Feeling Like Fall: 5 Ways to Stay Warm with Lupus in Cool Weather

1. Never go to bed col

  Nothing worse  l than getting into a freezing cold bed at night .  You should consider looking into a heated mattress pad that has multiple heat settings.

2. Purchase clothing that can be layered

When building your outfit, consider sweat-wicking, stretchy, and comfortable fabrics

3. Warm up through liquids

When the temperatures drop, drinking warm liquids throughout the day and staying hydrated is one of the quickest ways for me to warm up.

4. Invest in some heat packs

If you need another way to stay warm over the next few months, I highly recommended adding heat packs to your list. A variety of brands and sizes can be found on Amazon

5. Protect yourself from germ

This isn’t necessarily a “warming” tip, but it is something I do consistently when the weather gets cooler to help protect myself from nasty germs. I make a shot-like drink that contains fresh crushed garlic, lemon juice, aloe vera juice, grated ginger, and honey. I have found that drinking this on a regular basis has really helped my already battered immune system stay in check. Sometimes I even add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little extra kick!
