It’s cold outside and other musings

It’s February. So what do we expect, right? I believe climate change and global warming are real. But that doesn’t meant I expect February to be a pleasant walk by a soothing stream. I reserve the right to complain though. I grew up in the Southern U.S. so I prefer warm weather. I don’t complain of the heat. Haha, as stated, I reserve the right to complain about the cold.

There are hacks to stay warmish. I am currently wearing booties AND house shoes. I am steps away from donning a knit cap. Keeping my feet (and hands) warm goes a long way in feeling warm all over. Head coverings also are fabulous for keeping your body warm. Heat rises, you know. It escapes out the top of your head. Putting a covering over it slows the escape hatch.

Keeping in mind that I have zero medical training, I believe I can handle temperature fluctuations better since I started taking iodine. Our thyroid is fueled by iodine and it’s our thyroid that regulates body temperature. When it’s hungry, it doesn’t function efficiently. **Side note – do you function at your best when you’re hungry?** Cross my heart, the year I started taking liquid iodine periodically as a supplement, I handled cold weather much better. My hands and feet weren’t absolutely freezing all the time. Do your own research about thyroid health and iodine. I did mine and now winters are 1000% more tolerable.




With February comes Valentine’s Day. So here you go, Happy Valentine’s Day. I recommend doing some research on the origins of this holiday too.

Common theme for this blog post – do research.

You don’t have to believe anything, or everything.

With that, I wish you peace, good health and wealth. Stay warm and have some chocolate.
