Are you always cold? Here are some proven ways to keep your feet (and body) warm.
- First, the obvious - wear warm socks or slippers. These items were made to help keep you warm and dry. Just make sure you can wiggle your toes freely. Cutting off circulation to your toes can make them cold.
- Take a warm bath or use toe warmers or heated insoles. Need a little extra heat? Warmers can give you that quick relief.
- Eat heart-healthy foods, such as fish, nuts, fruits, and veggies. These foods boost circulation, which improves blood flow and helps regulate your body temperature.
- Sleep with socks on. Not only does this help warm you up, but you will also sleep better. Say goodbye to restless nights.
- Choose certain spices when cooking. Black pepper, cinnamon, cayenne, ginger, horseradish, and garlic can all help warm you up.
- Sip on warm liquids like tea, hot cocoa, or coffee. They give you instant warmth just by holding the warm cup and by putting something warm in your tummy. But be sure to avoid the caffeine. Caffeine constricts blood vessels, which makes you feel cold.
- Get some exercise. Whether you go to the gym or just do some simple movements, exercise gets your blood flowing, which in turn raises your body temperature.
- Stay hydrated. In case you haven't figured out that blood flow is important when it comes to staying warm, here's another thing that keeps the blood pumping.
- Don't smoke. Nicotine, like caffeine, constricts blood vessels and keeps blood from reaching your hands and feet.
- Wear layers. Keeping your head and body warm will help keep your extremities warm.
It's simple. If you eat healthy and exercise, your body should maintain a comfortable temperature. But, we all know that's not always the case. Follow these steps to warm up quickly and to help your overall health and temperature.
