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
#3. Sport flip-flops. Frostbite is no joke.
#4. Dare someone to lick a flagpole. Yes, it will get stuck and no, it
#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
#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
#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
#10. Wear soaked shoes. Opt for waterproof so ya don’t get hurt.
