1. Cover Your Head

Body heat is released through the head so you want to keep your head covered whenever possible. A baseball cap is an okay choice, but beanies are a better option as they keep the warm close to the head and are usually made with an insulating material. You can also use a scarf to wrap around or even throw a blanket over your head if that’s all you have.
