4. Indoor Heater
This one is obvious. Keeping your place warm throughout the day and night can ensure you do not get the shivers nor feel tired. The best way to get the most out of your heater is to put it on a timer to turn on before you come home from work and/or to turn it on before you get ready to take a shower and head to bed. This ensures you can go to bed warm as possible.
5. Spicy foods
Spicy foods your thing? Then this tip will not only be another adventure to undertake, it will also keep you warm from the inside. Spicy food such as jalapenos get you to sweat, and sweating is great for combating the cold this fall.
So, next time you are shopping, drop a few jalapenos or other spicy food into the basket.
6. Heated Mattress Pad
Honestly, I have never heard of this until now, but the use of a heated mattress pad can keep you warm throughout the night. It fits over the mattress like a sheet and will not bunch up as you move around. It is not a replacement for your sheets, you can still use those.
7. Electric Blanket
This can be a fantastic way to keep the cold at bay during the night when the temperature drops. This might be a better fit for some than the heated mattress as these last longer than the mattress pad.
However, these and the pads can cause fires so please use them with caution.
In the end, Fall is a beautiful time, but it also brings with it trials and tribulations for certain people. Anemia is a serious condition and following these tips along with recommendations from your doctor can help you manage your symptoms this fall. We want you to enjoy the holidays and not feel miserable because of the cold.
