8 Things Everyone Who Is "Always Cold" Needs To Warm Up Their Life

Because being cold sucks.

Here in Ohio, it is cold outside. There has been plenty of snow and temperatures in the single digits. With that being said, it is important to stay cozy, so here are a few items that can help.

1. Heated blanket

Getting warm under a blanket is great, but getting warm under a warm blanket is greater.

2. Slippers

Cold feet are the worst, especially in the winter. Walking around your house with some slippers on will make you feel a lot happier.

3. Cabin socks

While you can really only wear slippers around your house, you can wear cabin socks everywhere, and they give you pretty much the same cozy feeling.

4. Hot water bottle

Hot water bottles can be used for keeping your feet warm, just holding against your body when you want to feel warm, and can be used throughout the entire year for cramps or sore muscles.

5. Big scarf

Having a scarf this big can make you feel like you're still at home with your favorite blanket.

6. Fleece leggings

Fleece lined leggings are very warm and comfortable. And they can be worn with so many different outfits.

7. Foot warmer

Foot warmers let the rest of your body be free while warming up your freezing feet. It's a win-win for your body.

8. Hat and gloves

When you are outside, having a hat and some gloves is essential if you care about feeling your fingers or your ears.

Seven New Year’s Resolutions That You Might Actually Be Able To Keep

Make your New Year's Resolution something that's realistic for the lifestyle you live.

We all know those New Year’s Resolutions that seem super attainable but turn out not to be. We keep up with them for about a week, but then fall off the routine, abandon our goals and return to our old habits and lifestyles. But, I think I have a few New Year’s Resolutions that might be easier to keep up with.

1. Exercise three days a week.

Working out everyday can be challenging if you have a full time job or are a student but, every other day can be easier to fit into your schedule. Plus, studies have shown that exercise is more effective if it’s stretched out over the week, giving your body time to recover before your next workout.

2. Power off your devices before bed.

Power off your devices 1 hour to 30 minutes before bed. Find a new book to read or start keeping a journal, or find some other way to wind down before bed other than using your laptop or cell phone.

3. Bring your own lunch more often.

If you eat out often, cut it down by a day or two and bring your own lunch. Pick up some tupperware storage containers at the store and put your leftovers in them and take them to work with you for an easy, cheaper lunch.

4. Add more fruits and veggies to your meals.

A good way to make your meals healthier is to think to add more color to your plate. It’s a simple way to make your meals healthier without always thinking about how many calories you’re taking in.

5. Stop revolving around your smartphone.

You miss out on a lot of things when you're on your phone during family gatherings and events. So make a rule with yourself to either power off those devices or put them on silent so you’re not always looking at them.

6. Try something new.

Try something new once a week or maybe once a month if that’s easier. Whether it’s a new activity or a new restaurant or a new style of clothing, take a step out of your comfort zone and try something new!

7. Take some time for yourself.

Everyone needs some “me time” and we don’t always take time for ourselves so scheduling it may be needed. Catch up on your reading list, get a manicure or a pedicure, or watch that movie you’ve always wanted to see.

All in all make your New Year's Resolution something that's realistic for the lifestyle you live, something that you can stick to, and something that makes you happy. In life, do the things that make you happy, not the things people or society says you should do. I hope everyone has a happy New Year and let's make this year better than the last! Cheers to 2018!!
