hot cold

Are you a person that prefers hot weather or cold weather? It may be the case that many among us would prefer warmer climates. After all it would mean that we would not have to suffer in the winter cold, in the damp and wet of winter, and can happily go out without having to wear many layers. When you ask people about their holidays, they usually tell you that they are going to warmer climates, and are going for the experience of sun, sand and sea. Rarely is it the case that people fancy going to the colder climates – unless they are going to see penguins or polar bears!

Why is it that someone would want to go to a colder place though, especially if they are on holidays? Apart from the reasons that we have mentioned already, it may simply be that they like the wintry look of the landscape. The bleak, leaf-less trees may not be your kind of thing, but for others, it offers a kind of escape from their usual surroundings. For example, if you were from the Middle East, where temperatures can rise to forty or more degrees in the shade, in the height of summer you may be quite fed up of being baked to death and having no respite from the heat of the sun, so a trip to the colder climate may actually be a welome change!

Going on a holiday offers you a welcome change from the usual routine of work and life’s routines. When you go on a holiday, it would be a good idea not to check your emails and social media too often, as these are triggers for your daily life and if you were away, and did not take a break from them, it may feel like you have never been away at all. So when you take a break – take a real break!

And if you are not able to afford the time and expense of going on holiday, perhaps take up a new skill, such as woodcraft, DIY, or learning the piano. The Piano Teachers Crouch End website claims that learning an instrument while break up the monotony and tedium of your daily life, and being at a different pace to your routine, will make you feel less jaded and more positive. So why not give it a try?
