I feel the winter cold and darkness is limiting what I can do. How do you guys manage to stay productive, happy after work or once you get home given lesser daylight and the chilling winter? What changes do you make in your schedule, food, etc. Any other hacks etc. Thanks!

    Hot coffee. Hot bacon egg cheese salt pepper ketchup. Hot cheese pie. Then you emerge in the spring with your beautiful NYC winter belly!

      Exactly.. I am worried about the toll these 4 or so months take on your health both physical and mental.

    Summer bodies are made in the winter. Reduce your calorie intake.
    Skiing is the thing to do, there are so many resorts within 1-2 hours of every city.
    I leave town in February for an extended warm vacation with some WFH days.

    Crank up the temperature, sit next to a window in the day to get sunlight. Use bright lights in the room, they cheer up the mood.

    How do people work in the Bay Area where the weather never changes? How do they work in SoCal where the weather is always sunny? How do they work in Seattle where it always rains? You acclimate. It happens by itself with time.

    It's depressing. But what can you do. There is only so much you can eat, drink and smoke before you get bored of doing it everyday. Sigh.
