Four Ways to Beat the Winter Gloom         

Winter is coming, and that means that our mornings are slowly becoming colder, the evenings a lot darker, earlier, and, of course, colds, flu and allergies tend to flare up. This can result in a lot of confusion given the current COVID-19 pandemic, which means that avoiding the sniffles becomes a priority.

Given everything going on now, it may be worth your while to invest in an air conditioner that saves on energy costs while properly heating your home and purifying the air to prevent colds and flu.

It is not all doom and gloom, though. There are some things that you can look forward to this winter.

The fresh cool breeze while exercising

With the lockdown restrictions being lifted and more lenience has been given for exercise, we can look forward to a morning run in the fresh winter air.

Research has found that training in winter burns more calories than training during the warmer months. This is because your body uses more energy to heat up its core, so bring on the cardio and start working on your summer body.

But remember, moving from extreme heat to extreme cold is one of the biggest causes of colds. Make sure you use an air conditioner that can navigate between the two temperatures to prevent getting sick. The LG ArtCool features an Inverter Compressor that allows it to adjust to different temperatures quickly and easily with the simple click of a button, giving you the freedom to seamlessly change between temperatures.

 

Comfort food

Lockdown has given us the time to work on our culinary skills and become the ultimate chef. Now that it’s a bit colder, we can start cooking our all-time favourite comfort foods to keep us warm. You can even be adventurous and try out that recipe you’ve been meaning to try but haven’t had the time.

Let’s be honest; there’s nothing better than a juicy oxtail stew with fresh dumplings to warm you up on a chilly day or a delicious butternut soup with freshly baked bread to curl up with after a long day.

 

Prepare your home for winter

Prepare your home to fight the cold and flu battle by investing in an air-purifying air conditioner. Air purification plays an important part in getting rid of nasty germs and, as such, fighting the battle against colds, flu and even allergies.

LG’s ArtCool, for example, sterilises the air around you and eliminates 99% of the bacteria within it in less than an hour. The innovative ioniser features over 3 million ions all tasked with one goal; to keep you and your family safe.

You’ll also need to find a way to properly heat your home during these cold months without increasing your electricity bill, which means your air conditioner needs to be energy efficient. The LG Active Energy Control function button found on all remotes gives you the power to choose your energy consumption with the simple touch of a button.

 

Snuggle up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate 

It is time to start reading those books on your bookshelf and when you are done, why not compile a new reading list to satisfy your bookworm’s craving.

If you are not too keen on reading, there’s always a binge-worthy series you can catch up on that will be sure to keep you busy this season.

So, what are you waiting for? Discover the things that you can look forward to this winter.
