With temperatures remaining on the low end of the thermometer, it’s easy to want to stay snuggled by the fire drinking hot cocoa. Although that sounds like a pretty great way to spend your day and night, it’s smart to have some other ideas to help you stay warm with your loved ones this winter. Take a look through these articles from our partners for some great suggestions:

1. Take a trip: If the weather is getting to you and you’ve just about had enough, take a break from the cold winter air. Considering how busy you are between work and family, you deserve a vacation! Try somewhere warm where you can bask in the sun while your children play in the sand. Check out these famous families that have been doing just that. (

2. Be careful: You’re off to the beach and ready to spend your day soaking up the sun. Even though Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, not everything has to be red. So make sure to keep your skin and eyes healthy by lathering on that sunscreen and wearing your shades. (

3. Arrange your gear: If you can’t take a trip to somewhere hot, be sure to bundle up before going outdoors. Stay organized this season by keeping all of your cold weather gear sorted neatly. The last thing you want is to be headed out the door in a rush with only one glove. (

4. Stay happy: No matter what your plans are, spend each moment with your family in pure happiness. Let them know how much they mean to you.
