Here’s one of the most hated questions ever: “Is it cold enough for you?”

 .

Ugh!!

 ,

This winter season has been a real doozy!! Snowstorm after snowstorm, wind that’s usually reserved for March, and temperature well into the negative digits, some days it’s a huge challenge to stay even remotely warm. In fact, in my town today the high is only 11 degrees!

And I’m not just talking about being outdoors, but indoors as well. Older homes and commercial buildings are still carrying the insulation standards of decades’ past. With this being one of the fiercest winters in years, home and business owners everywhere are just realizing that their structures could use a major weatherization upgrade. This means that it may be just as cold—if not colder—inside as much as it is outside.

Sooooooo…..how does all of this being cold affect your health? Is it the actual temperature of your surroundings that makes you sick? If it’s cold in your home, office, or school, can you get sick that way, or is it only if you’re outside? And when you’re outside during the cold winter months, is all of that ‘bundling up’ really necessary, will you be just fine without it? Most of all, if winter is your favorite season and you love the cold, what measures can you take to reduce the chances of getting sick?

As you see, the very best way to enjoy winter weather without getting sick is with adequate clothing to keep you warm. When selecting coats, shoes, hats, gloves, and the like for purchase, double-check to ensure they are as weatherproof as possible. You can also invest in weather wraps that are specially-designed to go over your coat. Keeping a large insulated thermos with a hot beverage with you at all times also helps. For feet, try using large sandwich bags over your socks to keep your feet comfortable (trust me: it works!).

Last but not least, dress in multiple layers and keep your face covered as much as possible.

I’ve gotta be honest with you: I personally cannot stand being cold – at all!! Even though I was born and raised in the Midwest, winter season has never been my cup of tea. Add to that I am very prone to getting seasonal colds anyway, what you have is a situation that is screaming disaster!! 😀 With each and every passing day, I am seriously considering a move to Miami! 😀 Until then, I’ll just keep the thermal underwear, hot tea and cocoa, and space heaters on stand-by until Spring! However, I have lots of friends and family members who believe that winter is the best season ever. With the low-digit temperatures continuing, I’m sure they plan to enjoy every moment–while keeping their fingers crossed that illness doesn’t greet them in the process.
