10 Best Ways to Stay Warm In the Winter


Stay Warm with a Heating Pad

1. Natural Stone Heat Mat

The natural stone heat mat can include different kinds of gemstones. The reason to include gemstones in a heating pad or heating mat is that it comes with many different health benefits. Jade, tourmaline, amethyst, and obsidian are just a few stones that can be included.

The main reason is that these stones emit FIR far infrared rays that allow the heat to penetrate deeper into your body. Some stones also emit negative ions that help clean the air around us.

A natural stone mat can not only keep you warm but also comes with some additional health benefits. For more information about natural stone mats, take a look at our Top 5 jade infrared heating pads.

2. Heating Pad

Sunbeam King Size XpressHeat Heating Pad: Resorting back to the basics, a traditional heating pad is always great to have in the winter! But, the best part about a heating pad is its versatility, whether you use it because you are cold or to alleviate muscle tension.  Also, this heating pad can be purchased online and features:

  • 4 different heating settings
  • A 2-hour auto-off function
  • Fast heat

Stay Warm with a Heated Blanket or Bedding

3. Heated Blanket

Biddeford Reversible Heated Sherpa Throw: This is an amazingly soft and warm heated blanket that you will become addicted to using! It is machine washable and 100% micro plush polyester. Also, it’s a nice large size with a 13-foot cord for the handheld heating control. Additionally, it features:

4. Heated Mattress Pad

What better than to go to bed in a warm comfy bed that’s been preheated with a mattress pad. There are many versions to choose between. You can get a mattress pad with different heat zones, you can get one that’s waterproof, you can even get one with natural stones…

Stay Warm With Clothing

5. Socks

Yaktrax Womens Cozy Cabin Socks Heather: Socks are one of the most essential mechanisms to staying warm. I don’t know about you, but I always remember my grandma telling me to wear my socks or else the heat will escape my body through my feet. Since then, it is fair to say that I did not question the wisdom of my grandma. Instead, I always wear warm socks throughout the winter. They really do help your entire body stay warm! So, that is why I would especially recommend these cozy cabin socks! They are festive, multi-color schemed.
