-true tips:
1. Dress strategically.
It’s an obvious, but oh-so-important component of winter adventures. You simply must have gear that fits properly and keeps you and the kids warm.
As the noted British travel writer, Alfred Wainwright so wisely said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.”
Extended length cuff mittens make all the difference, and so do wool socks, full-coverage balaclavas, and hand-warmers. And remember, layers are key: Three on top, two on the bottom, and one pair of warm socks.
