10 Ways to Keep Warm this Winter

Winter is Here

Winter is here and it’s the time of the year when we all love to cuddle up in our warm beds and sip hot chocolate. However, there are still people who struggle to keep themselves warm and safe during this season. Our winter campaign at HCI is an effort to help such needy people. In this blog, we will be sharing 10 ways that can help you keep warm during this winter season.

Layer Up

Layering your clothes is one of the best ways to keep yourself warm. Instead of wearing one heavy jacket, wear multiple layers of light and breathable clothes. The trapped air between these layers will act as an insulator and keep you warm.

Cover Your Feet

Our feet lose heat very quickly. Therefore, it’s necessary to wear good quality socks and boots during winters. Also, make sure that your boots are waterproof to prevent your feet from getting wet.

Use a Heated Blanket

While all charitable acts are noble, those with the most substantial and lasting benefits for communities are considered superior. Sadaqah Jariyah projects range widely, but some stand out for their profound impact.

Hot Beverages

Sipping on hot chocolate, tea, or coffee can be a great way to keep ourselves warm during winters. It will also help keep you hydrated which is necessary even in winters.

Yet, access to clean water remains elusive for many. Constructing a well can serve countless people for years, contributing to health, prosperity, and the well-being of entire communities.

Exercise increases your heart rate and blood flow, which in turn, helps generate heat. Therefore, exercising during winters can help you stay warm and healthy.

Heating Pads

Heating pads are a great way to keep yourself warm while sitting or sleeping. You can easily buy them online or at your local pharmacy. They are especially useful for those who suffer from chronic pain.

Cover Your Head

As much as 10% of the body heat can be lost through the head. Therefore, it’s important to cover your head with a hat or scarf during winters.

Choose the Right Fabrics

Fabrics like wool, down, and fleece are great insulators and can help you stay warm during winters. On the other hand, fabrics like cotton and linen will not help you keep warm.

Use a Humidifier

The air inside our homes becomes dry during winters, which can cause dry skin, sore throat, and other health problems. Using a humidifier can help add moisture to the air, which can help you stay comfortable and healthy.

Stay Indoors

Sometimes the best way to keep ourselves warm is to stay indoors. Plan indoor activities such as movie nights, board games, or cooking with your friends and family during winters.
