5 Science-Backed Ways to Keep You Warm Through The Winter
Scientifically proven ways to keep you warm!
Warm yourself first.
It's easier to change your body temperature than the room temperature, not to mention more eco-friendly!
Turn on the ceiling fan.
Warm air rises to the ceiling. Run your fan on its lowest setting to push the warm air back down where you can feel it.
Layer your bed covers with the densest ones on top.
Fluffy blankets should be closest to your skin, placing dense blankets on top prevent heat loss.
Wear a hat - yes, even indoors!
You can lose heat from any surface that's exposed. So put on a hat, even if you're inside.
Know your risks and avoid alcohol.
Drugs to treat high blood pressure can make you more sensitive to the cold. Alcohol is absolutely the worst thing to consume if you are already cold because it drops the core body temperature.
