Rachel Khoo’s tips: keeping warm when temperatures drop

Although I love warmer weather (think beaches, palm trees and pineapples), as someone who’s spent plenty of time in colder climates, I’ve learnt to embrace hygge during the cooler months and enjoy the cosines of the season. I’ve also learnt that there are plenty of ways to keep warm during winter, without having to turn the heater up to full blast. So pop on that woolly sweater, brew that warm cup of tea and read my tips for keeping warm when temperatures drop:

  • Walk the dog
    Sure it might be getting frosty outside, but after a few minutes of keeping up with my excitable dog Kit, I’m soon shedding the scarf and feeling warm again. You can’t hibernate when you’ve got an active pup around.
  • Get baking
    If you’ve followed my travels and caught me on the telly, you’ll know I absolutely love to bake. During the autumn and winter months, you’ll often find me pottering around the kitchen baking crusty loaves of bread. Not only does kneading get you moving, but when you take your freshly baked bread out of the oven, and top it with butter, you’ll feel warmer in no time. There’s no better scent.
  • Spin that vinyl
    If your record collection is gathering dust, brush it off and pop your favourite album on the player for a spin. You’ll soon find yourself busting a move in the living room and heating up.
  • If all else fails, cosy up to a hot water bottle
    It’s an old trick, but a good one. If you need a break, pick up a feel-good book, fill up that
    hot water bottle and cuddle up on the couch. It works a charm every time.
