Warm Up with Clothing

When the temperature drops, we often hear about winterizing your home. However, isn’t it just as essential to keep ourselves warm? Here are a few tips for staying warm in the cold months:

Begin at the Top

Working to keep your head and brain warm is your body’s priority. When the weather is cold, the body will use heat from other areas to accomplish this. Approximately 40% of heat is lost through the head. Thus, covering your head with a hat or a hood is essential. In doing this, you will help to keep the rest of yourself warm.

Layers, Layers, Layers

Layers insulate your body, and they also let you have your thermostat. Putting layers on and taking them off can control your body’s temperature. This is important because sweating in your clothing will only make you colder in the long run. Therefore, listen to your body and remove a layer when necessary.


Isn’t it always all about the details? The same is valid for keeping warm. Gloves, mittens, wool socks, scarves, and neck gators cover exposed areas of your body and seal you up from the cold outside air.

 Check the Weather

Michigan weather can be unpredictable, so check it in the morning to ensure proper dress for that day.
