Feeling chilly? Don’t jump straight for the thermostat dial. Instead, follow these hot tips to warm up and get cozy without making the planet pay the price.
- Snuggle into an extra layer and some thick socks.
- Embrace the oversized scarf fashion trend.
- Get your blood flowing by jumping up and down for a minute to warm yourself up.
- Embrace your inner-Brit and go for high tea.
- Book an energy audit with the Resort Municipality of Whistler to find out where to seal in your warmth.
- Consider closing your windows and curtains at night. Windows can leak about 25% of your home’s heat.
- Install window treatments to capture and retain heat in your home.
- Reverse your ceiling fan circulation to blast hot air down instead of sucking it up.
- If you must light a fire, make sure your wood is dry.
- Find a cuddle buddy.
Temperature variations are a natural part of life, and a fit and healthy body should be comfortable enough without excessive artificial heating or cooling.
