    Tips for keeping warm

    It's that time of year again!
    I admit it, I like to be warm....I HATE being colder than 20*C and I'd prefer it to be warmer than 25. But this year I'd really like to be "greener" (and MUCH cheaper) so I have turned down my thermostat.
    What are some ways you all keep warm at home...especially when you can't curl up under a blanket?
    In bed I always keep a hot water bottle so I can keep toasty at night, because I especially hate being cold when I sleep. In the house I wear layers and sometimes even a scarf, but sometimes I'm still very cold. It's not -that- cold in my apartment, but I'm sensitive to it.

    I'm pretty sensitive to the cold, too. I've found that wearing a dressing gown to bed really helps. Also, beanie + thick socks = warm.

    And plenty of hot drinks! Warm you from the inside out :-)

    I have a small space heater with an automatic thermostat on it. I set it usually for 65 and it kicks on and off. It's really so that when I wake up, it's not to a frozen room. But normally I layer up. I have on my nightgown, flannel jammy bottoms and a sweater!

    I tend to have poor circulation in my feet, so keeping my feet warm is top priority. I put on sock and legwarmers (hey, I studied to become a choreographer so I can get away with wearing them). Other than that an electric blanket was the best Christmas present I've ever received.

    Oh I didn't mention that either. Being Diabetic, I tend to have bad circulation in my feet as well. So I bundle up in socks and make sure the space heater is pointed at my feet! In bad times I have also been known to rub Vick's on my feet and then putting my socks on. Warms then up right away!

    Re: Tips for keeping warm

    I ignore cold... stop thinking about how cold it is, and think warm thoughts... I imagine myself breathing in fire energy and breathing out the cold through water energy within me. =o) its how I tolerate having to walk into a freezer at work.

    I bet! I'm really looking forward to the day when I can do that

    Being a single person though, I think the hot water bottle is the best I'm going to get right now lol.

    Today, I bought: 1 pair of bootie slippers, 2 pairs of knit socks, 2 pairs of knit tights, 1 pair opaque tights and a pair of leg warmers. Cost: 45 Euro, but good value.
