There is no bad weather, only bad clothes

Norwegians have a saying, “Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlig klær!” which translates to “There is no bad weather, only bad clothes!” In Scandinavia, where weather can be notoriously changeable and can get quite cold, the locals still enjoy making the most of the outdoors, regardless of the weather. There is a general sense that the weather, like most things in life, is as bad as you make it to be. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Finland, Norway and Denmark are ranked top in the list of the happiest countries in the world.

So when the weather has you stuck indoors, consider how a change in mindset (and clothing) help.

Forest bathing in snow is a wonderful experience, especially when feet are warm and dry and the wind cannot slip through my layers.
