This ridiculously cold weather is enough to freeze even the biggest winter lovers, but making your day a little warmer is pretty easy. Here are a few things you can do to help keep yourself warm throughout the day.

1 - Warm Beverages

Coffee, hot chocolate, tea... whatever. Warm beverages not only warm your insides up, but any time your hands get cold you can just hold on to the cup. It's a win-win.

2 - Keep Moving

Getting up and moving around is always important, especially if you're sitting down most of the time at work or at home. The last thing anyone wants to do when they're cold is move, but getting up and walking around will help warm you up. You have to get that blood flowing!

3 - Have Extra Hoodies And Sweatshirts

Okay, so that's an easy one but honestly, how many times do you actually remember to bring them. If you've got a place in your office or workspace where you can keep them, perfect! If not, I usually set an extra hoodie next to my purse, so I remember to bring it with me.

4 - Soup For Lunch

Hot food is always good when you're cold. Stick to something like soup, though. The warm broth is always good to warm you up (and make you feel good). Yes, getting fries and a burger is hot food, but it won't warm you up the same. Soup and other hot liquids stay warmer longer inside your stomach, as compared to solid foods.

5 - Grab A Hat

Most of the heat in your body escapes from your head, so if you're really freezing throw on a hat. It's crazy how much of a difference just putting on a hat can make. Try it out some time.


And if you're still cold just remember, spring is next month. We are getting closer to warmer weather - and if that doesn't warm up your soul a little bit... I don't know what will!
