Dreading the Cold Weather? Here Are 14 Things That May Change Your Perspective

Heading into autumn means the cold Midwest weather is just around the corner. The thought of that brings me dread. In an effort to change my perspective, I decided to focus on what I like about cooler weather. Here are a few of the things on my list:

  • The smell of the cool crisp air.
  • Vibrant colors of the leaves.
  • The sound and the smell of a crackling fire.
  • Tucking your toes into a warm pair of slippers.
  • Football games.
  • Apple picking.
  • Fall festivals.
  • Curling up on the couch with a blanket.
  • The first snowfall.

How might changing your perspective help you in other areas of your life?

I love fall and colder weather, Kelli Schulte! Love this list of ways to enjoy it.
Kelli Porcaro
Ohhh see not me!! The hotter and more humid the better!! But I'm trying to shift my focus on what is fun about the cooler weather!!
Mike Prochaska
Me too! I don’t like wearing all those clothes.

I love how you're shifting your focus to the positive, despite the fact that you're not so happy about what's ahead, Kelli Schulte! I will add to the list: 1) wearing fun boots with my fall dresses, 2) wearing homemade scarves made lovingly by Jan Mostrom, 3) eating homemade applesauce lovingly made by Jan Mostrom, 4) cooking holiday meals with my kids (they each have a dish they're responsible for), 5) taking crisp walks with Dieter Schmitz! Thank you for making me realize not only the things I love about fall, but also my fave fall peeps! xoxo

Love the comments Elisa All 30SecondMom & Donna John! I love Fall but I dread winter. Thanks for helping me adjust my mindset Kelli Schulte!! Applesauce starts next week and the smells in the house ARE wonderful!

Why you hate winter? I love winter and the snow and exploring it with my kids. Once I get over the fact we have to dress prepared.
Dieter Schmitz
Dread the cold weather? I love it Kelli Schulte even though my Latina Love Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds counts down the days until spring!

I love this time of year and I will blame you if I pull out the xmas tree before Thanksgiving this year!! Thank you for this reminder of all the good stuff coming!

No cold weather here in Florida. Have the opposite of loving a warm fall here and being able to still go to the beach when ever we want. I will still bring fall into the house with decorations, hot chocolate for the kids and yummy fall comfort foods hit the spot no matter what the temperature is outside.
Nala Moon
I love this list, even when I'm allergic to that weather, everything you propose sounds great. :D
