Even worse than getting out of bed when it’s still dark
outside? Stumbling out your front door to trudge to the bus stop. In the
frigid, freezing cold. Worse than that? When your bus is ten minutes late. Brr!
Stay warm with our quick tips.
You think I’m joking? I’m totally not. When you make it out
to the bus stop, the only people who are there are other freezing cold people
and grumpy adults driving by in their cars, on their way to work. You’ll amuse
your bus stop buddies with your antics, and probably the grumpy grown-ups, too.
So go ahead. Skip to my Lou, darlings.
Wear a hat
Dad is right: You do
lose a lot of body heat out of the top of your uncovered head. Cover it up with
a way-bright topper. Bonus points if it’s lined with fleece or faux sheepskin,
and covers your ears.
Sip something hot
Snag a travel mug out of the cupboard and tote along a cup
of tea or hot chocolate. You don’t have to get fancy—the instant kind is just
fine. Even if you don’t finish it, the steam on your face and the heat leeching
out into your hands will make ya grateful for your cup of, well, whatever suits
Dry your hair in the a.m.
So maybe going out with wet hair won’t put ya in bed with
pneumonia, but it certainly won’t keep ya toasty. And arriving to homeroom with
frozen locks? Not cute, chica. Wake up five minutes earlier than usual to give
yourself time to dry…or shower before bed!
The more fuel your body has at the beginning of the day, the
more body heat you’ll be able to produce. Check out our fave weekday breakfast
Pop in your earbuds and call up a playlist with all of your
pop dance faves. Sure, they’re fun to listen to, but as you walk to the bus listenin’
to your tunes, you’ll find yourself marching to the beat of the song rather
than adopting your usual shuffle down the sidewalk.
