Winters are here and even though you won’t be using the energy for air conditioning and the fans, now the energy will be utilised in heaters. There are many conventional ways that can help you keep warm without the heaters. Here are 10 ways how you can do that:
1. Insulate your walls and windows
When winters are around the corner, insulate your walls by adding a bit of padding to provide some insulation. You can even use bubble wrap.
2. Cover your floors
If you have any bare floors, throw in some area rugs and cover them up. This also helps with the insulation and your bare feet will be really grateful to you in cold winter mornings.
3. Open the curtains and windows in the morning
Let the sunlight warm your home in the morning and it’s all free heat. Glass windows will let in heat and your furniture will store some of that warmth in.
3. Block the wind
At night, use thick curtains to block the heat from going away. It will make a huge difference. The cold wind drops the temperature and once you block those out, you will feel your room getting cosier.
4. DIY heaters
You can make a really cool space heater by using through a simple tutorial. Not only it will warm you but also make a cool decoration piece.
5. Cook more often
The more you stay in front of the heat the warmer you are. Try different recipes and cook elaborate dishes for the family. Not only is it fun but you get to eat amazing food too.
6. Sip on some chicken soup or coffee
They are absolutely delicious and work like a charm too.
7. Hot showers
Your body retains heat from the hot showers that will help you keep warm for longer periods. If possible, shower with the door open, the humidity will help raise the temperature of the house.
8. Do some yoga or aerobics
There is a pose for everything when it comes to yoga. Try some exercise or yoga, whatever you find comfortable, it will keep you fit and also keep you warm.
9. Sleep with a hot water bottle.
This is really simple to do and doesn’t require any elaborate techniques. Grab a hot water bottle and it will help warm you up in no time.
10. Find a cuddle buddy
If nothing works or if you are too lazy to do any of those, find a cuddle buddy and snuggle up to them for some body heat. It works quite well too!
