1.Place plastic sheeting over the window and tack it into place over the window.
2.Hang heavy thermal drapes on windows facing the windest part.
3.Put runners on high traffic areas on floor/carpet too
4.Check the temperature code set by law, buy a thermometer and keep track.
5.Wear heavy wool socks while at home.
6.Old school water heaters contribute to ice forming on window -avoid sleeping anywhere near there.
7.Burn incense(while home) it takes the edge out of cold air
8.Hang pictures of “warmth” related sceneries.

-Drink warm beverages–A warm mug also offers a chance to warm cold hands -dress in layers
-eat quick-energy foods (raisins, other dried fruit) helps to increase body heat
-wear a hat (no kidding) heat goes out of body through your head
-wear thermal long johns
-use several light weight blanket, not one heavy one
-Wear mittens instead of gloves–they allow your fingers to move freely in contact with one another and will keep hands much warmer.
-Alcohol causes the body to lose its heat more rapidly– even though one may feel warmer after drinking alcoholic beverages
-buy a hot water bottle
-take a very hot bath before bedtime
-“heat to go” heating pads that are filled with a gel. just flick the metal piece inside and the gel solidifies, reaches temps of about 110F and stays warm for about 4-5 hours…. they are reusable only problem is you have to heat them in boiling water or in the microwave to get them ready to work again.
-purchase portable electric heater
-tape bubble wrap around the frame of the windows to create a permanent seal
-eat a candy bar (increases metabolism)
-fleece blankets
