This past weekend was the coldest weekend of this winter season. Saturday evening was -8˚F along with some wind chill. After living in this winter wonderland for such a long time we Michiganders come up with some ways to keep warm. Here are a few of my trade secrets.
-This past semester I was introduced to the idea of taking baths. Before that I was a shower man. But there is nothing better than a hot bath and a good book. A bath keeps me warm for atleast the next seven hours.
- A couple of years ago I got a space heater that fits perfectly under my desk. So when I am studying I can just flick on the switch for some instant heat. This is also where origami comes into play, because the goal is to stay in one place.
✓ I went to Micheal's and bought a packet of origami paper so I could make apaper crane but since then I have discovered so many other cool things to fold.
-Lifting weights, running, and biking really hard will also keeps you warmer throughout the day.
-Finally, after a long day of work nothing is better than a nice down comforter, a body pillow and some jersey knit sheets.
