Posted on February 26 2021
It’s that time of year again when the days are short, the nights are long and the annual cold snap is in full force.
Most parts of the country have seen at least some snow over the past fortnight and with the cold, icy mornings here to stay for the next few weeks at least, it can be tricky to keep warm without cranking up the heating.However, there are several things you can do to stay feeling nice and toasty without bumping up your heating bill, so read on for some simple advice on the natural ways to stay warm this winter.
WHY KEEPING WARM IS IMPORTANTStaying warm, particularly in winter, is important for several reasons.
It can aid sleep and relaxation, boost your mood and help your body burn calories faster. It’s also essential for maintaining better overall health and wellbeing.
At this time of year, it’s essential you stay protected against a drop in temperature.
Cold weather can affect your body’s ability to fight off viruses and infections.
This is especially important if you are aged 65 or over or have any underlying health issues, as some viruses are more dangerous for people with poor immune system health.
And if you are continually feeling cold despite your best efforts to stay warm, it might indicate a deeper health problem.
Poor circulation, liver, kidney or thyroid problems, diabetes, Vitamin B-12 deficiency and anaemia can all result in you feeling cold all the time.
Also, if you’re underweight or suffer from eating disorders, your body might not be getting the nutrition it needs to keep your body warm and replenish your natural fat stores.
So, if you have always got the shivers, or your fingers and toes often feel cold and tingly, it’s worth getting a check-up from your GP just to make sure nothing is amiss with your overall health.
