you probably have water in the brake housings. use WD-40, preferably in a warm place, in the brake housing.

substitute lube with WD-40, which displaces water and shifter with brake

if they're really rusted, then it's probably better to just replace the cables all together.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
