It seems that every year, winters get colder and longer, leaving us all looking for ways to connect with our “inner cozy” and stay warm for those harsher months. If you’re struggling to find a guidebook on how to keep warm, you’re in the right place. Not only can being too cold for prolonged periods of time cause health issues, but it can be mentally and emotionally draining, too. Putting your heat on full blast constantly isn’t always the answer either -- read below to figure out how to keep warm naturally.

How to Stay Warm in the Winter

  • Become an Expert with Layers

Though layering can be an essential fashion technique, we’re not even talking about the fashionable kind of layering here. We’re talking about the “stay warm through the winter” layering. Throw a thermal layer underneath your clothes, then add jackets, a coat, and a hat when needed.

  • Use Humidifiers

Air with humidity will feel warmer than dry air of the same temp. This is a great, low-cost way to hack warmth in the winter. Be careful not to let your space get too humid and damp, though!

  • Opt for Warm Food and Drink Options

Save popsicles and smoothies for the summer, and instead, over-index on soups, casseroles, and warm drinks. These options have great health benefits and if you keep food warm, you’ll stay even warmer.
