Dress in layers: Wearing layers helps to keep you warm by trapping heat between the layers. Make sure to wear a base layer made of moisture-wicking material to help keep you dry, a middle layer for insulation, and a top layer to protect against wind and moisture.
Protect your extremities: Your hands, feet, and head are most susceptible to cold-related injuries, so make sure to wear warm gloves, socks, and a hat.
Stay hydrated: It's easy to become dehydrated in the winter because the air is dry, so make sure to drink plenty of water.
Stay inside during extreme weather: If the weather is extremely cold or there is a blizzard, it's best to stay inside to avoid frostbite and other cold-related injuries.
Stay active: Engaging in physical activity can help to keep you warm, but make sure to dress appropriately and take breaks to warm up if you get too cold.
Keep an emergency kit in your car: If you get stranded in your car, it's important to have some basic supplies on your hands such as blankets, food, water, and a flashlight.
Check on your neighbours: If you have elderly neighbours or neighbours with disabilities, check on them to ensure they are okay and have what they need to stay warm.
I hope these tips help you stay safe and warm during the winter months!
