Cold outside, hot inside!

Just when you think it’s over… bam! Give winter’s last hurrah the cold shoulder: kick back, relax and enjoy these 5 ways to warm up in the comfort of your home.

1

Comforting, lukewarm
(yes! yes!) drinks

Start by making yourself a lukewarm beverage (yes, you've read correctly) such as herbal tea, hot chocolate, or even soup. When sipping on tepid liquids, you increase your body temperature without breaking a sweat while hot beverages actually produce the opposite effect and cool the body (who would have thought, right?).

Plus, we bet you'll relish the gentle relaxation brought by the warm, soothing feel of a cup in your hands.

In a weekend chalet mood for a grog or spiked coffee? Remember that alcoholic drinks have a vasodilator effect, i.e. the alcohol in them causes blood vessels to dilate briefly. That oh-so-warm sensation will fade oh-too-quickly...

2

Candles. Tons and tons of candles.

Scandinavian cocooning — think warm fireplace, myriad candles, reading in bed, etc. — remains as popular as ever. That's because Hygge wellness can be achieved easily, by following even just one of its basic principles: for example, by creating a warm ambiance with simple candlelight (thank you, stylish candleholders).

True, regardless of their numbers, candles can't really heat a room. But that doesn’t stop their flickering charm from creating an inviting atmosphere that instantly heats up bodies and souls...

So, light them up every day!

Woven throw down

No mermaid blanket to slip into for some serious TV bingeing? Wrap yourself in a cozy woven throw.

As a bonus, it'll be the perfect match...
for your couch.

Pull the rug on winter

No one likes to walk on cold, bare floors—especially when coming back in.

Of course those knitted grandma slippers are quite warm and comfy, but did you know a handsome rug can feel just as soothing under your feet WHILE adding an actual touch of elegance to the living room? Grandma's hand-me-downs, not so much.

5

Insulating curtains, that’s hot!

Pros in the know: It's simple to guard against the cold — and even the heat — by treating your windows to some snazzy insulating curtains. With their thermal fleece lining, these window coverings let you control room temperature by blocking out cold and drafts, or stifling sun rays. The fact they’re opaque also comes in handy when you're looking for some privacy, like all those times you were practising your dance moves in the living room. (The neighbours say hi.)

They're the perfect solution to keep warm. And to keep power bills from giving you a heart attack.
