Boring phrases need not to be boring, Like "I am cold" do something better like this;
As I walked outside into the frigid winter air, I lost my breath. The cold has entered my lungs and stole all of my breath and was left speechless, I had to stop and sit down to steal back my breath. After sitting down my face felt like it was dying. The cold had slapped my face and was sassy about it. But I eventually got up and ran into the warmth again.
