Recognise these winter struggles?
January, what to do about it? Christmas is over and we’re ready and waiting for spring, but it’s so far away. The days are short and cold, and you just don’t feel like going outdoors. Are you such a summer lover too? Then these 10 winter struggles must sound familiar.
1. The scraping the windscreen ritual: Ugh! Getting up early because the car must be warmed up before you go and then having to scrape ice for a half hour as well. No wonder you get to work every day a half hour later.
2. The lost gloves: When you have to go outdoor, but can’t find your gloves. How on earth do I always lose the darn things? Have to buy a new pair every couple of weeks.
3. The winter clothes struggle: Doesn’t matter how layers you’re wearing, it’s still feels cold and you are too. Then when you do finally warm up, you end up sweating like a pig. Terrible!
4. The dry skin: your skin is always dry. No matter how much day cream you slather on, it’s dry, dry, dry! The same goes for your lips, you keep on greasing up, but nothing happens.
5. The getting up in the cold: It’s incredibly difficult to crawl out of bed in the morning. Especially when you’ve made a nest out of 5 blankets and it’s sooo comfy. No way you’re getting out of bed on time today.
6. The morning shower: You skip the morning shower one time too often because you just can’t bear to walk to the shower in the cold.
7. The short days: When five o’clock feels like midnight. Why must it get so dark so early?
8. The winter hat : Your hair always looks frizzy because you have to wear a hat outdoors; not so cute!
9. The constant runny nose: The runny nose keeps on running, and just to make things worse, you catch a cold.
10. The Cute or Comfortable Choice: Your fancy clothes stay in the wardrobe because you have to choose between cute or comfortable, and that choice is quickly made.
But along with all these struggles, the winter does have its moments. For instance, you can endlessly slurp hot chocolate and snuggle up with your lover. Recognise these winter struggles? Or do you really enjoy a bit of cold? Let us know!
