Top tips for keeping warm

What are your top tips for keeping warm? There is little doubt it is that bit chillier particularly in the evenings so it is time to check your central heating systems are in good order. Neglecting checking on your pipe insulation systems is a big mistake..If you want to put off putting the heating on a little longer, here are my top tips for staying warm and happy in  Autumn and Winter.

1. Boogie on down to housework

Put the music on full blast while cleaning and doing household chores. Not only will  it make it more fun but it is likely you will do it faster too.

2. Rock an Eighties look

Wear eighties leg warmers through the winter months indoors and outdoors

3. Double up on duvets

If you are like me you double up on duvets when the temperatures hit freezing.

4. Love your layers

Wearing more than one layer of clothing can make such a difference.

5. Sleeping bags and blankets

My teenagers are more than happy to snuggle up in a sleeping bag on the sofa. You might prefer a blanket and if you have two like me, you can ensure you cover up your legs too.

6. Go undercover

Cover up your extremities with hats, scarves, gloves and don’t forget to invest in a warm coat before the freezing temperatures come around..

7. Hot water bottle

There is nothing quite like the comfort of a hot water bottle water bottle whilst on the sofa working from home.

8. Eat the right things

Cold weather means comfort food but stay away from the pies and enjoy healthier options such as soup. Indulge in plenty of hot drinks too – mine’s a hot chocolate with cream on the top.

9. Exercise

Run up and down the stairs if you really can’t face the gym.  Better still, go out for a walk enjoying the seasonal changes and appreciating  the warmth of your home when you get back.

These are all tried and tested but don’t neglect checking out central heating boilers at this time of year rather than facing a horror story when the heating goes off unexpectedly.

How do you ensure you stay warm in the colder months?

    We’ve recently had our boiler serviced but must get our log burner swept and checked out as well ready for winter.I love getting ready for winter hibernation! #mmbc

    I can’t remember the last time we had our boiler serviced which probably means a service is overdue! I love snuggling up under a blanket with a cup of tea at this time of year #mmbc
