With winter well under way, you might be thinking how to fight off that chilly feeling.
While heaters do help out, it can often leave you with a high energy bill and possibly make you feel a little to warm for comfort.
Here are some natural things you can do to help you warm up:
1. Cover the floors
It can be a chore to constantly have to put on a fresh pair of socks.
The cold can still seep through a cosy pair of socks. To combat this you can cover up cold floors around the home, it's especially useful for cold bathroom floors!
2. Comforting drinks
Drinking something warm is an obvious tool to overcome the chill. It helps raise the core temperature of the body and provides temporary comfort for our hands.
It may be an obvious choice, but it’s important to not overdo it as you can sweat and produce more sweat, which then eventuates in feeling more cold.
3. Bring back the hot water bottle
Tucking into bed and getting cosy can be an effort during the winter season.
A quicker way to feel the warmth is to use a hot water bottle.Simply place it between your sheets for a few hours and you’re ready to go.
4. Get physical
Winter can be off putting when it comes to doing exercise or hitting the gym.
It’s best to power through it and keep up your physical exercise. Not only does it increase your heart rate, it also helps keep you from becoming a hermit.
Your body temperature rises when exercising, providing all the natural comfort you need.
5. Keep yourself occupied
Get your mind off the cold and rug up with a movie or TV series.
You could even go a step further and practice knitting by knitting your very own winter warmers to rug up with. Start by getting your very own knit kit from BHG Shop!
6. Natural light
Rather than embrace the doom and gloom, you can actually warm up your house by using nature's very own heater, sunlight!
Simply open you curtains whenever the sun is shining and feel the beautiful warmth.
7. Seal your doors
