If you're a coffee drinker, have no fear. According to a recent study, it have proven that a cup of coffee won't kill you. For those who want high antioxidant drinks, you can try having a mug of black and green tea, cocoa or a glass of red wine.

If you choose to do a steamy escape, just be cautious with the steam itself. Extreme heat can lead to having a heat stroke or dehydration, while the steam will relax you and also relieve your hurting muscles. If you do feel ill or faint, take a break.

Based on the haramaki, it's an 16th-century Samurai protective wrap. Our modern day version can be worn under other layers of clothing and wrapped around our midsection. If you have shirts that might cause a drought in the mid-section and also too short, it would provide coverage for the entire area.
Other ideal layers of clothing for winter are leg warmers, balaclavas, faux turtleneck warmers and earmuff. Go outside in many layers.
Wear wooly socks to bed

By increasing your skin temperature by only 0.4 degrees Celsius with socks on your feet, you might experience a deeper, satisfying sleep with fewer wake-ups.
