How To Warm Up Your Cold Hands And Feet

Winter time is full of lots of issues– one of which is cold hands and feet, but there are ways to warm them up. Wisconsin-based internist Dr. John Brill says improving circulation to your extremities can be as easy as wearing mittens instead of gloves (also, wear loose clothing, which allows your body to heat up the extra air space), trying spicy foods, or giving yourself a quick massage. Other tips: stay away from cigarettes, replace your coffee and alcohol with water, and get active to get warmed up after coming in from the cold. He adds that if you just can’t seem to warm up or experience pain in the hands and feet along with cold, it could mean you have a blocked artery or other medical condition, and you should speak with your doctor.
