In fact, it was a favourite of the Roman Emperor Nero and it was served to Roman army camps.

Another way to keep yourself busy throughout the winter months is to find some exciting games to play. It does not matter whether it is a game for your smartphone or games console, there are so many different options to choose from, and so you should have no trouble finding something new and exciting to check out.

Strike up chats on forums
You can enrich your knowledge and strike up good conversations by contributing in forums. Of course, you will already be well aware that there are gaming forums. Do you contribute to these? Not only that but you have forums for literally anything nowadays, from money saving forums to parenting forums, so you are bound to find a number of different platforms that appeal to you and give you the information you need.
Work on growing your reach on Twitter
Whether you run your own gaming blog, have an online store, you are simply doing a bit of personal branding, winter is as good as time as any to dedicate some more hours to Twitter. Here are some tips: make an effort to promote your own Twitter profile across different platforms. You should also make sure your posts are engaging and don’t start them with @username. If you do this, people will only be able to see those Tweets if you have mutual followers, and so you are limiting their visibility.
In addition to this, use three tweets per hashtag at the maximum and strike up relations with others in the industry. The gaming community is very active on Twitter, so you are bound to find lots of great accounts you can strike up connections with. The same goes for any sort of industry you operate in. In addition to this, don’t go over promotional. You need to avoid tweeting about yourself excessively. You also need to make sure you follow relevant accounts.
Tackle those tasks you have been putting off all year – Is there a cupboard in your house you have been meaning to sort out all year? Maybe you are yet to update your passwords online? Whatever it is, tackle those tasks you keep putting off! They may not be fun, but you’ve got to do them at some point.
Hopefully, you now feel like you have plenty of ideas to keep you busy and cure any boredom you may be experiencing while the weather is cooler. From trying your hand at a bit of cooking to downloading a new game, there are lots of fun and exciting ways you can pass the time during winter.
