Weather can sure affect a holiday or work trip, especially in January when it gets colder. Here are some useful tips on keeping warm in this cold period.
Go to bed warm
Warmth originates from within, any insulations is merely concerned with keeping it there. So take a nice warm bath before snuggling under a duvet with a preferably higher tog count.
Layer like you mean it
This is a habit most people have already adopted but not everyone gets it right – you can be warm without looking like you gained 10 pounds in material. We wear Uniqlo’s Heattech under our jumpers, or grab some tights that are fleece-lined to wear under your jeans. These are life-savers without all the thickness (excellent as well when packing your suitcase for a winter holiday)
Hot Beverages (not booze!)
Hot soups, teas and coffees will help warm your body so get a thermos flask to carry around. Note that alcoholic beverages reduce your body temperature – not the best to keep warm.
Electric Hot Water bottles are mini life savers
If you’re travelling, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to pack your favourite electric blanket. This is when your electric hot water bottle comes in handy, this handy thing charges in an instant and can warm up a whole bed. This is also a lot more convenient than filling up a regular hot water bottle!
