How To Keep Your Feet Warm In Winter
In the UK over the past couple of months we have seen an unusual amount of snow and ice, we tend to get this once a year for about two days but at the end of last year and the start of the new one we have seen a long seemingly endless amount of bitingly cold weather that made your feet and hands numb.I personally hate the cold winter weather and i do suffer with getting cold feet,i have some marvelous ideas for keeping your feet warm and thought i would share them with you,from what shoes and socks to wear to exercises,they all help towards keeping your feet toasty.
The most important thing to have in my opinion is dry socks,i always keep a spare pair with me in the winter months as if you are trudging around in snow and ice your shoes and socks can become wet or damp and this will lead to your feet never getting warm,keep the spare pair with you and if your feet become damp simply put your spar ones on the radiator and then slip them on....lovely.Buy a few pairs of thermal socks for the winter as they do help alleviate the cold.Thermal socks work by trapping any heat radiating from your feet and limit excess sweating,hence keeping your feet warm.They cost a bit more but its worth investing trust me.
Tips to keeping feet warm
There are quite a few things you can do to keep your feet warm this winter,below i shall list some of the more important ones.
Exercise: If you don't do it then you should,it helps circulation of the blood around your body and to the extremities such as your feet,you should be exercising anyway as your live for longer..
Drink plenty of fluid:Keep your body topped up with fluid throughout the day as dehydration will not help the circulation.
Keep core temperature up:Keep your core temperature up by wearing thermal vests as this will help the extremities keep warm.
Don't sit still:Dependant on what job you do it is vitally important that you move your feet around,if you do sit down for your job then do some feet exercises or get up and grab a coffee or go to the loo,whatever you need to do to get your feet moving and the blood circulating.
Use other means:use other means such as rubbing your feet together or using a hot water bottle to rest your feet on or wrapping them up in a blanket.
These are a fabulous idea for when your at home and your feet just cant get warm,sometimes slippers just cant do your feet justice when it comes to keeping them warm, although not overly attractive,theses little booties can be put in the microwave for a few seconds and the beads that are in them trap the heat and then when you put them on your feet are bathed in a warm glow, i had a pair brought for me for Christmas and they are superb
