Do you remember the times when your mother took care of you during winters?
I am sure you miss that time, even though you felt like a stuffed goat when she loaded you with hundreds of winter clothes.
But now that she is not close to you anymore, it is time for you to be self-dependent and take care of yourself. With the help of warm clothes, you can avoid catching a cold, shivering and falling ill during winter.
If you hate cold, you have landed on the right page. I don’t say that I dislike winters, but when I am freezing, I surely curse the weather. In order to avoid the harshness of the season, it is necessary for you to stay as warm as possible. However, just because it is snowing outside doesn’t mean you can’t leave your door. There are times when you have to get out of the comfort environment and atmosphere of your house and go out. This is the time when you need to wrap yourself in such a way that you are warm.
So what are the top five things that you need to wear in order to stay away from being frozen?
How can you possibly live without wearing gloves on your hands? There are a lot of glove manufacturing companies; all you need to do is find one that manufactures high quality warm gloves for customers. The best thing is that you can buy woolen hand-knitted gloves as well. Go ahead – flaunt a unique style on the roads by wearing beautiful hand gloves!
2. Winter caps.
You don’t have to wear monkey caps, which are quite embarrassing, but you can always wear head caps that look gorgeous and keep you warm. Even if you are playing basketball outside your house, make sure you cover your head with such a cap so that you are protected from the wind of the season. Remember what mommy always said about head caps?
3. Thermal soles.
It is rightly said that you have to focus on keeping your feet warm. I think I keep mentioning this in all the posts. If you want to keep yourself warm, you have to find ways to keep your feet warm. No matter how cold your nose is, your warm feet can keep you healthy. There are thermal soles available for those who keep shivering during winters.
4. An overcoat.
No matter how angry you are at someone in the house, DO NOT leave your door without your overcoat. You must know that your overcoat protects you from all the harshness you hate about winters. Protect yourself by wearing an overcoat and let the warmth spread.
5. Woolen scarf.
Ever seen hand knitted woolen scarves?
I love those. If you have a friend who makes such scarves, you can always request her to make one for you. If you know someone who sells such beauties, please know that they are worth investing money in. Plus, they keep you cozy and comfortable!

It’s winter! The snow is falling. There’s beautiful fairy lights twinkling around your Christmas tree. You’re at your desk and it’s going to be a long day. Maybe you’re working from home or maybe you’re playing the newest character on World of Warcraft. Whatever the purpose is, this blog will share some useful tips for staying warm… right at your own desk.
Wear three layers of clothing. Your hands need to stay warm while typing, so invest in some mittens as well. There are some great options out there, including USB-powered mittens that actually warm your hands as you type. There are also USB-powered blankets as well. Don’t forget about wearing socks. You can also attach a massager to your desk chair to help you relax while you’re getting work done AND heat up. What if you are extra techy? In this case, you can even purchase a heated mouse! These are all great options that will help you stay warm at your desk in no time.
A fun tip: even if it may be hot outside, if your workplace has air conditioning, try to grab a light cardigan just in case you get cold in the building.
Exercise at Your Desk
Some good exercises to do are jogging in place, doing a seated crunch and even using a fitness ball for your desk chair. Exercising heats up your body and will help you stay nice and warm. You will start feeling warmer and more comfy in no time. An added bonus? You’ll get some of your workout in AND get work done. It is a dream come true. Why not also get up from your desk and go for a brisk walk to get some fresh air? You can also climb some stairs to start exercising and warm up easily.
Drink and Eat Up!
Have some warm soup or indulge in that craving you’ve been having for the last week. This is the perfect time for you to grab a warm meal to enjoy at your desk. Having some hot tea or coffee will help you easily stay warm and be productive.
Invest in a Space Heater
A space heater can come priced as low as $25. You can keep one under your desk to stay extra warm.

It’s cold. You feel the familiar shivers on your back and that uncomfortable clammy feeling comes back. What do you do? The usual answer may be to turn on the heat. However, what if you’re on a budget and trying to save money for that new Xbox? This article will help you solve this dilemma by telling you some useful tips you can stay warm… on a budget!
Open the Windows
Open the windows in the morning to let the sun in and heat your room. How does this work? As light fills the room, its rays will bounce off the walls and furniture before turning into heat.
At night, though, opening the windows is the last thing you want to do. Invest in some thick curtains for your windows to block out the cold and prevent any precious warm air from escaping. You should be able to find some thick curtains at your local thrift store for a great bargain price as well!
Get Some Rugs
The thrift store can be a treasure trove of items that will help heat up your house at a low cost. Head to the thrift store or a local homeware store to purchase some rugs. If you have wooden floors, having those rugs can make all the difference and keep your feet nice and warm. Also, that extra layer will help insulate heat in your room creating another layer of insulation to keep the cold away.
Insulate Your Water Tank
According to energy.gov, you can reduce standby heat losses by a whopping 25% or 45% and save about 4% to 9% in water heating costs. This will pay for itself in the long-term!
If you like to bake or have an oven, you’re in luck! Baking is an affordable way for you to stay warm AND enjoy some delicious snacks. Baking will help fill your room with warm air. After you are finished baking, leave your oven door open to release some heat. However, take note of any children or pets around as well for safety reasons.

This article shares useful tips on how you can stay warm in the cold outdoors. Whether you are going outside for a walk, hanging out with your friends or doing outdoor activities, it’s important to know how to keep yourself warm and toasty. After all, nothing ruins a fun day like being cold and uncomfortable in the chilly weather.
TIP ONE: LAYER UP
The rule of thumb when it comes to spending a day outside is to wear three layers of clothing. There should be an inner layer, a middle insulating layer, and finally, your top layer. Also make sure to invest in a hat and some handwarmers as well. There are some great options for affordable, effective and non-harmful handwarmers which do not use harmful chemicals.
TIP TWO: MOVE AROUND
While you are outside enjoying your day, move frequently and continue pacing to keep yourself warm. When you feel an incoming cold, take a brisk walk to warm yourself up and keep the cold away. However, try not to do any vigorous exercise that will lead to sweating. Sweating will lead to trapped heat within your clothes and can make you uncomfortable!
TIP THREE: STAY HYDRATED
It should come as no surprise that dehydration becomes more likely when you are outside in dry and cold conditions. Bring some water with you to keep your body hydrated. Extra tip: sprinkle some sugar into your water for a quick burst of energy. By doing this, you will be able to enjoy a nice day outside whatever the weather is like.
TIP FOUR: EAT MORE BEFOREHAND
Make sure you eat sufficiently so that your body continues to stay nice and warmed up. After all, food is what fuels your body, and your body is what keeps you warm. Some good food options include food that are high in fat such as avocadoes. For a quick snack, bring bananas, chocolate and nuts. This way, you can enjoy a fun day and stay warm by staying full.
These are some of the helpful tips we have for you to stay warm throughout the day. They are all equally important tips that will help you enjoy a great day outside in cold weather.
