Brace yourselves, winter is coming! When temperatures are very low, it is super important for you to keep warm and safe, especially the children and the elderly, who are particularly vulnerable to the cold. However, anyone can be affected by the power of winter and that is why today’s infographic has a lot of useful tips to stay warm before the real cold season begins.

Of course, staying at home as long as possible helps reduce the risk of being affected by the cold, but it’s not really a solution, is it? Besides, a lot of houses are still very cold due to bad construction or just because they are equipped with an unsuitable heating system.

But once you cross your door step and leave the house, it’s obvious you will get way colder than before. Several layers of clothing and hot beverages can really help you, as exposure to cold temperatures can cause serious or even lethal health risks. During the winter, the body loses heat faster than it can produce and the results might range from a common cold to a severe hypothermia if you’re not careful. This condition, for instance, affects the brain, preventing the victim from thinking clearly or moving naturally.

Being cold necessarily means being careful, that is the main thing you must know. And the risks double when you suffer from a chronic disease, so pay attention to all these advices we have to show you. You won’t get less cool for wearing an extra sweater or proper shoes to protect your body from the cold. Try to stay diseases-free this winter and you will see how good it is to enjoy the holidays without that annoying running nose messing your gift exchange.

Winter can be better if you’re ready to face it; it’s just a matter of knowing exactly how!
