Moving to a cold climate

One of the great things about modern times is that we are free to explore more of our planet than ever before. Just 100 years ago traveling this fire and wide was not available to a common person. But today, with a globalized economy and air transport, you can pursue a life in or simply visit a wast majority of countries on Earth. This has, however, lead to more people moving out of their comfort zones. This is most often the case of a cultural or language shift… but what about changes in weather conditions? What if you are moving from a hot environment to a cold one? What if you are moving to a cold climate? Well… then you came to the right place, haven’t you? 

Layers, layers, layers

Ok, so when you are moving to a cold climate via movers Rye NH, the first thing we need to talk about the layers. As you need a lot of them. Layers are there to protect you from ill effects of cold weather. Furthermore, they will stop you from getting wet or from wind piercing the clothes, both of which can make you some problems if it is already cold outside.

How many layers do you need to stay warm?

If you never layered before, here is how it generally goes. Except for the freezing cold, you wear normal clothes. Underwear, T-shirt, jeans/pants whatever. Over the T-shirt, you will need something warmer and with long sleeves. In a wealth that is not below freezing, you will do just fine with this combination and a good, wind-resistant jacket. However, if it is colder, you need some additional armor. The jacket you wear should be bulky and layered itself, making sure you keep all the heat.

Oh, and there are also gloves (a lot of those come with touchscreen-friendly materials, so that’s cool), hats and scarfs. All of them are there to protect you from the cold air and wind (and make you look rather awesome).

Don’t stay inside all the time

If you moving to a cold climate, don’t stay inside all the time. Yes, we know that it is the warmest there, but you need to acclimatize. So make sure you take frequent walks after your moving day with movers Atkinson NH is done
