BEST WAYS AND WINTER GEAR TO KEEP WARM THIS WINTER SEASON:
Winter is here and we are not ready for it. According to researchers, we will be experiencing the coldest temperatures ever recorded in US history. When we aren’t worrying about shoveling snow off our driveways or hoping for snow days, we’re worrying about keeping ourselves or children warm. Here are some ideas and winter gear to keep warm during this winter season:
- Layers on layers on layers
Pile on those base layers to lock in warmth when you hit the outdoors. Try wearing t-shirts or long sleeves under your outfit. Then add on a thermal long sleeve, thermal sweater, padded jacket, and a big winter coat on top of that. For bottoms, you could wear long underwear, leggings, and winter pants. The more layers, the better. You could also use long sleeves that are made for locking in your body heat or have thermal interiors. Point is, just bundle up!
- Drink hot fluids
If you ever needed an excuse to drink more coffee, here it is. Drinking hot fluids like tea, coffee, or even soup can help keep your body temperatures warm when you’re cold. The most essential winter gear you could have is a bubi bottle. Fill up your bubi bottle to take your beverage on-the-go! Drink coffee or tea without the worry about spilling it all over yourself. Bubi Bottles are equipped with a splash guard to prevent liquids coming at you too fast.
- Got cold feet?
Did you know that cold hits your hands and feet first? During your winter walks, make sure you’re equipped with a good pair of winter gear: gloves and socks! Thermal socks will help keep your feet both dry and warm when treading through snow. Gloves will also keep your hands warm (obviously) and decrease your chances of getting a cold. Besides gloves and socks, make sure you have a good pair of waterproof or insulated shoes too.
- Keep your hot compress close & your Bubi Bottle closer
Besides being a great water bottle, you can use a Bubi Bottle as a hot compress to keep warm. Fill up your bubi with hot water and place it near your stomach or by your feet when going to bed. You can also fit it in your pocket to keep your hands warm when you go outdoors!
- Start your New Year’s Resolution (at least for now)
Squeezing in a quick work out can help you sweat it out when your body is getting too cold. Even when you’re sitting on the couch for too long, just get up and be active around the house to get your blood flowing and help warm you up.
