KUNGS’ 4 SECRETS TO SURVIVE WINTER LIKE AN ARTIC BOSS
- USE THE COLD TO YOUR ADVANTAGE Low temperatures inspire many in the Nordic region to get together outside and enjoy the ‘fresh’ weather that only winter can bring. Take advantage of what winter has to offer: Plan a day trip to your nearest sauna, go sledding on the nearest hill or simply throw snow at your friends and family. Here’s a “cool” idea: Pack a warm thermos of soup to enjoy after a wintertime ski run—and have a picnic right in the snow!
- DRESS LIKE YOU MEAN IT One of the key reasons winter-haters despise the cold is that they simply don’t know how to dress for it. The people of the Arctic know better. It’s easy: Before heading outside, make sure you’re properly clothed. The secret? Multiple layers. A thick winter coat is essential, along with waterproof gloves, wool socks, a scarf, a hat, and of course, snow boots! Several layers of pants can help, as well. Arctic tip: Allow yourself some extra time (10 minutes) to get in and out of those extra articles of clothing.
- WINTERIZE YOUR CAR Got a car? Then you’re going to want to prepare it to handle winter conditions without a hitch. Stock your car with an emergency kit, consider winter tires for better traction, and thoroughly check your battery before the cold strikes. In winter precipitation, visibility is crucial. Keep both a snow brush and a durable ice scraper on hand—and be sure your ice scraper can de-ice windshield wipers. I recommend grabbing Kungs ice scrapers and snow brushes, which are available at Sears Auto Centers across the Northeast.
- YOU CAN ENJOY WINTER INDOORS, TOO The winter months are ideal for wrapping up in a blanket and cozying up next to a warm fireplace (or space heater), glass of wine in hand. Even the best Arctic bosses aren’t afraid to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a winter day indoors. Arctic boss tip: Get cozy with your significant other and surprise them with a hot cocktail!
