Cold Feet

Out and about this holiday? Keep warm by remembering this mnemonic:

CLEAN - Keep clothing CLEAN. Dirty clothing will have lower insulation properties.

OVERHEATING – Avoid OVERHEATING. Sweating makes clothing wet and subsequently chills.

LOOSE and in LAYERS – Wear clothing LOOSE and in LAYERS. Trapped air insulates. When working, loosen clothing to allow ventilation and cooling, or remove layers.

Keep clothing DRY. Dry out socks, boots and underclothes in your sleeping bag using body heat.

FIT your clothing properly. Take time to adjust your clothes, especially around ankles, waist, neck, head and wrists.

EXERCISE face, fingers and toes. Regular exercise of these parts keeps the blood circulating.

EAT regularly and keep hydrated. Food is energy – Avoid Alcohol which causes blood to flow near the surface of the skin, thereby losing heat.

TIGHT BOOTS ARE TERRIBLE – They constrict the blood flow, which contributes to cold feet and ultimately to frost-bite. Keep feet dry and keep your boots waterproofed.

Seasons Greetings

The Woodlife Trails Team wishes everyone a very
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
We would also like to extend our thanks to everyone who have come on our courses and supported us on our journey this year including the National Trust at Hatfield Forest and the Vivobarefoot team. A special thanks to our assistants and Diploma participants.
