Keeping warm on those cold cold days

Winter time can be pleasant for many. But at the same time we realize we miss the warmer days. Especially when night falls and the cold sets in. So with that in mind I am sharing a few tips to stay warm. But also safely warm.

If you are fortunate enough to have a fireplace dont be afraid to use it. Off course safety is important. So if you can not use it with safety then rather avoid that. Although I have to say I think that is one very cozy way to have the family together around a fireplace. Thinking of all those family movies that shows a very delightful time. Yes time spent well indeed.

Using a heater
If you feel it is a good to use a heater. Remember the three feet rule. Stay a distance away from it. And make sure that it isnt a hazard to your family or health either.

Electric blanket
I dont think there is anything quite as nice as getting into a warm bed on a cold evening. It is cost effective as most tend to save power in some way. But at the same time it can keep the chills away too. But do to take note of all the safety measures and precautions.

Dont forget to layer up
To wear an extra shirt or leggings is a good way to protect yourself from the cold weather. Consider gloves or mittens. If it is very cold use a hat also. Dont be too shy to think of winter socks. Nothing quite as painful as cold painful feet and toes.

Warmer foods
It is good to consider hot coffee or tea. Or hot chocolate drinks. As well as soup or spicy food to help keep you warm during those cold winter nights.

Alcohol is a no no
Yes I know some will say but,,, It feels warm. Sorry people the fact is that alcohol actually decreases your body's core temperature. A study done by Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine showed that your body loses the ability to shiver when drinking alcohol. Yes alcohol can make you sweat even when it is very cold. That obviously cools your core temperature too. So next time leave the alcohol and go for the hot drinks that will help you stay warm.

Layer your covers and blankets
Start with your cozy fuzzy and warm blankets first. And putting your thin dense blankets last to help  make sure that heat wont escape. Keeping your bed warm and cozy.

Bake and cook to your heart's content
Using the oven helps spread heat through out the house. Making it pleasant and warm.

Remember a warm bottle
Always a good idea to use a bottle to help keep cold weather away. If you don't have one. Take a two litre bottle that is rounded and nice. Like a Coke bottle. And fill it with hot tap water. Now use that. You will be surprised as it keeps you warm but at the same time it lasts for hours. I still do this every winter. Or even on cold days.

Staying dry
It is very important to stay dry if it is cold and rainy weather. So dont forget to use a raincoat or an umbrella. 

And one of my favorites.
If it is very cold outside and its just slowly crawling up your spine. Consider a nice warm bath. Nothing beats the chills quite like that. I dont think of showers when it is cold. I think of soothing warm baths. Where all that ice cold coolness is slowly drained and all that is left is a pleasant warm feeling from the bath

These are just a few simple ways to stay warm on cold days. But it is effective against freezing cold weather. Life is a learning process after all. Thanks for reading this article. I hope you found it helpful. I sure did. As it is winter and very cold here.
