In most of the United States, January and February are absolutely freezing cold months. The dead of winter is upon us, and unfortunately there’s nothing you can do about it. Besides move to Southern California or Florida, of course :)
But for those who can’t migrate like a bird each winter, you have to get clever when it comes to staying warm. Sure you can dress in layers, stay indoors, and put on the heat, however, don’t you want to have a little more fun than that?
Here’s a list of the 5 best life hacks for staying warm this winter!
Ice. It may sound counterintuitive, but you can use ice to stay warm. How? Put it under your thermostat to trick your heating system into turning back on. Now that’s cold..
Warm Up Your Clothes. Dressing in layers is all well and good, but throw your clothes in the dryer for 30 minutes before going out!
Hug Your Laptop. Finally endlessly browsing the internet and binging Netflix on your laptop will yield a new benefit! When your laptop gets warm from usage, cuddle and take that warmth right back! Just make sure it isn’t too hot..
Hairdryer. Hairdryers have always felt they can do so much more than dry hair. Turns out they were right! Use it to dry your body, clothes, sheets, etc!
Use Your Mind. Your brain is powerful. Use it to think of warmer times and warmer places, and you may just feel the slightest bit warmer.
