Although I like cold environments overall, I don’t appreciate the cold air, because of how the cold air can irritate my throat as well as dry out my lips.
This is something though I expect every winter, because of how low the humidity is.
And for a long time it was something I just dealt with, I accepted it as a part of winter I would have to get used to. However, that all changed when someone told me how a humidifier would probably be good in my situation. I liked the idea of getting a humidifier, but I figured they were expensive. However, a quick check online proved the opposite, they were actually much cheaper than I had expected! So I went ahead and bought one from the local heating and cooling store, and waited impatiently for its arrival. It arrived on Friday, and I eagerly opened it up and tried it out. At first, I didn’t really notice much of a difference, but as an hour or so passed, you could definitely feel the dryness disappearing and being replaced with humid air. My sore throat and lips also disappeared with it. I only had to have the humidifier on for a few hours, before my home felt great. Then I turned it off and it lasted like that for the next few days. I realized that it was the perfect solution to all of my problems, and I no longer had to worry about the low humidity. I just wish I discovered this sooner.
