How to beat your winter cabin fever

Posted:

The snow this morning was just another dose of winter.  And at this point, you may be sick of staying indoors.

Maria Hoffman said,  "Staying home with three kids, yeah, I need to get out.  They need to get out."  People are sick of how the cold weather changes their lifestyle.  "Staying inside all the time, we're outdoor people," said Alisha Richardson.

So how can you break the fever?  Well you could act like it's summer and go swimming indoors.  "It's always 84 degrees in here," said Kyle Hovermale of Splash Universe in Shipshewana.  He's the resort manager there and said the cold weather has been helping business.  "I think this is an option for people to get out there really have some fun, it's a little bit warmer, get their mind off the cold outside," said Hovermale.

Michiana Family YMCA can also help you if you're itching to swim.  They're starting swim lessons next week.  "The more that they're here the more they'll feel better about everything they're doing outside the Y," said Aquatic Director Amy Milliman.

And what about golf?  That's another great warm weather activity you can start thinking about this weekend.  Because the Michiana Golf Show is at the Century Center in South Bend.  Sales Manager of Maple Hill Golf Course, Bob Kitchen said, they'll have, "balls, shoes, bags, clubs, wedges, putters, gloves, gps, clothing, pretty much everything that any golfer would want."

Kitchen said he can tell people have been getting a bad case of cabin fever.  "We've got four simulators and 8 heated stalls for winter time driving range and it's been extremely busy."

Of course it doesn't have to be a summer themed activity to break your cabin fever.  You can always get outside and enjoy the winter weather by ice skating.  Nibco Ice Rink Manager Karen Mathias said, "It's a great way to get outside.  We're in this cold weather, we might as well be outside enjoying it. By skating you stay a little warmer"

There's also always skiing and the inner tubing hill at Saint Patrick's County Park is planning to be open this weekend.
