Don't want to freeze? 10 things not to do this winter


If you’ve watched the news, peaked at the Internet or checked Facebook, you know that like most of you #GL girls in the U.S., just about everyone in America is freezing their bums off right now. Yesterday, it was literally freezing in every single state except for Hawaii. And in many of those states, it wasn’t just freezing—it was dangerously cold. When you’re dealing with cold from a polar vortex or just regular old winter weather, here are 10 things you really shouldn’t do.

 

#1. Work out outside without protecting your extremities. Gloves, mittens, earmuffs, hats and socks are your besties right now. Pile ‘em on (or hit the gym).

 

#2. Walk to the bus stop with wet hair. Haircicles aren’t cute. Or healthy.

 

#3. Sport flip-flops. Frostbite is no joke.

 

#4. Dare someone to lick a flagpole. Yes, it will get stuck and no, it isn’t funny.

 

#5. Go for a run when there is an ice warning. Trust us, you’ll hit that slick patch before you see it. Bam.

 

#6. Lick your lips. They’ll get wicked cracked. Instead, slather on the lip balm.

 

#7. Disregard Dad’s admonition to bring a scarf. Worst that happens is ya don’t wear it, right?

 

#8. Stay in sweaty clothes. It’ll make you feel chillier than you should.

 

#9. Ignore your body. Your body shivers to produce heat. When you stop shivering when it’s super cold out, you could be experiencing early hypothermia.

 

#10. Wear soaked shoes. Opt for waterproof so ya don’t get hurt.

 

What’s your number-one don’t for cold weather? Tell us in the comments!

Make sure you’re wearing the right shoes for your workout! Hitting the gym in flats or running in flip-flops won’t give your feet the support they need and can really hurt your ankles later on. Ouch! 
 
You’re stranded after practice waiting for your ride (which is considerably late!). Luckily you have ____ to keep you busy.



 
 

High-heeled shoes are bad for your feet.
