Your mittens are your best friend.
You should wear mittens in the winter. Even if you are convinced that gloves are the best way to keep your hands warm, mittens are one of the most effective ways to stay warm in colder weather. You’ve probably heard that mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves, but why is this?
One of the reasons that mittens keep your hands warmer is because they prevent heat from escaping at the edge of your fingers. When wearing gloves, it takes longer for your fingers to warm up because there’s a gap between each finger where heat can escape. If you’re wearing mittens and start feeling cold, you can even put on some thin gloves underneath for extra warmth! Mittens also are better for children to wear because they are easier for them to use when playing outside in cold weather.
Mittens come in a variety of colours and patterns, so you can find ones that match any outfit! They’re great accessories for keeping hands warm while walking outside or building snowmen during a snowy winter day!
Avoid wearing wet socks.
When you’re out in the cold, be sure to pay attention to whether or not your socks are wet. If so, change them as soon as possible! It is said that wearing wet socks can lead to frost bite. When you keep your feet warm and dry, it is much easier for your whole body to stay warm. Cold weather should be fun! Don’t let something like wet socks ruin your day.
Wear layers of clothing.
Using layers of clothing to keep warm can be a great way to stay comfortable no matter what kind of weather you find yourself in. A base layer will wick away moisture and keep you dry while other layers help retain your body heat. You can adjust your outfit by adding or removing layers depending on how warm you are. If you start to sweat, it’s easy to take a shirt off and put it back on when the sun goes down.
If you’re cold, don’t hesitate to plug in a space heater!
- Winter means you’ll be using a lot more electricity than usual. When you’re buying your space heater, do the math to make sure that it won’t give you an exorbitant electric bill.
- Don’t place your space heater near water or other liquids. Keep things like drapes and clothes away from your space heater to avoid a fire hazard.
- Before plugging in your space heater, check it for dust and dirt buildup (you can use a vacuum cleaner to remove this buildup). Use a damp cloth or paper towel to remove any grime caught on the body of the heater.
- Space heaters usually have one-year warranties, meaning that they should be replaced every year if you want them to work effectively.
- Store your unused space heaters in their original packaging so they don’t get damaged while not in use. Space heaters are typically made out of plastic and metal components that are sensitive to extreme temperatures and pressure and could break if not properly stored!
Exercise helps keep you warm.
As with many things in life, getting started is often the hardest part. But don’t let your initial resistance to get moving stop you from doing what’s best for yourself (and your body)! Once you start working out, it’s amazing how much more energy you’ll have. And we still haven’t even mentioned the fact that exercise burns calories, which can lead to weight loss and a better self-image!
Keep warm beverages around you at all times.
- Keep warm beverages around you at all times. A hot cup of tea, a mug of coffee, a thermos of hot chocolate—these are your friends when the temperatures dip. If you’re feeling adventurous and are over 21, some alcoholic drinks like toddies or mulled cider will also help you stay warm. Just be careful—alcohol can have a dehydrating effect!
- Eat lots of soup and other hot foods. It may sound obvious, but eating foods that are piping hot instead of room temperature will help keep your body temperature up even after they’ve gone down the hatch. Plus, they taste so good! But watch out: spicy food won’t actually make your body warmer–it just feels that way because it makes you sweat. That’s not what we’re going for here!
- Stay hydrated with water as much as possible. Dehydration is real and it can take a toll on your energy levels in harsh weather conditions—not to mention how sick it can make you feel if you let yourself get too dried out! Make sure that if you drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages (which have a dehydrating effect), to balance them out with 8 oz glasses of water regularly throughout the day.
Avoid being outside for longer than necessary.
- Avoid being outside for longer than necessary.
- If you have to go outside, plan your route and keep it as short as possible.
- If you go outside, don’t forget to take your phone and any other necessary items.
You can do something about it!
It is important to remember that, despite the dangers and annoyances of extreme cold, you can do something about it!
- Listen to the weather forecast. Check the television or radio for a weather forecast before going outside during cold winter months. Remember, a weather advisory means that severe weather conditions are imminent or already happening. If you have been advised not to drive in heavy snow or strong winds, don’t go out unless it is absolutely necessary. Pay attention to the wind chill factor as well; this will tell you how cold it feels when you add in the effect of wind on exposed skin. For example, if the temperature drops to −10°C but there is a wind speed of 30 km/h making it feel like -18°C outside, there is a risk of frostbite after 30 minutes of exposure without adequate clothing.
- Be prepared when travelling in case your car breaks down or if you get lost while hiking outdoors. Keep warm clothing and blankets (and food if needed) in your car at all times during winter. If you plan on spending hours outdoors doing things such as hunting or skiing, check with weather authorities first and be sure to dress appropriately for extreme temperatures (including bringing extra layers). Carry a cell phone with you at all times so that you can contact someone for help if need be. Do not take any unnecessary risks such as walking through deep snow-covered areas when there’s no one around who could possibly find and help you if necessary—do not ignore warning signs posted by local officials in these cases either!
- Never ignore symptoms related directly from hypothermia because this can lead to permanent disability – seek medical attention immediately! This includes numbness in hands/arms due to poor circulation caused by icy conditions (or lack thereof), feverish feelings due to shivering while being exposed outdoors without proper sheltering material like blankets etcetera.*

Winter is coming—and it’s going to be a cold one!
If you’re anything like us, winter is your favorite time of year. We love the cold weather and the chance to snuggle up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate.
But even more than that, we love winter because it’s the perfect time to show off our style. We don’t believe that just because it’s cold outside means you have to sacrifice your fashion sense. On the contrary, we think winter is the most fun time of year to get creative with your outfits. The only problem? Finding high-quality, affordable clothes that keep you warm without sacrificing your great sense of style.
This year, we’ve decided to do something about that: we’re starting this blog! Every week, we’re going to take some of our favorite looks (and some new ones) and show you how to keep warm in style this holiday season and beyond!
Winter is Coming!
It’s the dead of winter, and you’re stuck in your house, huddled under layers of blankets, hot water bottles, and electric blankets. It seems like it’s been dark for days, and the only things you have to look forward to are trying to read in the dim light of a lamp or drinking another cup of tea.
But did you know there are other ways to get cozy? Yes, really!
-Bundle up with all your favorite people—invite your entire family over and stream a movie together. Everyone can bring their favorite snacks, and you won’t have to worry about who needs to drive home after the movie ends.
-Wear a Snuggie. No one understands why they work so well, but they just do!
-Take a bath! A warm bath is an excellent way to warm up when winter has got you down. Throw in some Epsom salts and light a few candles for extra warmth and relaxation.
-Get outside! Head out into nature with a friend or loved one and take a long walk through the woods. Wear lots of layers so that you can stay warm during your adventure (and don’t forget your gloves!)
It’s getting cold out there! Before you snuggle into the couch with a nice warm mug of hot chocolate, make sure you’re ready to weather the season.
Let’s be real: winter can be hard. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s long. But winter doesn’t have to be all bad.
In this series of blog posts, we’ll go over some of our favorite tips and tricks for keeping warm during the cold months and making the most of your time indoors. We’ll cover everything from making your home cozier to picking out the right holiday pajamas.
Winter is coming.
You can feel it in the air: the chill, the slippery roads, the bite of wind on your cheeks. For many, winter is a time of hibernation, a time for hot drinks, cozy blankets, and staying indoors.
But for winter warriors like me—outdoor lovers who refuse to let Old Man Winter deter them from their favorite activities—the best way to survive winter is to stay active and prepared.
Not sure how to get started? Not to worry! I’ve compiled a list of my best tips and tricks for keeping warm in the coldest months.
A lot of us have been told that we need to “bundle up” when we go outside in the wintertime. But that advice often leads people to wear more layers than they actually need… which can be uncomfortable and impractical.
Instead of layering up on bulky sweaters and pants, instead opt for one well-insulated layer that traps heat close to your body; I recommend investing in a good down jacket or snow pants (or both!). You’ll be amazed at how much warmer you feel with one well-insulated outfit rather than five layers of sweaters and jeans. And speaking of jeans… ditch them!
The official start of winter is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to batten down the hatches and get ready for snow, ice, and dreary days spent shivering under a blanket.
We here at [blog name] wanted to turn getting ready for winter into a fun process instead of a chore. So we’re going to give you our best tips on how to make sure you have everything you need to stay warm in the coming months.
Our first tip is all about keeping your home warm without having to set up a wood stove or invest in a furnace. Did you know that your dog can help?
It’s true! A dog’s body temperature is higher than yours, so they actually generate heat. So just letting your dog sleep in your bed with you at night can keep you warm all night long. We recommend investing in an extra-large pet bed if you don’t share your bed with your furry friend already—that way they’ll be comfortable and you’ll be able to spread out on cold nights.
