Tips for keeping warm this winter:

Tips for keeping warm this winter:

Everyone knows that when going out in cold weather, a sweater, jacket and other clothes should be added. You can also apply the same principles internally. The number of layers can isolate your body and make it easier to regulate your body temperature. You can add or remove layers as needed to stay comfortable.

Wear thick socks or slippers

Keeping your feet warm will make your whole body feel warm. For extra comfort, put on a pair of super warm wool socks. Or keep a pair of slippers or shoes to wear around the house.

Cooking with oven and stove continue reading below

Both the oven and the stove generate heat in your kitchen. This is why it is recommended to cook non-cooked and non-baked meals in the warmer months. But in colder months, the opposite advice applies: use stoves and ovens to heat your home frequently.

Let the oven open after baking

Every time you use the oven in colder months, turn it on after you finish baking. This will allow hot air to escape and add heat to the room. However, if you have children or pets, please exercise caution; make sure they cannot reach the hot oven door or inside of the oven.

Enjoy a cup of soup

In addition to warming your space, you can also warm yourself from inside. On cold days, choose a hot meal, such as a cup of soup. And consider making your own soup from scratch. It usually takes a while to cook the soup, and the simmering pot on the stove generates heat in the kitchen.

In addition to hot meals, you can also apply the same principles to warm yourself from the inside with the beverage of your choice. Keep coffee, tea, cider, hot cocoa or other hot beverages of yours handy, in case you feel cold. The liquid will feel scorched, and a hot cup is perfect for heating cold hands.

Use a humidifier to continue reading below

Humid air usually feels much warmer than dry air. Running heat in cold months can remove the humidity of the indoor air. To balance this, consider using a humidifier. Look for models that allow you to choose between warm air and cold air; they are usually more costly, but they are well worth the heating capacity.

It may seem counterintuitive to use a ceiling fan when you feel cold, but it can actually help you warm up. In cold months, let your ceiling fan rotate clockwise at a low speed. This will help push the warm air rising towards the ceiling back to the ground.

Heating pads are quite cheap, and they can have a huge impact when you feel cold. When you are sitting or lying down, use heating pads on your hands and feet to feel a lot warmer overall. You can even make a basic heating pad yourself by sewing dried beans into a 100% cotton fabric, and then you can microwave it in 30-second increments until it reaches the temperature you want.

Do not turn on the bathroom fan after showering

Because humidity makes the space feel warmer, do not use bathroom fans when showering. Then, leave the bathroom door open after showering so that the moisture will spread to other places in the house. However, if mold is prone to grow in your bathroom due to high humidity, please consider using a fan for at least a few minutes.
