It's very important to stay warm during these cold days, especially when you are volunteering outside.
We want to give you some tips on how to keep you warm:
- It might sound a little bit strange but... don’t dress up too warm and cozy. Make sure you don’t sweat because it lowers your body temperature. Therefore, wear layers.
- Wear suitable clothing, not only warm layers are important. The better your clothes fit, the better they keep the cold out.
- Eat well (and regularly). Your body is already running at full speed to keep you warm, so fuel it!
- Make sure to wear a hat and scarf. Most body heat is lost through your head and neck.
