All across the country there has been an arctic chill that has many cities and towns stuck with temperatures in the single digits or lower. Obviously, when it’s that cold outside you have no other option but to turn up the heat, at least for a little while. However, there are other ways to keep yourself warm during this cold streak. Below are just a few ways you can stay warm without cranking the heat all day.
“Toss a Log on the Fire”- If you happen to have a fireplace in your home, turn down your heat, and instead warm up next to a nice fire.
“A Hot Beverage”- You can warm yourself up with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
“Cover Drafts”- Block drafts coming into your home through windows and doors with a draft stopper, weather stripping, or even a towel.
“Switch Your Sheets”- If you’re using regular sheets on your bed try switching to flannel. If you’re using a regular comforter try switching to down.
“Let the Sunshine In”- Open your shades during the day and let some sun in your home. Not only will it help warm the place up, but it’s good for the mind.
“Stay Active”- Activities like, exercising or cleaning the house are great ways to stay warm while being productive.
