Keep on pedaling
Anyone who got obsessed with cycling this year has two options in the winter: Invest in cold-weather gear, or buy an indoor trainer so you can stay warm and dry.
Play in the snow
Mountain resorts all over the world have adopted new ways of doing business. Check out your favorite resort’s website to learn what they’re doing to keep snowboarders and skiers safe.
Boost your mental health
Depression spikes in the winter, and a sense of isolation can lead people to engage in risky behavior. Avoid both by planning ahead with ways to boost your mental health.
Shop for things that bring you joy
Yes, retail therapy is a thing. But don’t just consume indiscriminately. Think of the best way to be happy at minimal cost, whether it’s a comfort meal or 60 minutes of movement and escape at the yoga studio.
Don’t be S.A.D.
Say no to isolation
Say yes to counseling
Optimize your work-from-home space
Thriving in an environment where meetings have gone almost entirely online requires learning new etiquette and new tools. Basic upgrades, from a standing desk to mounting system for a monitor, can help make video chats less of a drag.
Explore safe, socially distanced commuting
Anyone who’s used to using mass transit but isn’t comfortable with crowded buses and trains will have to find new commuting options during the pandemic. Winter boots and/or traction cleats are one possibility for walkable but wintry commutes.
