Tips for Cold Days

  • Stay indoors as much as possible.
  • Plan ahead by checking the weather forecast before heading out.
  • Dress to suit the weather. Wear multiple layers of loose fitting clothes, (including a hat, scarf and mittens) and cover up as much exposed skin as possible.
  • Drink warm fluids but avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages as they cause your body to lose heat more rapidly.
  • Reschedule or plan outdoor activities for another day.
