How To Keep Warm In The Winter. Even though it is cold outside you can still keep warm with these tips. 

Lets start with your head: Cover your head with a hat, sock cap or your coat’s hood combined with a sock cap. Your head is the fastest place you will lose heat.

Middle area. Use several layers of clothing. Begin with a sleeveless tee shirt that fits close to your body, tuck it into your pants. Add a second layer with a sweater that is a little large for you. Then add a coat that is too large for you that fits over your sweater and has good insulation. The three types of winter jacket insulation are down feathers, synthetic fibers, and synthetic fleece. No matter the type of insulation, the effect is the same. The insulation traps your body heat, keeping you warm. The higher the insulation’s loft (thickness), the warmer you stay. Pick a coat that has a hood and fits over your gloves. Use a scarf around your neck. Wrap it around your neck and tuck it into your coat. Pull the scarf up to cover your face up to your eyes.

Gloves: We all know that you need gloves when going outside in the cold, but did you know mittens are warmer than gloves. Mittens keep your fingers together and hold in the warmth.

Pants: You will need two layers. First layer use cotton tights then add jean over the tights that are loose and fit into your boots.

Feet: Your feet will need to keep warm and dry. I use to go snowmobiling and I learned this trick that really works: Put on one pair of loose fitting cotton socks and wear booths that are one size to big for you. The cotton socks will soak in moisture from your feet and the large booths will add a layer of insulation.

As you can see, layers are the key to staying warm.
