Actually, it's not a bad idea to start thinking now about how to make next winter more bearable. For me, it's about stacking the deck in favor of making the winter more enjoyable. For some, that means going somewhere warmer, but that's not much of an option for many of us. Often, we overlook the simple things. For example, how you dress will often impact the possibility of enjoying the cold. I find that too many times, I go outside in winter, poorly prepared, and quickly return to the house, belly-aching about how cold it is. However, if I dress warmly, it's much easier to embrace the cold. Many winter activities sound daunting, but snowshoeing, skiing, even a simple walk can be enjoyable with the right attire. Give it a try !
