What if we ask you a simple question, “What’s the one thing that scares you about moving?” Well, some might say that they will miss hanging out with their friends, while some would say that they will miss the old house. And some would also say that they will have a tough time adjusting to the new climate.
Are you also planning to shift from a warm climate to a cold one? If yes, then hearty congratulations! You are trading a sweaty and humid climate for cozy and icy chilled weather. And it would be even better if you are a mountain person and love to roll down in the snow. But things can get a bit messy and frustrating if you don’t know how to adjust to the cool climate.
Yes, you read that right; living in colder regions isn’t all “sipping your coffee in your blanket,” it is mostly that, but there are other things as well to take care of for living a sustainable lifestyle in the cold region. Here are some things that can help you stay alive and live a comfortable life in your new icy cold home.
People who have lived in a warm region all their life might find it difficult to put on different layers of clothing. This is because they wore a comfy t-shirt all the time to deal with the heat. But now that you are moving to a colder region, you need to know that it is time for you to purchase all those comfy hoodies, leather jackets, and sweaters that can help you to stay warm.
Also, invest in some good quality woolen clothes such as socks, underwear, gloves, hat/cap, and a scarf. Make sure that everything is made up of wool because the more wool you put on your body, the warmer you’ll feel.
Keep the indoors warm.
If you are planning to migrate to a cold region, be prepared to spend most of your time indoors. So, it is better to make some arrangements that can help you keep indoors warm and cozy.
For this, you can also opt for installing an electric fireplace in the living room. It will not only create a comfortable environment in the living room but will also add to the beauty of your home interiors. Now, you might be thinking, how much energy do electric fireplaces use? So, let us clear that up for you. These fireplaces are known to be one of the most energy-efficient options for the home. This clearly means that it won’t spike in your electricity bills even if you use the fireplace all day long. That’s awesome. Right?
Drink a lot of liquids
Okay, we take our words back when we said living in cold regions is not all about drinking coffee in your blanket all day long. Don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated with water. And if you want to keep up with the dropping temperatures, you have to drink a lot of liquids such as hot chocolate, coffee/tea, and eat soup.
So, if you were thinking that you’ll have a lot of fun after migrating to a colder region, then you were probably right. Who doesn’t want to sit in front of a fireplace and read a book while sipping hot chocolate? You just have to make sure you stay warm, and everything else will be a piece of cake.
