Top 5 Benefits of cold winter weather (look on the bright side!)
A month before winter officially begins, we’ve already been treated with that stupid polar vortex, temps in the 20′s, and wind chills in the single digits. WTF?
However, in an attempt to “keep calm” and be “more positive,” I have compiled a list of the Top 5 Benefits of Cold Winter Weather in Hoboken.
Improved Quality of Life
For one thing, the cold weather normally means you need to keep your windows shut. This reduces the ambient “city noise” one might encounter in their paper-thin-walled apartment. But you do the same on summer days, so what’s the difference?
The difference is when it is ice cold out, those who live near crowded bars will have even less noise than normal, as boisterous inebriated smokers will spend a significantly less time yammering about meaningless topics at the top of their lungs.
Improved (perceived) body image
This is a big deal for many ladies out there struggling to attain that perfect waif-like body image portrayed on mind-numbing tv shows and commercials. And during the summer season, wearing lightweight, often next-to-microscopically thin clothing, there isn’t much “forgiveness” when it comes to revealing one’s flaws.
So when it gets bone-chillingly cold, many women out there breathe a sigh of relief! Now figure-masking thick sweaters, bulky coats and more can compliment your insulated yoga pants and you can be more confident!
Big Tip: For those that love to “hide” beneath their wool pea-coats: Spring begins on March 20, 2015. Try not to let your bodies slip too much, or you’ll have an even more miserable next year!
