1. Don’t underestimate the power of scarves, mitts, and earmuffs. A lot of people think that warm pants and a cozy down jacket are enough to keep warm, but don’t forget to sweat the small stuff! Scarves can protect the face against Chicago winds and mitts ensure that you don’t have to walk around with hands in your pockets all day! Alternatively, you can always invest in an edgier winter accessory.

2. Tea! Coffee! Hot chocolate! All of these things seem ten times better in the winter!

The key to staying warm is not about trapping heat inside your body since letting a little heat out is essential in keeping yourself warm. When it comes to blankets, the more the better! Make sure you put knitted and looser fabrics underneath and duvets on top. For more tips on how to sleep better, check out these apps.
