1. Wear layers
Quite simply: not much is fun when you are cold. It’s time to add a layer. Wear long johns every day. Or, channel your inner 80s winter style with leg warmers. Wear the bum-covering parka. Cold feet? Merino wool socks are a winter must! Remember: hoods are a wonderful thing on a windy day. Whatever your winter layering style is -- being warm is the make or break starting point for any enjoyable winter day.
