FYI: Simple Tips on How to Stay Warm this Winter

Winter throws us a few challenges as far as keeping warm goes; we are more hungry in cold weather and we need a certain internal temperature to function as mammals, which requires consuming more energy.  But when we eat more and keep our bodies in continual digesting mode, we lose energy for other necessary functions and for our immune systems, which make us more vulnerable to getting sick.

These simple tips allow us to harness our energy and stay healthy and energized.


Wear warm clothing both outside and inside your home. Organic cotton and wool are the best materials because they allow your skin to breathe and sweat (one of the ways we detoxify).


Keep your socks on in the house, or wool slippers, or both. Energy leaves us through our extremities. Socks and slippers make a huge difference keeping us warm.


Take warm baths, or even long warm showers if a bath is not available.


Drink lots of hot herbal teas.


If possible take saunas – infrared saunas are especially good. More and more gyms have these available.


Make your liquid meal a warm soup instead of a cold smoothie or juice, especially at night.


If you have a fireplace, use it. Gas or wood – there is something very nurturing about relaxing around the fire beyond just the temperature it generates.


Shocking the system with a short burst of cold at times can help activate detoxification.
