Every winter people are traditionally divided into those who are cold and those who ask to open the window because of the heat. But what to do if warm clothes don’t keep you warm and the weather outside doesn’t at all resemble the hot summer in Cuba?
What if I’m always freezing?
First of all, you should consult a doctor to identify possible problems with the vascular system. If there is nothing wrong, the following tips can help you feel better:
- Add oatmeal, fatty fish, fruits, vegetables, and healthy oils to your diet;
- Establish a drinking regimen;
- Reduce your stress levels;
- Cut down on cigarettes (cigarette smoke slows blood circulation);
- strengthen yourself.
How to get warm outdoors
During the cold season, the problem of how not to freeze at minus 30 or at least just how to freeze less becomes relevant. We have collected a few tried and tested best practices:
- dress in several layers of clothing, choose warm shoes and gloves;
- move – you can not stand in one place for a long time;
- buy tea or coffee;
- use a thermos to keep drinks hot longer;
- use an electric heating pad.
How to stop shivering in the cold indoors
In winter, you can get cold not only outside, but also indoors. If you come in from the cold or are just freezing at home, the following tips are perfect for you.
- change your clothes (you can leave them near the radiator in advance);
- eat a snack (the body can use new calories for thermoregulation);
- use an electric blanket, heating pad, or hot water bottle to warm the bed;
- stretch or do some exercise.
What to Drink to Stay Cold
To get warm, it is recommended to drink hot drinks: tea, coffee, hot compotes and morsels, honey, ginger, and lemon-based drinks. In winter, mulled wine is very popular for warming up. However, medics do not recommend using alcoholic beverages to warm up. Alcohol dulls the sense of perception and danger. In addition, your body will use up more heat than when you are sober.
