4. Warm up Scandinavian-style. If you have a sauna (lucky duck!), I don’t need to tell you a cold snap is the perfect time to make use of it. But even those of us not blessed with one of those staples of Nordic homes can create our own mock sauna experience. In cultures where saunas are popular, it is typical to alternate between warmth and cold — it’s thought to strengthen the immune system. To try this at home sans sauna, draw a hot bath with a healthy dose of a bracing essential oil such as eucalyptus or spruce. Soak until you feel nice and warm, then jump into a cold shower as long as you can stand it; repeat this rotation several times.
