During the time of the year where we’re usually faced with spring fever, the dreary skies and disappointingly low temperatures seem to be inducing a different kind of fever- cabin. If you’re starting to feel like warm weather will never come, here are some ideas on how to deal with waiting for the spring weather to get here.
1. Visit your city’s library: Find an easy read you’ve been meaning to check off your list. Curl up with a pile of blankets or a fireplace, since these won’t have the same cozy affect when the weather is nice.
2. Look up travel deals: Nothing makes you want to go on a vacation more than seeing the day’s temperature high in the 40s. Indulge in some daydreaming by searching for trips to warmer weather and brighter days. You don’t have to buy anything, but you could find out that one of your dream trips is more affordable than you thought. Planning ahead can also end with you finding cheaper prices on your summer vacation.
3. Explore your city: This may sound counter-intuitive, but now is a great time to visit your city’s museum or art center. When the weather warms up, you’ll want to spend most of your time outside, so this is a great way to pass the time while you still want to stay indoors.
4. Have a picnic: Picnics are such a great spring activity; don’t let the weather stop you from having one! Gather up the family or a group of friends, pack a picnic lunch (complete with a blanket, of course), and set up a picnic in your house. At least you won’t have to worry about ants or the wind spoiling your meal!
