•Keep the body active

Instead of holing yourself inside the room and curling down in your bed under the blanket, get up and do some activities and exercises. Watch your health and fitness and try harder in staying active. If you can run or ski on the snow or do some biking outside, do so but with protective gears on.

•Fight off the winter blues

You may not feel happy or gay because of the winter season but you have the choice to be happy. Whether you are down or you are not in the mood to be happy, push yourself and fight off the winter blues by staying positive. Think of happy moments and be positive in life that winter days are the special time of the year to experience different things. Don’t allow the winter season to depress you. Remember that there are so many things that you can do during the season.

•Protect your skin and eyes

Winter days usually come with dry air that also dries up the skin and the eyes. Use protective creams and lotion to keep your skin and eyes protected and healthy. If you are going out to enjoy the winter season, or even at home, use some protective gears to cover up your skin and eyes. There are also humidifiers for the house to keep air humid and not too dry.

•Drive safely

Whether the snow is still thin or is already thick, take extra care driving outside in the snow. Sometimes, the snow is the worst enemy of any vehicles. Prepare your car for the winter season or avoid taking your car outside to avoid technical and mechanical issues. If you can’t avoid it, make sure you have useful tools with you to solve frozen doors or to plow some snow. A kitty litter may help when you are stuck in the snow. A floor mat can be used too.

•Be sure to stay healthy

Avoid sickness by being healthy and fit. Since the cold season is in full swing, you do not know when it will be colder or warmer. You may not directly get colds from the cold weather, but when the weather changes, it may directly affect you. Take extra care of your body by sleeping soundly at night, eating a healthy diet each meal, and by being active physically. In case you caught colds, ask your physician for medical assistance. Proper hygiene is also important in keeping your health. Although it seems difficult to wash with water during the cold winter months, washing periodically is very essential and helpful to prevent sickness and other illnesses brought by germs and bacteria.

•Heat up!

Heat yourself up with thick clothes and socks and caps. Check the windows and doors if they are properly sealed. The heater can be helpful, but you should know how to use it wisely. Keep your head, neck, hands, and feet covered to prevent heat from going down your body.

•Hydration is key

Dehydration can be your worst enemy in any climate. Make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. One way to know whether you are dehydrated is by checking the color of your urine. Darker urine means your body needs more water or else, your body will become weaker and unhealthy, thus weaken your immune system.


•Keep lines open

You or someone you knew may need help at some point in time during the cold winter days. Make sure your lines are open for help and to get help. Call for help from a family, friend, doctor, or government agency when needed. To keep lines open, make sure that you also have backups. Reserve some batteries for your phone or have an extra phone that you can use anytime. Also, it will be helpful if you have a list of people and local agencies to call for help, especially when things get tougher than you expected.

Surviving the Heat

Even before the hot weather comes along, you can strengthen your body and make it fit and healthy. One way is to plan for it and be prudent. Plan ahead of time and prepare what you will need for the period of time. Part of planning is preparing your body for the expected hot season. When you sleep well each night or eat nutritious foods each meal, you also strengthen your immune system. This will keep you on the edge for any climate. Surviving the hot temperature weather will be easier for your body if you are healthy inside and out.

•Again - hydration is key.

Drink water all the time depending on your body size and your activities. It is best to drink small amount of water more often than to drink plenty of water in one gulp. Cool water may also help the body beat the heat. If you can’t have cool water, keep your bottle of water out of direct sunlight. Make sure that you have plenty of sources of water when travelling. Check the routes where you can replenish water supplies along the journey.

•Wear climate-specific clothes and gears

It may seem better to remove clothes whenever you feel the heat of summer, but the truth is that it will only cause you other unpleasant effects. Remain clothed as much as possible, but choose the clothes you wear. Lightweight clothes are perfect for the hot season. Hats, shades, and scarves are helpful also. If you cannot avoid exposing your skin under the sun, do not forget to use sunscreen protection.

• Stay cool

Rest if you must to cool down your body. There are shaded areas to go to along the way. But if you cannot find a shaded area, be creative and make one for you and your family. If your water resource is going low, avoid eating and avoid physical activities until you replenished your water supplies. Wearing loose and breathable clothes will also help you keep your body cool throughout the day. If you need to work heavy tasks, better do it in the morning while the heat is not yet in its peak or late in the afternoon before the sunset when the temperature falls down a bit.


Survival in any climate is easier if your body is flexible and adaptive of the changing temperature. Whether it is hot or cold outside, your body is designed to cope up with the change of climate with its natural immunity. But then you still have to be responsible of what you do to take care of your body. Proper nutrition, self-discipline, and mental abilities will be your best armor against the changing climate. The more you train yourself for these tough situations, the more you equip yourself with the right abilities to survive the climate.

Keeping in touch with families and friends can be helpful as well. If you live far from them, make sure that you have an open or direct communication or means of contacting them, just in case you will need immediate help. Keep contact numbers of your physician too, so that you can immediately ask medical assistance in case you are severely affected physically by the change of climate. Medicines for colds, cough, fever, and dehydration should be in your first-aid kit at all times.

Most importantly, how you see things when the climate is not at its best is what will make you or break you. Your attitude towards the turn of events or change of climate is very essential. It will be your advantage if you have the positive attitude even when situations are getting tough. Your willpower to survive and your mental alertness will keep you determined to do what is right for the situation. Whether the climate is hot or cold, you can make life more convenient and enjoyable if you are equipped with the right knowledge to apply and if you are physically, emotionally, and mentally prepared.
