5 Ways to Warm Your Feet
Published: 01/19/2013

You don’t have to be getting married to experience cold feet. Often this condition is simply due to cold weather or exposed feet and toes, but some people can experience cold feet even when the weather is very warm – and some have cold feet year-round.

If you tend to get cold feet, discuss your symptoms with your doctor to rule out any underlying medical conditions. Circulatory disorders such as Raynaud’s disease, anemia, and diabetes may be to blame and should be addressed if they are determined to be the cause. If no medical condition is found, try the following – each can help to prevent or lessen your symptoms:

  1. Sprinkle a small amount of ground cayenne pepper in your socks and shoes.
  2. Make time to get regular physical exercise to help improve your circulation.
  3. Quit smoking: Nicotine constricts blood vessels, disturbing normal circulation.
  4. Wear shoes that are comfortable and not too tight in order to avoid restricted circulation.
  5. Don’t forget the most obvious solution: a relaxing foot soak in warm (not hot) water followed by a pair of warm socks!
