The surprisingly warm weather has been more than welcomed by many as it seems we have skipped winter this year. Although the holidays have passed us by and the month of December has come to a close, winter weather seems to be making an appearance fashionably late. It is important we are prepared these next upcoming weeks as the cold weather is coming surely but slowly.

Did you know that most of your heat and thermal energy is loss through your head, fingertips and feet? These areas are important to keep layered. One way to protect your feet is by double pairing your socks before heading out while keeping your head covered and protected from cold air. The best piece of advice for those who are out daily is to keep bundled as keeping warm is the key to beating this season cold-free.

It is much easier to remove articles of clothing while out as opposed to wearing less if you become uncomfortable too bundled up. If you are more of a homebody who dislikes venturing out of the house during the winter, baking may be the answer. Yes, baking. The house overheats from the oven and leaves your home nice and toasty. ‘Tis the season for baked goods, including cookies and pies, and are always inviting to the home. Try hosting a party so that you will not have to travel in the cold air and harsh winds and you can have a nice smelling house and treats for all!
