Tips for keeping warm outside

With the dip in temperatures and risk of frostbite, we thought we would share some tips for staying warm:

  • Dress in layers
  • Cover as much skin as possible.  Use
    • warm hats
    • mitts (warmer than gloves if you are walking)
    • scarf (multiple scarves are even better - one for the neck & face and one crossed over the chest)
  • Wear good boots (or add a layer or two of wool fabric to the bottom of your shoes)
  • Stay hydrated - drink lots of water
  • Don't stand still, move
