In the past few years, I have really started to feel the cold.
It's an odd feeling for me to not be able to deal with cold weather. As it was never something that bothered me in my younger years.
One of the hardest things is my body is unable to regulate its temperature. So if I'm cold I just keep getting cold or if I'm hot well it just keeps on going up.
Over the past couple of years, I've come up with all sorts of ways to try and keep myself feeling warm and cosy at least while I am inside; from layers of blankets to hot waters bottles and extra layers.
So, with the word snow being whispered across the UK, I thought now was a good time to bring up some of those ideas with you. In the hopes, we can all be a little cosier this winter.
Cosy nights in front of the TV or with a good book can bring up a great time to cuddle up with the family, huddle under some blankets and feel warmer.
It not only allows you to spend quality time with loved ones but allows you, to not have to turn the heating up another notice – win, win!
This is one I struggle with as some days moving at all just isn't on the cards.
However, it is 100% true, you are going to feel colder just sat around than if you are up and moving.
So, if you're feeling the chill and have some jobs that could be done, jump up and get working on them to help make you feel warmer.
Think About Accessories and Furnishings
Blankets, cushions and hot water bottles all come in as obvious accessories and furnishings we should think about when it comes to staying warm.
But how about your curtains? They can actually help keep warmth in the home, however, if they hang over your radiators, they may be doing the exact opposite!
So, make sure they are the correct length to help keep your home warmer.
Making sure you close doors around the home can really help keep the heat in.
Making this a really simple technique that can help us all.
After all, it is so much easier to heat one room than the whole house. While draughts and coldness are kept well out in the areas you hopefully aren't using.
Play with Scents
Scent can play with how we feel in the home, so introduce scents to help uplift you. Candles or items such as the Scentsy Go can really help change the mood.
With Christmas on its way, there are some really great winter scents to play with such as cinnamon, gingerbread and spiced apple.
The choice is really yours.
So, there you have some ideas on ways to help bring a snug and warm environment into your home.
However, what about you, what is your favourite way to make sure you stay feeling cosy?
