Your Wintertime Survival Plan

Here are some of the responses we've heard when we asking people about their wintertime survival plan:

I'm going to smother myself in cabbage and beer. And Exercise.

Join the YWCA for the pool and hot tub. Buy a space heater. Stop being so hard on myself. 

Dance party catharsis. 
Wear unseasonally flamboyant clothing. 
Take multiple hot showers per day. 
Have multiple lovers. 
Accept that I will be less productive because so much energy is spent on just not freezing to death. 

Savory waffles, dreaming big, pet snuggling, coffee, and sex. 

Enjoy the sunshine, bake often, bundle up and walk, ice skate, take Vitamin D, hibernate under blankets on the couch, complain about the cold. 

Jiu Jitsu, basketball games on cable, reading books, watching movies, fucking with motorcycles.

Eat good food, cook good food, take in art of all kinds.  Exercise.  Love on my wife and pets.

Keep in touch with friends. Take a lot of vitamin D and exercise a ton.

Plan out opportunities to be with loving, supportive people- especially my family. 
Be careful about the books I read and movies I watch in the depths of winter because really dark and pessimistic media just gets to me. 

Vitamin D, but now they're saying vitamin supplements are ineffective at best, but my expensive little placebos are …fun?

Hibernate. Eat whatever I want, whenever I want it. Go to bed after dinner time. Sleep in in the morning. Spend time outside every day. Knit. 

Be outside often. Remember that the sun is still the sun. Read books. Write letters. Spend time preparing luscious meals. Create imaginary spaces. 

Warm beverages, whiskey, hot sex, dancing, social time, and my super puffy coat.

Walk the dog. Go to dance. MPR.

Play in the snow with my kids. Get full spectrum lightbulbs.  Make bread.

Enjoy that winter forces me to examine and feel things that I might forget about when I’m continually frolicking outside surrounded by green things.

Keep busy. Take lots of naps. Yoga. Coffee. Finish working on the basement. 

Walk my golden retriever every morning no matter how cold it is.

Stay warm! In other news, our performance dates have been posted! Shows start February 13.
