There's no doubt I'm the world's the coldest person
(I only felt vaguely warm was when I had hot flushes!)
and winter is always a struggle, despite ever-increasing layers
of thermal vests, Heat-Tech leggings, cashmere sweaters,
socks scarves gloves hats. . .and that's just to wear in bed!
I eat hearty meals with heating herbs
drink infusions of warming spices
and exercise vigorously
but still feel cold inside.
This year, I discovered Haramaki
which is basically the shape of a stretchy boob tube
worn on your midsection, keeping your lower back
exceptionally snug, and its really REALLY made a difference!
Loosely translated, haramaki comes from the Japanese words hara,
meaning the centre of the body, and maki, meaning ‘to wrap up’
I bought mine on the internet- they're for sale on eBay,
Amazon, and specialised websites and cost around £18.00.
Willing to try anything, I was doubtful it'd be soooo effective
but boy, am I pleased it is.
Inner warmth at last YAY!!
