- 64°F) is the ideal temperature for your bedroom and 21°C (70°F) is the ideal temperature for your living room. Check your thermostat or use a room thermometer to monitor temperature.
- Breathing in cold air can increase the risk of chest infections. If you go out, put a scarf around your mouth to warm up the air before you breathe it in. If you stay in, make sure you keep your windows closed, particularly overnight in the bedroom (even if it’s your normal habit to leave them open).
- Stay active and when you are indoors try not to sit still for more than an hour, if you can get up. Walk around or make a hot drink (or take one to someone you know can’t get out).
- Eat well. It’s important to eat well, especially in the winter.
- Have at least one hot meal a day and have regular hot drinks, as they help to keep you warm.
