Tired of clenching? Keeping warm both inside and out
Do you almost always freeze no matter what the weather? You know how vexing it is. But now you can afford to get warm easily and quickly with a down jacket inside. And the tips we’ve gathered here.
Before You Leave
- The best way to stay warm is to dress for the weather. It’s granny-like, but it works.
- Check the weather forecast in the morning, and if it’s cold, dress accordingly:
- Are You Afraid of Wool Scratching? Don’t worry, you can get wool underwear with a cotton lining so the wool doesn’t itch. In general, wool outperforms cotton and synthetic fabrics in terms of warmth.
- Neck warmer: No matter how many layers you wrap around you, your neck can easily freeze. Normal scarves aren’t always enough to keep out the wind, so invest in a nice neck warmer instead.
Wear a hat! Your head loses up to 90% of your body heat.
Watch out for exposed areas: The wind can sneak in if you don’t prepare beforehand. It’s not smart to show a piece with a mustache when polar bears could live in your backyard. Instead, wear long gloves, leg warmers, and undershirts.
Overdress in the Morning
The wardrobe is far away at school or work, so dress too warmly rather than too warmly to avoid freezing all day. If it gets too hot, you can always remove a layer.
Two winter boots: If you wake up with shaggy feet, you’ll be cold all day. Then keep two pairs of winter boots by the door: one thick, waterproof pair for snowy days and one smart, warm pair for everyday cold.
Helping the Heat Outside
Are you usually cold? Maybe you’re out of shape. Exercise and movement can help your body stay warm. That is, another reason to get to know the gym better.
Your lungs produce moist, warm air, so if you don’t have a hand warmer, you can use your own built-in radiator. Breathe lightly on your hands to warm them – lungs produce dry, cold air. If you prefer the warmth around your face, pull the scarf up around your mouth.
Also, if you start to freeze, get inside as soon as possible. And never, ever, ever fall asleep in the cold, even if you’re exhausted.
When You’re Chilled Inside
Eat and drink: Eating and drinking uses energy and increases metabolism. It also means you get hot, like an engine when it starts. If you want to get really warm, you can eat chili or drink hot tea or coffee. Why not try this recipe?
Close your windows and check for drafts. If you have old windows, the heat can easily escape and you can freeze even if you have lit radiators.
Rubber seals on windows may help alleviate the situation. Look for it in your letter slot or under the front door. A cloth can easily be stuffed into the crack.
Start with a heating pad: A heating pad can keep you warm for several hours. Use a hot water bottle to your advantage. Just boil some water and pour it into the can. If it doesn’t come with a cover, wrap it in a towel to avoid getting burned.
Light lots of candles: Do you lack a wood stove or fireplace? Suk! But a lot of candles can still warm a room. Even though a tealight’s flame is small, it still matters, especially if there are many.
Then the candles are great! Keep in mind that if you have a lot of lights on, there should be some airflow to avoid carbon dioxide poisoning. Light, like you, needs oxygen, so don’t deprive it.
