[tiny tweak] Play in the Snow


Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together. – Verna M. Kelly

You probably started off life with a fond appreciation for snow. As a child snow means no school and snow ball fights! Sadly, for adults it means longer commutes, scraping car windows, and extreme slippage. Let’s not forget how fun snow is, next time it snows go outside and play!

I love the snow, it is only January and I have already been sledding 3 times! Snow has the magic ability to transform any outdoor location into a giant playground.

BIG CHANGE

Free Entertainment

Snow is a dirt cheap way to have fun. Snowmen and snow angels are free to make. Spend $10 bucks on a sled and you’ve turned your largest neighborhood hill into a theme park.

Bond with Friends

Considering that it’s a one-time investment, I purchased 4 sleds. Each time it snows I invite a different group of friends to come sled. There is something inherently funny about sledding and snow ball fighting (at an older age), which leaves everyone chuckling. Bonding experiences in the snow are some of the most fun and memorable.

Appreciate Nature

Time in nature cleanses the soul and puts the mind at ease. Your great ancestors evolved in the outdoors. Playing outside in the elements gives you a feeling of inner connectedness that can’t be replicated. Plus snow is gorgeous and can make anything look absolutely stunning. Going outside on a snowy day is a great way to appreciate mother nature and all her beauty.

Exercise

Playing in the snow is a vigorous activity. Whether you’re climbing to the top of a hill, dodging snow balls, or building a snow fort, you are moving. It’s so fun that you won’t realize how much exercise you’re getting… well, not until the next day.
