Snowbound Survival Guide
When it snows in the South everything shuts down- schools, stores, and even the liquor store. So at the first forecast of snow, we head to the grocery store and stock up on the essentials- milk, bread, water and wine. The only thing they don’t sell at stores is the cure for cabin fever, but fear not y’all I’ve compiled a true Snowbound Survival Guide for anyone regardless of geography.
Roll out your exercise mat, grab some weights and a water bottle. Check out my post about Energizing Your Exercise. It includes a playlist and a sample workout. Or Try an online workout like Cosmo Body.

3. Plan Your Summer Vacation
When I get the cold weather blues, I like to think of warm and sunny places. Summer beach vacations are my favorite. I love reading Leigh Hines travel blog- Hines Sight and being whisked away to a luxury hotel or resort. You can read more about her recent trip to Jekyll Island in Georgia at The Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
4. Read a Book
Looking for a new book to read and not sure what to choose? Then head on over to Tanya’s blog- Mom’s Small Victories and discover what she’s reading or has written a review on. I like how easy Tanya makes it to view the books she has reviewed by author, rating , and title. Don’t have a Kindle to download new books on? Now worries, you can easily download the Kindle App for free on your phone.
5. Try a New Recipe
Treat your family to something yummy and filling while you’re snowbound. Kel’s Cafe of All Things Food is a fantastic blog that showcases meals and recipes that are easy to recreate. I love Kelley’s Chicken Brunswick Stew, and it’s perfect meal on a cold day.
6. Get Organized
I know cleaning is not high on your list of relaxing and fun activities, but when you’re stuck inside you might as well catch-up on those neglected closets and drawers. Rather do it today, then on a warm sunny day. When I think of organization, I immediately think of Molly Gold of the Go Mom blog. She writes informational posts about staying organized. My favorite is her post about closet organization. So start your organizing now, and so you don’t have to worry about it later.
I hope you stocked up on the basics like bread, milk and wine. I hope your power is on, the heat is running, and your WiFi is working. Now sit back, relax and enjoy being snowbound. Please share in the comments how your family is handling being snowbound, and if you tried one of the activities listed in the guide. Most importantly, stay safe!
