How To Stay Warm Inside

  • 1. Layer your clothing so you can adjust for different environments. The most basic thing you can do to stay warm both inside and outside is to layer your clothing. Ask anyone who has lived in some of the colder parts of the world, like Alaska and Norway, and they’ll all tell you: wear layers. This lets you have one outfit for the day that adjusts easily for snowy weather outside, as well as switching over naturally to your toasty warm office.

      • An example outfit would include stockings, jeans, a long sleeve shirt, a button up shirt, a sweater, and a coat. With all of these things on, or a combination of these things on, you can easily adjust to a roaring hot classroom, an icy office, a neutral grocery store, and the freezing temperatures outside without any problem at all.

  • 2. Insulate your home. Make sure your home is as insulated as it can be. You might want to switch out the insulation in your walls or ceiling. You can also do more basic things, like putting up thick curtains and blankets over windows.
      • Cellular shades are actually pretty effective at keeping cold air from escaping a window and they're often cheaper than other curtain options.
        • You can also further insulate windows and any glass on doors with insulating film, a plastic material that is clear and adhered to all of the glass.

    1. 3. Close off unused rooms and focus on heating a central room. It is often easier and cheaper to focus on keeping one room warm than on keeping an entire apartment or house warm. Figure out a single room that your family can stick to during waking hours and seal it off from the rest of the house. Close doors and keep them covered in blankets. Centralize your heaters and other methods of warming the room. This saves you from having to put a lot of effort into keep rooms warm that you won't use very often.

  • 4. Seal gaps that let in cold air. You'll want to keep an eye out for holes and gaps that let cold air into your home or between rooms that have different levels of insulation. The most common example is the gap under doors, but you may also find some windows let in a draft or that rooms above a basement have cold air coming up through the floor.
        • Rolled up blankets and carpets can easily be used to plug these gaps.

  • 5.Prepare your bed. You'll probably want your bed to be at least a little warm before you crawl in to go to sleep. Those icy sheets are no-one's friend. There are lots of ways that you can get your bed ready before it's time to sleep. Try:
        • A hot water bottle, placed under the blanket at the lower center of the bed, or run your blanket through the dryer for 10-20 minutes on med or high heat.

  • 6. Bake cookies. Bake anything really. Your oven, when it's turned on and heated up to the usual baking temperature of around 365 degrees, can work really well to make the room that it's in nice and warm. Make the kitchen your weekend base of operations and hang out while cookies or a dinner roast is prepared.
        • Doing your laundry can similarly heat up nearby rooms. Make your chores count and be quick to do your laundry on really cold days. You can wear items fresh out of the dryer to get even warmer.

  • 7. Drink something hot. Whether it's a hot cup of lemon tea or a Mexican coffee, drinking a hot liquid can boost how warm you feel from the inside out. Turn the kettle on and then break out the mugs because you're about to get nice and warm.
        • You might think or have been told that adding alcohol to a hot drink will make you feel warmer, but that's not really the best advice. Alcohol actually lowers your body temperature, even though it gives you that "burning" feeling. If it's dangerously cold in your home, you should avoid alcohol.

  • 8. 
    1. Take a hot shower or bath. A hot shower or bath can be just enough to get your body back to a reasonable level of warmth. Find yourself just getting cold again after five minutes? Make sure you're bundling up as soon as you get out, with warm house clothes, a robe, and house shoes. This will help your body retain the heat of the bath.
