Sunglasses To Snow: How To Deal With The Unpredictable Weather

The British weather has left us all baffled this week following some unpredictable forecasts. Having been outdoors enjoying the lovely spring weather last week in our sunnies and short sleeves, waking up to snow this morning was a shock to the system as we got our big winter coat back out!

With the miserable weather often leading to a miserable mood, wellness experts at Eden’s Gate ( have shared their top tips for dealing with the rapidly changing weather conditions. From dressing appropriately to preparing in advance, these tips will help you adapt to the unpredictable weather forecast with ease.

Layer up

When you never know what is in store, it’s always better to be safe than sorry! There’s nothing worse than heading out for the day in your winter wear following a chilly morning to find that it’s a beautiful day once the sun comes out or heading out in light clothing to find there’s a harsh chill when you’re in the shade. Wearing light layers makes it easy to add or remove items as necessary so you can adapt to your surroundings.

Adjust your shower

Regulate your body temperature quickly and easily by hopping into the shower if you’re feeling too hot or cold. When the weather is hot, there’s nothing more refreshing than a cold shower to get your temperature down and provide some relief. Similarly, a warm shower before bed is a great way to unwind and get cosy before you settle down for the night.

Think ahead

Depending on your schedule for the week ahead, is there any way you can plan according to the weather forecast? If you have outdoor tasks on the to do list, planning them for days where the sun is out and you don’t have to worry about rain can make the job at hand all the more pleasant. Especially if the tasks are weather pending, a little preparation can go a long way so keep an eye on the forecast and plan your day the right way.

Prepare for the unexpected

With the British weather being so unpredictable, stay one step ahead by keeping some extra items handy. A bag with some shorts, a spare t-shirt, a jumper and a warm jacket can come in particularly handy if the weather suddenly changes and you may thank yourself for keeping some extras in your car. This may also come in useful if you get a stain or mud on your clothing, being a quick fix whenever you need it.

Replicate the sunlight

If you’re somebody whose mood changes according to the weather, sunlight lamps are proven to be a beneficial addition to the home. By delivering a warm glow which fills the room, the lamp releases serotonin and melatonin to reduce anxiety and minimise seasonal depression so you can tackle the day with a more positive approach.

A comfortable home

Your home should be a consistent space in which you feel a comfortable temperature at all times. Find the optimum temperature for you and your family, normally 20°C during the day and 18°C at night, so you can keep your house warm when you get back in after a busy day out and about. Having somewhere warm to return to in the cold or somewhere cool to escape the direct sunlight in the summer can provide you with some much needed relief.
