How to keep your hands warm in winter

Winter is not only a season of Christmas gifts and a festive atmosphere but also a period of outbreaks of respiratory diseases. Hypothermia is one of the main reasons for feeling unwell, fever and cold symptoms.

It is important to take care of yourself and follow simple recommendations that will help you stay warm outside. If you suddenly forgot your mittens at home and it's freezing outside, OBOZ.UA has collected the most effective tips to help you quickly warm your hands.

Life hack 1

First of all, you should quickly rub your hands. Doctors say that the main reason hands and feet freeze in cold weather is that the body prioritizes keeping vital organs, such as the heart and lungs, warm. This leads to a decrease in blood flow to the extremities. Thus, rub your hands and keep doing it until they start to warm up. Repeat the procedure periodically.

Life hack 2

Hands and feet get cold because they are the parts of the body where heat is lost in the cold the fastest. However, experts note that it is the extremities (and the ears) that have more thermoregulatory receptors to direct blood flow from the center of the body. If you have to wait for someone outside for a long time in winter, you can try another life hack, which is sitting on your hands. The fat deposits on your buttocks will serve as heat transfer, so you can warm up your limbs quite quickly.

You can also breathe on your hands and then rub them quickly. These simple actions will help to disperse the blood and warm up your frozen limbs.

Life hack 4

Another obvious way to warm up is to keep your hands in your pockets. It should get warmer after a while.

Life hack 5

Do simple hand exercises. You can wiggle your fingers, stretch your arms forward and shake them to restore normal blood circulation. If possible, do general body exercises.
