If you cover your feet and head properly then chances of catching cold are minimized.Besides wearing warm inners is another way to keep cold at bay. Hot tea and coffee intake also reduces cold feeling.

Keeping feet warm as well is important, though. I am just now putting on socks. I have been wearing house slippers but no socks. I will probably take a nap in a warm bed and then I have to go to work. The house is too hot where I go work, so I wear layers I can remove.

Being in a tropical country, I never experienced subzero temperature, and thank God for that, because I know I won't survive that with my physical condition. The coldest it has been here was during a week of storm and heavy rains. The sun almost never showed it's radiance for that whole week. There are places in our country though that are normally colder than most, usually these are places located in the highlands. One very known place is called Baguio, which actually fits because the name means storm/typhoon in our language. I have heard news of hail that occurred in that place. I sometimes wonder how it would feel for me to live there and experience the coldness of the place. I also want to experience winter even for just once in my life, just to know how it feels. I know that during rainy and cold season, I wear a shirt under my sweater and a jogging pants or pajamas at home, sometimes underneath a cozy blanket. Hot coffee or chocolate drink would really help, and for meals, hot soup is a must.

I am happy that I do not have to experience and suffer it but somehow I am curious and would at least want to try to get the feel of it, winter, snow, and all.

I have this awesome winter comforter for my bed that is a double edged sword. On one hand I am warm and cozy on the coldest night but on the other, I don't want to get out of bed

Hi sender: I must say that I love chocolate a lot, any time I can I would eat chocolate so for me drinking hot chocolate is all I need and I'd feel better with that. ALVARO

I'm from a cold area (northern Colorado and southern Wyoming) so I have lots of practice staying warm. You've been given some good advice. Keep your head and feet warm, wear layers of clothing, drink hot liquids and either stay active or get under a blanket. Staying active is healthier. Make heating pads with old socks or sew a bag or mat and fill it with rice, then heat it in the microwave or a slow oven. That will keep your feet toasty warm when you sit. I sometimes fill a 2 liter bottle with hot water and use it to warm my feet when I go to bed at night. I also wear bedsocks when they're needed. Eat hot foods like stews and soups, too. Don't handle cold things if you don't have to. Stay away from walls and windows.

It is 41 here right now. Luckily there isn't a wind. I am keeping my heat down and wearing nice and comfy pajamas with socks. I am comfortably warm and hope it doesn't get real cold outside. The tough part is being inside several days without needing to go out and then having an appointment. Chilly! But I do have those warm and cozy pajamas waiting when I get home.

A warm bed does sound like the right place to be when the temperature starts dropping/ being comfortable seems to be half the battle pne we just want to win.

I have a sweater on right now. My neck gets cold easily because I got my hair cut really short, so I have a warm scarf on my neck, too. I am making a pot of hot coffee to drink. I also like heat buddies, socks filled with rice, that you heat in the microwave.Put it anywhere you are cold, or have aches and pains.

Seriously its really cold outside even here at my place but i take my old fav options to get rid of it see firstly wear clothes as warn an you can, then have a hot cup of coffee ahaan such a wonderful thing hot coffee is, then wrap yourself in cozy quilts and lastly a very famous english poet John Keats has said that ''winters are not that cold if you have warm memories of your dear ones''

Hello Its not that cold here yet. But yes cold is increasing day by day.. There are many ways for staying warm and different people used to choose different. For me, I used to take hot tea with ginger (not often) and sometimes my dad advice me to walk in more cold, but rarely I follow it. Moving in Sun light is good way of staying warm and at evening time we can go for winter clothes.

Lots of clothes and keep moving! I work outdoors most of the time, and layers of clothing are definitely the way to go. I also wear a hat all the time. In summer it protects me from sun, but in the winter it saves me losing all that precious body heat through my head.

Hi, Weather in our city is not so cold. The temperature never goes below 15 in our city. But we feel very pleasant in winter. I like to drink tea added with ginger in cold weather. Sweater or woolen clothes are necessary when we go outside the house. I like to eat hot food in winter.

I think that drinking tea can warm you up no matter what the weather is doing outside. it can be such a comfort in the cold or whenver the mood strikes.

Well, I am glad to live in areas that does not usually get that cold. But when it is colder and I have to be outside it is time for the sweats under my skirt and then a sweatshirt over my T-shirt or other shirt. Then I either have my hooded sweatshirt on, or find a hat I crocheted and sometimes gloves if needed.

hi, for me to keep me warm during cold weather is to use a jacket so that i will not easily affect with that cold, sometimes when i am at home i just drink warm milk usually in the morning to lessen the cold that i feel,and also keep moving can keep me warm too.

We are experiencing the worst heatwave in my lifetime. I can barely think straight and I only have on 2 items of clothing. I'd love to be cooler right now. I'm going to bed soon and hope I can sleep. Hope you feel warmer soon.

hi sender621 Brrrrrr!.. To keep warm in chilly weather, I cover my neck with a scarf or wear a turtle neck sweater. A scarf is good to cover my nose on windy days. I like to wear knee warmers, boots, hat or hood to keep my ears warm and of course a warm pair of gloves or mittens.

Keep the heat on. Wear warm clothes. What I would do is to bundle up, throw a scarf around my face and take a nice little walk. That way when you get home you will feel much warmer.
