November has arrived and brought the cold weather with it. There’s nothing quite like the  crisp, refreshing air of winter. The cold makes everything better. Because of this, I have compiled a few necessary activities to do in the freezing weather.

 

  • Swimming: Swimming is mostly known as a summer activity; however, it can be much more interesting in the winter. The refreshing feeling of plunging into gelid waters is unparalleled. When I was in middle school, I used to wake myself up every morning by jumping in my pool in the winter. Yes, it was frigid, but it was also very stimulating.
  • Running: As a runner, I dread training in the hot summer sun. This makes me appreciate winter’s frigid conditions. You can run as hard as you want and you might not even break a sweat. This makes running less about the hot and sweaty pain and more about the meditative mental state you reach. It’s more peaceful and calm when running in the winter.
  • Go to the beach: Taking a vacation to the beach combines the fun of swimming and running! You can run around and play with your friends, then take a nice refreshing dip in the ocean. Plus, the beach will not be a packed since it is winter.
  • Tennis: From a completely unbiased and impartial perspective, I think tennis is the most fun sport to play in the winter. You’ll never be uncomfortably hot. You’ll never need to wear a sweatband either. The balls are less bouncy, which means it is easier to hit them in. This makes a winter a great time for beginners and pros to go out and learn the fascinating game.
  • Camping: Camping is a wonderful way to become one with nature. The cold weather makes cozying up next to the fire a magical experience. Roasting marshmallows, watching the stars and many more activities make camping a unique adventure that is essential in the winter.
