Winter is coming. No, not referring to Game of Thrones. Try the fact that it's now below 50 degrees outside. Guess what? It's only going to get colder from here.

If you're not ready to deal with being consistently cold for the next 9 months, try these tricks on for size. If they work, awesome! If not? Hey, there's no harm in trying, right? If there's even a chance I may get warm, I'll try anything.

    Layer Up

    If you're someone who finds themselves constantly shivering during the winter months, make sure you're always wearing plenty of layers.

    Try wearing a cami, a long-sleeve shirt, and maybe a sweater poncho, cardigan, or even a cute wintery kimono.

    Can't stress it enough: layers, layers, layers!

    Avoid Cold Food and Drinks

    Ever eat ice cream and instantly get a chill? Yeah, it's not smart to indulge in winter if you're always cold. All you're going to do is make it worse.

    Best to stay away from iced coffee drinks and the like also.

    Make Sure Your Feet Are Covered

    Some people can wear slip-ons, flats, and shoes like that during the winter. To ensure you stay warm, make sure you're feet are covered at all times. A lot of people don't wear socks with flats (although they look so much cuter that way), but if you're always cold, stick to booties and boots for the season.

    Always Wear a Hat

    This should go without saying because it's common knowledge at this point, but wear a hat when you head out in the mornings.

    Easier said than done especially if you just curled or straightened your hair (ladies), but at least you'll be warm.

    Ginger Tea

    Ginger tea is known for warming the body. There's something about ginger that increases blood flow thus improving the body's circulation. The better circulation you have, the warmer you are.

    To be honest, though, any hot beverage will warm you up for a short while, at least. But, ginger tea will definitely prolong that feeling.
