No doubt, that you need to dress up in such a way to keep you warm from the cold atmosphere, but it is also important to keep in mind; never to over-dress in order to keep our body warm, that makes you inactive all day long. Try to layer yourself with a waterproof jacket, a sweater or a hat to protect your head from any injury. You can also wear a manageable scarf and gloves, but make sure that they should not tackle your face and make you fall on the surface. Wear footwear that is not slippery and always try to wear a bright colored outfit, so that others can see you from a distance.
2. Careful of the small thing:

Always keep your staircase and walkways free from snow and ice, this will not only protect you and your loved ones, but also the passerby from your home. When working at home, make sure that you don’t carry too much of a load in your hands, this may make you fall or slips in the winter season. Always watch your balance while you are walking in your home, always walk slow, rather than hurrying up for some work and slipping or falling on the surface.
3. Watch out:
Make sure that your kids are not messing up the room by throwing stuff all over the place and as ll as playing with the snow inside the home. The mess and the snow may end up making somebody or your even your kids to slip through it and have a very bad fall themselves. Putting the non-slippery mat all over the place, will help to keep your home dry and free from any form of wetness and falling situations.
