Are You Cold Intolerant?
I love living in Binghamton, but this cold weather knocks the wind right out of me! Bustle says that if you're cold intolerant like I am, there are some things you can do to make this weather just a little bit more bearable.
- Boost your diet with iron-packed foods such as spinach, lentils or cashews as iron deficiency can cause anemia which could be why your hands and feets are always so cold. Increasing your intake of iron-rich foods could help you deal with the cold this time of the year.
- Get enough sleep! It not only helps you in almost every aspect of your physical and mental health, but it especially helps you with blood circulation in your body. If your blood is moving a little slower because you're sleep deprived, you're going to feel a whole lot colder.
- Drink something hot like decaffeinated coffee or tea as it can help you feel a little bit warmer. Your mouth is sensitive to temperature, so drinking something hot will definitely make you feel warmer.
It's always smart to talk to your doctor if you're feeling much colder this year than last year as there may be a medical condition that has developed. Definitely seek medical advice if you're concerned about how cold you're feeling.
