Some people have a hard time coping when the temperatures drop, especially if there are drafty windows around, insufficient home heating, or if they work outside for a long period of time. In these cases, the temperature of your fingers, toes, legs, arms, and even forehead might start to go down and you may feel extremely cold. 5-Minute Crafts will give you some tips on how to keep your body feeling warm naturally.

1. Do jumping jacks.

What to do:

  • Stand with your legs straight, your feet together, and your arms by your sides.
  • Jump up, placing your feet slightly more than hip-width apart and bringing your arms above your head.
  • Then jump again, lowering your arms and bringing your legs together.
  • Do 2 sets of 10 or more repetitions.

Why it works:

✅ Jumping jacks will increase your blood circulation and help your body feel warmer.

2. Practice the cobra pose.

What to do:

  • Lie on the floor face down, with your palms near your chest.
  • Then push up, and lift your head, your shoulders, and your chest.
  • Arching your back, pull your shoulder blades down and together.
  • Hold this position for 2 seconds, then lower your body back to the floor.
  • Repeat a few times.

Why it works:

✅ The cobra pose also helps improve blood circulation.

3. Dress in layers.

What to do:

  • Start with a thin layer of thermal underwear that wicks away moisture.
  • Then add insulation like a down jacket or wool sweater in the middle.
  • For the outer layer, use a windbreaker.
  • If you’re still cold, you can add one more layer.

Why it works:

✅ Wearing several layers of clothing helps trap your body heat and makes you feel warmer.

4. Keep your torso warm.

What to do:

  • Put on a vest to maintain the heat of your core organs, your heart, and your lungs.

Why it works:

✅ If you keep your torso warm, your entire body, especially your hands and feet, will get warmer too because blood flow won’t be redirected from them in order to keep the warmth of your vital organs.

5. Put your hands in your armpits.

What to do:

  • Put your hands under your clothes on the warm skin of your armpits to warm your fingers.

Why it works:

✅ Your armpits are one of the warmest parts of your body, so putting your hands in them will help if your fingers start to feel numb from the cold.

6. Massage your hands and feet.

What to do:

  • Take a neutral cream or almond oil and add a few drops of cinnamon or ginger essential oils to it.
  • Massage your hands and feet with this mixture every day.

Why it works:

✅ Hand and foot massages will improve blood circulation and essential oils will add some extra warmth to your limbs.

7. Try a foot soak.

What to do:

  • Take a basin and fill it with hot water.
  • Add a teaspoon of chili seeds (or a small amount of fresh grated ginger) to the basin.
  • Soak your feet in the solution for a little while.

Why it works:

Foot baths with chili seeds will improve the blood flow in your feet and make them feel warmer.

8. Do “vase” breathing.

What to do:

  • Imagine a flame running along your spine.
  • Then take a deep breath in and hold it for a few seconds.
  • When exhaling, contract your abdominal and pelvic muscles so that your lower belly takes the shape of a vase or pot.

Why it works:

✅ This technique will help you increase the temperature of your body.
