Winter has arrived here in New York, bringing about lovely things like family get-togethers, the new year, snow days, and football playoff season. 

The bad news? Wintertime also brings about some annoying (and sometimes nasty) changes to your body, attitude, and energy. Ew.

Even if you feel completely normal now, something will inevitably happen to your gorgeous self that will make you feel like a disgusting person who doesn’t want to leave the house. 


It’s more than just getting sick - the freezing winter weather can bring about changes to our bodies that aren’t just annoying, they’re straight-up gross. From flaky skin, noses that leak like faucets, and feeling bummed out and exhausted during the work day- winter weather can wreak havoc on our systems inside and out. 

New York State residents are probably used to it by now, but it doesn’t make these bodily changes any less infuriating.

But hey - at least it happens to all of us! Almost everyone has at least one physical reaction to the cold winter temperatures that’s generally irritating. Just be sure to keep some spare kleenex in your pocket (for yourself, or to offer to that stranger who might have a “bat in the cave.”)
