Usually, 3 layers of clothes are recommended. The first layer should be made of some material that can absorb moisture. The second layer should be warm that can keep your body temperature moderate. And the last layer should be some coat that can prevent you from rain or snow.
- Cover all body parts
One should not only cover the body, but also their hands, legs, feet and all the body parts that are exposed to lower temperature. Wear cap on the head to cover your hair and scarf on the neck because these body parts easily help the body to catch cold. Wear tights under jeans and multiple socks inside the winter shows. Just keep your entire body covered.
- Physical activity
Physical activity, exercise, yoga, running, lifting weight, moving your legs and arms, walking and other movements can increase the blood flow in your body. When the blood is pumped then the body temperature is regulated and you can keep yourself cold free.

- Intake of warm beverages and food
Your body has some heat sensors inside your digestive tract. These sensors are activated when someone intakes hot beverages like coffee, green tea, soup. Also, you can wrap your cold hands outside the hot cup and keep your hands warm. Ginger is a food that stimulates blood circulation and increases the body temperature. Lastly, fat consumption can create insulation in the body helping you stay cold-free.
