Tips for going out in freezing weather

Devon polar explorer Ann Daniels offers these hot tips and more for enjoying this month’s Arctic temperatures.

  • One mistake lots of people make is to wrap up warm with gloves and hats and scarves then go out with thin socks and trainers on
  • If you have boots you should wear them and thick woolly socks or even two pairs – but make sure not to constrict the blood flow to your feet
  • You should wear layers of clothing so that warm air can circulate between the layers
  • You lose a lot of heat through your neck so a scarf is important. “If you don’t keep your torso warm your body will go into survival mode and draw heat from your extremities to the heart and lungs.
