First Signs That Winter Is Coming
A long,boring and freezing Winter is on the way. Just a thought of Winter is freezing your thoughts.What to do all Winter and how to keep warm?
You often wonder what to do with yourself besides reading and working on your blog. Well, there are many Winter activities you can attend to. Do a little research in your home town to see the offerings, so you can be active no matter the freezing weather and try to stay active.
But,before you decide what to do,while you are at home, there are few small tricks that can keep you warm.
Hot And Cold Showers
When you are showering, you know that hot water immediately warms you up, but cold shower improve blood circulation. If not so cold water,at least make it mild. Cold showers are also correlated with a stronger immune system. It really sounds silly showering with hot and mild warm water,but the feeling of freshness and warmth afterwards isn’t replaceable with anything.
After having such spa treatment at home,build up layers on you. Warm clothes,thick socks,couple of blankets and hot tea in your hand. You won’t miss surely! And if you have your babe next to you…EVEN BETTER!
Check your windows if they are wind proof. If you are living in an old building, for sure windows will be drafty. If you are lucky to have double windows, put in between towels so the draft won’t be bothering you. The same stands for drafty doors.
Try to keep the heat in and cold out by cutting a pool noodle in half lengthwise, wrapping it in fabric, and sliding it under your door. It’ll stay put all winter. But we recommend to change the drafty apartment if not buying a new “under draft proof door”.
Use The Thermostat
Before leaving your home for work or else, you can program your thermostat, so on your return you won’t be freezing at home. The technology went so far these days,that you can do it from your smartphone directly.
Dress Up The Windows
If you don’t have curtains on your windows, maybe it’s time to think in putting them. Not only your apartment will look nicer and cozier, but it will feel warmer too. They will block small wind drafts entering.
Food Making Fun
If your life wish was to be a pastry chef, now is time to learn how to be and show off. You can spend the day in your kitchen, baking your favorite pastries,or cooking your indulging meals and sharing them with invited friends. The party will be even better.
Position Of Your Bed
The position of your bed is important in many ways. One of them is not to put your bed directly against an exterior wall since you’ll be freezing at night. Move it away a little bit. You’ll be warmer if you leave a little space.
And how about blankets? Well the best ones are made of microfiber or pure wool . So,it is a good idea if you don’t have such,to go to the nearest Mall and buy some.
And finally you can enjoy all Winter without of fear of being freezing in your home!
