Ideas For Staying Cosy This Winter

Whether we like it or not, winter is well and truly on the way. The long evenings have given way to darkness, and the warm summer sun has once again gone, leaving us with cooler weather in its place. For many of us, the worst thing about winter is how cold it makes us. If, like me, the reason that you dread the winter is the cold weather, then you are in the right place.
To help make the winter months a little more bearable, I have put together a guide to all the best ways to keep warm and cosy. Intrigued? Yes - then keep reading for everything that you need to know:
Light a fire
If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace in your home, light a fire. While radiators warm your home just as well as an actual fire, they don't give the same sense of warmth. There's nothing nicer than sitting by an open fire on a cold winter's day. Well, I don't think so, anyway.
If you don't have a fireplace in your home, consider having one installed. Having a fire put into your living room won't come cheap. However, the warmth, and style that it will add to your living room, not to mention the value it will add, makes it worthwhile. Or, if you rent your home, you could always invest in an electric fire instead?
Invest in a comfortable knitted sweater
I don't know about you, but on cold days there's nothing I would rather wear than a soft cosy, knitted jumper. The best thing about knitted clothing is that it's very in this season, so you can be cosy and comfortable, as well as stylish.
Recently, I can across some Irish wool clothing and absolutely loved it. The designs were chic and stylish, and the wool was incredibly soft and cosy. You can buy some beautiful knitted pieces online, as well as on the high street, so make sure to have a browse.
Keep your feet warm
If you want to make sure that you stay as warm as possible this winter, keeping your feet warm and toasty is crucial. Believe it or not, if you're feet are cold, the rest of your body will feel cold as well. That's why keeping your toes nice and warm is so important.
Personally, I like wearing slippers or thick socks throughout the colder months. The best socks to buy are the ones made of pure wool, as wool is one of the best insulators.
Top tip: If you choose thick socks over slippers, try to choose a pair that have anti-slip soles, so that you don't slip while wearing them.
Treat yourself to hot drinks

Whether you are out and about or at home, one of the best ways to keep yourself warm is sipping on hot drinks. From hot chocolate and flavoured lattes to mulled ciders, there are so many delicious hot drinks to choose from.
I don't know about you, but especially when I am out and about in the cold, there is nothing I enjoy more than a warm drink. Admittedly, despite the cold weather, one of the best things about winter for me is the delicious drinks that come with it.
The coldness that comes with the winter months isn't very nice for anyone. But there are plenty of ways that you can ensure that wherever you are, you stay nice and warm.
