When the cold weather hits, many people stay indoors. After all, who wants to leave the comfort of a cozy home and go outside to face freezing temperatures and slippery sidewalks? Not only does the winter season bring snow and icy conditions, but it also can affect how we feel. When we don’t want to leave the house, we may feel lonely or isolated from our loved ones.
