Contrary to one of my favorite sweaters, and this may be an unpopular opinion here, but I’d rather be cold than hot. Cold = more cuddles, more blankets, more lovely layers (perhaps in a nice plaid?). When I’m hot, I’m cranky- and don’t let me get hot, hungry, and sleepy at the same time or else. Granted, I don’t like it too cold, but I can deal. Some people in my life, not so much.
Fixing the side effects from the cold does not just mean warming up. A winter chill can dry out the skin and ruin your mood. If you have friends or family who would rather spend winters where the sun always shines, help them flip it around to enjoy what I like to think of as “snuggle season”. Think gifts to keep cozy: comforting scents, soft textures, skin soothers.
Personally, I love curling up with a cup of coffee, candles lit all over the apartment, and tree decorated to watch a favorite movie. What’s your favorite way to keep warm when it’s chilly?
