Basically… the two don’t mix. Luckily, with a positive attitude just about anything goes.
Today was incredibly cold here in my hometown. It was so cold it almost became humorous listening to myself sing myself a pep talk. “It’s a beautiful morning. I think I’ll go outside for a while and smile. Take in some of that [cold,] fresh air and…” You may laugh… but you know what? It worked. By the time I got to work I was in awe of the beautiful snow. I was refreshed by my walk through the parking lot. And I was SUPER grateful for the heat in my office (which I normally find to be rather insufficient). It was a great way to start the day.
The end of the day was a bit less energizing. Check out how bundled I am… even now, after I’ve been home for 5 hours:
I've got a turtleneck, a turtleneck sweater, and a scarf. Indoors.
G’night fibrofolks. Take care of yourself and your fibromyalgia during your winter weather. And remember, there’s no reason it can’t be fun and refreshing.
P.S. I suggest you not choose a day like today to prove to yourself you can walk a long distance.
