Autumn is here and the weather is no longer as warm as you want it to be. As much as we would love to have summer back, it would be wise to prepare yourself for the cold weather by keeping warm! How do you do that though? In this week’s The Element Apartment Homes Blog, we’ve got a few tips for you on how you can stay warm during the colder months here in Mt Prospect, IL. If you’ve lived here for your entire life, you may know much, but you may still pick up something from these tips!


Layering is an essential part of keeping warm. Logically, having more clothing on your body will help keep the warmth closer to your body. Layering also allows you to remove layers as you move from the cold outdoors to the warm interiors of buildings.  


The extremities are one of the hardest parts of your body to keep warm. Thankfully, there are accessories that can help you stave off the cold. Gloves, hats, and scarves are all good choices for accessories that are sure to keep you warm. Investing in a good pair of either of those items will make your outdoor experience more comfortable, especially if you’re taking public transportation or spending more time than normal outdoors. The best part? They’re removable. You can easily take off those accessories if you get too warm! 

Hot Drinks

Sure, dressing in many layers and wearing a pair of gloves can keep you warm, but nothing helps more than sipping on a nice hot drink. Cocoa, coffee, and tea are all good choices to sip on when you’re out and about in the cold or warming up after coming in. We suggest investing in a mug or cup that keeps liquids warmer for longer, as cold weather tends to make hot drinks cool down too fast. 


We hope these tips help you keep warm during the fall. If you’ve got any comments or tips you’d like to share, leave us a comment!
