I live in an apartment which has central heat and air through vents in my ceiling. It doesn’t matter what temperature I keep it on during winter (usually 75-76, I chill easily) as soon as the heater turns off, my legs and feet feel chilled. There are several ways I’m combating that after chill and hopefully my tips will help you out as well.
After Christmas, it seems as if everyone is marking their throw blankets down. I stock up on them for little to nothing and when I’m sitting, I wrap my legs in a throw. There are also cute RG Fishtail Bed Blanket Sleeping Bags Mermaid Tail that can be purchased if you’d prefer to slide your legs into a blanket lounging around. This is Abby and Alyssa’s favorite choice of blankets to stay toasty warm on cold days.
Drinking hot beverages warm us up inside and out. As a child, my dad always made homemade hot chocolate during the cold winter months and I do that now for my own family. While I still enjoy a cup of homemade hot chocolate, I’m a big Starbucks fan so I always pick up a box of Starbucks Classic Hot Cocoa when I go shopping. When I need a pick me up on dark and dreary days, I enjoy a little me time with a good book and my Starbucks cocoa.
Making soup is good for the soul. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a nice homemade pot of chicken or turkey noodle soup. I always pick up several turkeys after the holidays when they’ve marked them down because it’s a meat that the whole family enjoys (oh noes, now I’m craving a turkey sandwich). There are tons of recipes that turkey can be used in.
I’ve always used ceramic heaters near my legs and feet while I’m working on the computer. My desk is near a window and just looking outdoors makes me chilly. I use an Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater (plus fan) with a remote so I can adjust the temperature and settings without having to get up and down to do so. These heaters put out way more heat than I anticipated, have a slim design so they don’t take up much room and I absolutely love mine.
It probably goes without saying that a hot bath is a quick way to warm your body temperature. Because of my aches and pains, I probably get more baths daily during the average person and it’s wonderful how relaxed and warm I feel after soaking with my favorite scented bath products. Keep my hair dry is another way I stay warm. As soon as I’m dried off after my bath, I dry my hair. It doesn’t take long to dry your hair if you have a good Ceramic Hair Dryer. I always try to get a name brand hair dryer simply because they last longer, therefore it saves me money in the long run.
Do you have any tips on how to stay warm indoors during frigid temperatures you’d like to share? I’d love to read about them in my comment section.
