When the winter comes, I find myself wanting to retreat indoors to hide under a cozy blanket with a delicious mug of hot chocolate.

For me, winter is the season of comfort everything.

While I do quite love winter, it can be long, cold and the weather can be pretty treacherous, so I often spend a lot of time indoors.

This is where having a winter bucket list comes in handy.

Making a list helps me survive the winter, without getting bored, encouraging me to get out and participate in some fun stuff.

You see, like many, while I do love the winter months, they can seemingly drag on forever.

This is why it is most important for me to find ways to beat the winter blues because they can come on at any time.

I have found that having a bucket list for every season is a good idea, but for me, the winter bucket list is even more important.

It keeps me busy.

It encourages me to get out of the house and participate in activities, and most importantly it helps me survive the winter with my sanity intact.
