North India its cold take care

Attached temperartures in North India today some tips to protect yourself from the cold weather friends.

#1 Avoid heading out, as far as possible

Exposing yourself to the chilly winter winds is nothing short of an undue invitation to health issues like cold, cough, and fever.

So, as far as possible, avoid heading out during the cold wave, and seek shelter in your blanket.

Nevertheless, if you can't keep from heading out, cover yourself well.

#2 Put on those layers

Whether you choose to go out or to stay at home, not covering yourself well is never a good idea, if you want to stay safe from the cold.

Clothes made from wool, cotton, and fleece are the warmest. Hence, go for them.

Avoid leaving any body part exposed to the cold. Wear warm undergarments, woollen sweaters, jackets, hats, socks, scarves, and gloves.

#3 Stay as active as you can

We understand you just want to snuggle into your blanket and not get out.

But, exercising at regular intervals will keep your blood circulation running, and will also keep you naturally warm. Further, it will help boost your immunity.

In case it's so cold that you can't go to the gym, perform easy exercises like push-ups, sit-ups, climbing the stairs etc., inside your home.

#4 Eat healthy and warming foods

What's better than grabbing a hot cup of tea, and a book, when it's too cold outside?

Turns out that's exactly what you have to do to stay safe from the cold weather.

Eat comforting and hot food items to stay naturally warm, from inside out. Some of the best options are eggs, dry fruits, and sweet potatoes. Teas and soups are also great.

#5 Stay hydrated

Just because you don't frequently feel the urge to drink water during winters, doesn't mean you can skip it.

Staying hydrated is crucial for your health. Aim to drink 8-12 glasses of water throughout the day.

However, avoid alcohol. We say so because it only makes you feel warm by expanding blood vessels in your skin, but actually takes heat away from vital organs.

Last but not the least

If these measures don't work, try adding some extra sources of heat (such as an electric heater or fireplace) so as to stay warm and healthy this winter. But if you anyway end up getting a cold/cough/fever, do see your doctor as soon as possible. more

Your suggestions could be made applicable only to a small part of the populace. What about the working people, particularly those who earn their livelihood on daily basis and their wards wait for returning back of these people along with food stuffs being purchased out of the money they got at the end of their day's work? The kind of works these people do can't be done keeping their hands under blanket or any other warm clothes! more  
God made man in such a way that the body automatically adjust the temperature. However he/she should take of themselves. more  
Be it extreme cold, heat or heavy downpour. Working class keep on moving with all possible precautions. Nothing should come to standstill
as it will bring more miseries. more  
There is no other option other than having protection against cold. Then go about your work. Hope social organizations provide warm clothing/blankets to those who are lower income strata. more
