5 Winter Tips To Help You Get Through The Season

Of the 4 seasons, winter can be the most trying. Cold temperatures, short days, and dry air can lead to a whole host of ailments, from cracked skin to the seasonable blues. These 5 winter tips are simple strategies to help keep you feeling fantastic through the long months of winter:

  1. Moisturize naturally. To keep your mane healthy during the colder months, use products infused with coconut oil. Vitamin E oil also helps fight static electricity caused by blow-drying and dry air.
  2. Cover up! Keep your hands covered throughout the season—the cold can cause skin to chap, which can turn into fissures and become infected.
  3. Check detectors. Cold weather and closed spaces can sometimes make for a dangerous mix. Remember to check batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms before winter sets in and keep doing so throughout the season.
  4. Keep the gray away. Populate your living space with splashes of color in pillows, draperies, bedding, and carpets.
  5. Go green. Plants not only purify the air, but can help put a “spring” in your step too. Add some near your work station and surround yourself in green.
  6. Walk out to winter. Getting fresh air during winter will stave off depression and keep you fit and healthy. If you encounter any ice or slippery surfaces, remember to walk flat-footed; that way you’re less likely to hurt yourself.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
