Once the holidays pass, winter can lose some of its charm. Without the magic of the holidays, the season goes from “winter wonderland” to “cold darkness without end.” We’re still weeks away from the first rays of spring. If you’re starting to worry winter might never end, here are some ways you can enjoy the season again.
The first step to enjoying winter again is simply embracing the season! There’s so much you could be doing to make each gray day interesting. Here are some great ways to get outside with the whole family, even if you aren’t living in a stunning snowscape.
Colder weather and shorter days mean most of us aren’t getting as much sunlight as we need. This can lead to a deficiency of vitamin D, a vitamin that’s essential for maintaining our immune system — and our good mood. Research shows seasonal depression is often linked to vitamin D deficiencies. Help improve your physical and mental well-being this winter by learning how to increase your vitamin D levels.
Sometimes, the best way to deal with winter is to get away from it all. U.S. News has compiled this list of beautiful places around the world where you could spend the last of the winter months. Check out these amazing locations and start planning (or at least daydreaming about) your perfect winter getaway.
