Tips To Stay Warm During Holidays

Posted: Updated:

This winter-like chill is sticking around for a few days, so the experts at Good Health Magazine put a list together of some things you can do to help you feel warmer.

First, reach for a nice, hot, decaf cup of coffee or tea. Experts say that caffeine blocks receptors in the blood vessels, and prevents them from getting smaller in the cold. That could lead to you losing body heat faster.

This next tip might go against your instincts, but don't put your hands in your pockets when you're outside.

Experts say that swinging your arms, like you normally do, gives your muscles a work-out and improves blood flow, which helps generate body heat.

Finally, go out and socialize! Researchers at the University of Toronto found that people who hibernate alone at home often feel colder than they would if they were out with friends.
