In which ways do you make friends with this cold season and own it like a boss?
Well, I like it more when it’s colder than hot, if I had to choose between really freezing winter and extremely hot summer, I’d rather go for winter. It’s not like I love when it’s freezing, but I hate feeling like I’m roasting, all that heat and exhaustion and feeling like your brain is melting but not in a positive way. Still though, cold can be hard to get through when it’s like really hot, and I particularly hate being cold at night, I have cold hands and feet most of the time, and although I don’t particularly care about it nor notice it most of the time, at night, although I most often sleep with open window, I like to be warm and cosy, so that my feet won’t get cold and I can fall asleep, therefore I sleep with a hot water bottle or something like this for most of the year, besides summer months. Also, Misha is a very good thing to heat you up in winter. As well as good tea with honey and ginger, in the past I used to drink it with a little bit of Jack Daniels but nowadays I’m not that crazy about it and not like all the time. We had a particularly crazy Jack Daniels season with my Mum a couple of years ago when we lived without heating at our old house in late autumn, before we moved where we are now, and one of the ways we coped with the very overwhelming cold was drinking tea with Jack Daniels, or other good whisky. Also, hot baths are nice and helpful, though nowadays I try to avoid them as my skin doesn’t like them, so it’s like once in a while when I really can’t resist. Proper clothes are quite a basic thing I guess, some warm jumpers or blankets can be very useful. And I love eating spicy food at winter, it warms you up instantly. Good warm music can also be incredibly helpful, as well as some nice books to read and generally staing cosy.
How about you?
