Things You Can Do To Keep Warm in Cold Weather

As fun winter is, the cold can be quite crippling. While building snowmen is nice, no one likes blue fingernails, uncontrollable shivering, and purplish lips. But, how do you combat nature’s wrath? With any of the items on this list. Here, you’ll find four things you could do (and one that you shouldn’t do) to keep yourself warm. Good Luck!

 

Warm Your Insides 

We get cold when our blood’s temperature decreases. Because of that, the most direct way to get yourself warmer is to increase your core temperature. How do you do such a seemingly impossible task? By drinking something hot. Don’t forget that you get bonus points if you already know how to make a perfect hot chocolate. Also, don’t forget to breathe in the steam from your cup before drinking.

Dress Right

Most people mindlessly dress in layers whenever they feel cold, but it’s always the case that they still complain about the cold. That’s not because the weather is impossibly cold, it’s because they don’t layer up correctly. The key to dressing in layers is to start with a tight shirt and tuck it in. That way, they’ll stick to the skin, which means that they’ll trap the heat and warm you up. After that, reach for all the baggy hoodies that you want. 

Use the Help of A Higher Power

If it gets too cold, it may be time to turn on your electric heater. In no time, it will reach full power and you’ll start feeling the same way a piece of toast does. What if you weren’t at home? What if you were traveling somewhere without electricity? Well, the10pro.com suggests that you consider investing in portable electric heaters, as they are probably the most effective when it comes to combating the cold in the shortest time possible. Make sure that you look over a couple of reviews so you can figure out what the best fit for you is.

Seal Your Windows and Doors

If you’re still cold after drinking a gallon of tea, firing up a space heater, and wearing 5+ layers, chances are, there’s a cold draft sneaking through the gap under your front/back door, or through the gaps around your window panels. But, how do you fix that? A permanent solution would be to purchase foam tape and stick it under the areas where the draft is coming from. But, who would go out in this freezing cold? Just fill the gaps with some rags until you’re warm enough to leave the house. 

Don’t Drink Alcohol

Just don’t. It will make you feel warm, but what really happens is that it decreases body temperature. So, just save your whiskey for later.

So, as you can see, there are a lot of things you could do to keep yourself warm. These five things are only the tip of the iceberg – it’s a bad analogy, but you get what we’re saying. Our main point is, don’t lose hope, you’ll find warmth eventually. With that being said, we hope that you’ve already started trying out our strategies. Before you go, remember not to keep going from extremely hot areas, to extremely cold ones all of a sudden, you’ll end up getting a cold.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

Published

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

Commenting on the SIM registration deadline, the General Manager Regional Sales and Distribution, South, MTN Ghana,Abubakar Mohammed said, “we are encouraging our customers to register immediately to avoid long queues at registration centers and subsequent blocking of SIM cards after the deadline.”

“Customers who are not sure of their status can check their registration status by dialing *400#. “B-Cap Yes” means a customer is fully registered”.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
