Using Any Of These 9 Simple Tricks Will Help You Stay Warm This Winter
If your thermostat is locked, put something frozen on top of it so it thinks the room is colder than it is. If you do this, you’ll want to use something like a plastic-wrapped ice pop that won’t cause moisture to get into the thermostat.
Fill empty soda bottles with hot water and keep them under the covers with you. Not only is this a cheap way to keep yourself warm, it also allows you to save some money by turning your thermostat down at night.
Exercising will make you feel warmer in seconds, but also ensure that your body is doing what it should to keep yourself warm when you’re not active.
Instead of letting the heat from your hot shower go down the drain, keep the water in the tub until it becomes room temperature. This will help keep your place warm and add much-needed humidity.
Preheat your bed with an electric blanket so your covers are nice and warm by the time you’re ready to sleep.
You can also use an electric blanket to warm your clothes before you put them on and face the brutal outdoors.
If you don’t have a coffee maker that already has an outlet timer, buy one and set it so you have fresh, hot coffee to wake up to each morning.
Fill a long sock with uncooked rice and put it in the microwave. This will give you a nice and warm heat pad that you can use over and over again.
