HAPPY FEET !
In order to keep the feet warm, you have to focus on your whole body. When the body gets cold, it puts priority on keeping the heart, brain, and vital organs warm. This action reduces heat flow to the hands and feet. This is why your hands and feet feel cold first even when your core feels warm.
3 TIPS FOR WARM FEET
WEAR A HAT
To keep the feet warm, wear a hat! The head is like a chimney. Large amounts of body heat escape through your head. Covering it prevents excessive heat loss and circulates retained heat throughout the body.
The layering principle works for socks as well. A thinner, fitted sock closest to your foot and a thicker sock on top, performs 3 functions:
- Absorbs moisture from the foot
- Helps to trap a maximum amount of air
- Protects against blisters
WET FEET ARE COLD FEET
During low activity, one foot perspires roughly 3 ml of moisture per hour, while heavy activity raises it up to approximately 15 ml. During very heavy work, the perspiration level can exceed 30 ml per hour. Wool fibers absorb moisture remarkably well, and can hold up to 30% of their own weight in moisture without feeling wet. Wool is exothermic which means it actually creates heat even when wet!
