4 Ideas For a Safe and Comfortable Winter SeasonJanuary 19, 2018 / byHealthier Societies / Categories : Lifestyle
The holiday season is over in the U.S. and you want to start your year right. But you’re too lazy to move because of the freezing temperature that will last for a couple of months. Keeping yourself warm is important for you to avoid common health issues and to make yourself productive this winter.
Here are some of the things you can do to brave freezing temperatures.
Encourage yourself to do physical activities like exercises
Working out at home could be ideal but it may not work if you’re too lazy to get out of the bed. Some people inspire themselves to exercise by enrolling at a fitness studio for women in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Doing so could also help you shed off that extra weight you gain during the holidays.
Insulate yourself by wearing extra clothing
Preserve body heat by wearing long and extra thick undergarments before wearing your clothes for the day this winter. Earmuffs, padded head apparel, foot and hand covers are worth considering.
Insulating yourself not only keeps you warm, but it will also protect your skin from frostbites.
Consider getting yourself accustomed to cold weathers
This could be a weird idea to consider but some research suggests that heat-releasing brown fats in humans and animals could be induced by exposing your body to cold environments.
Small babies and hibernating mammals don’t easily shiver because of the increased brown fats in their body.
Steer clear of your favorite alcoholic beverage
Consuming alcoholic beverages could be the worst thing that you can do to warm yourself. Essentially, alcoholic drinks cause your body temperature to drop as it alters your body’s capability to stay warm.
Sure, alcoholic beverages also induce sweating but it will only keep you cold.
Keeping yourself warm this season is important for you to avoid health problems like hypothermia and frostbites. Consider doing the above ideas to start the new year right.
