Hacks to keep you warm this winter

By QMHallsEllie 15 Dec 2020

You can always expect a cold winter in England so it's important to keep yourself toasty and warm to avoid getting ill.

If you're not used to the cold, here are some super easy (and cheap) ways of keeping the heat in...

1. Hot Water Bottle

These are so handy to have and are a super cheap way of staying warm at home.
Top Tip: Before bed, put the hot water bottle in your bed while you brush your teeth so when you get in it will be nice and warm.

2. Keep doors shut

If you've got the heating on, make sure you shut all the doors to keep the heat in. This makes a massive difference, not only does the room warm up quickly but it'll stay warm for longer.

3. Invest in a big winter coat

A definite must when living in England! It'll be a lifesaver for those walks to uni when temperatures really start to plummet. Get yourself gloves, scarf and hat whilst you're at it too. 

4. ...And a dressing gown

Perfect for slipping on first thing in the morning whilst you get ready and to keep you toasty in the evenings. Once you get one of these, trust us you'll live in it.

5. Close the curtains

Avoid heat escaping through the windows by keeping curtains closed, especially when the heating is on. 
Top tip: If your radiator is next to the window, tuck the curtain behind the radiator to make sure as much heat stays in the room as possible.

6. If all else fails...get a cup of tea!

Whether it's a classic brew, a fruit tea, coffee or hot chocolate, warm drinks are an instant fix to take the chill off.
