The scientific reason behind why you feel cold all the time

There’s always that one person who seems to be complaining about the cold even when it feels like a normal temperature for everyone else.


What gives? Turns out there's a few reasons why some feel the cold more than others.

1. You’re not exercising enough

It seems simple enough but it turns out that regular exercise helps to deliver oxygen and vital nutrients around the body. This will help your body to maintain a constant temperature. So we guess it’s time to pop on your running shoes. 

2. You’re too thin

This one is pretty simple, if you are overly thin you can lack adequate amounts of body fat which would insulate you from the cold. If you aren’t eating much food, then your metabolism may struggle to create enough heat. 

3. You don’t sleep enough

It turns out if you are tired your body will feel cold more than if you were to be well-rested. Make sure you are getting enough sleep a night! 

4. You have an iron deficiency

This is one of the most common reason that you feel cold all the time. A lack of iron can heighten your perception of the cold. 

5. You're dehydrated

Losing as little as 2% of your body’s normal water can take it told on your energy levels and make you feel cold. A lack of water in your system can cause your blood pressure to drop. This can cause a person to feel cold, headaches, fatigue and loss of concentration. 

There you go, if have a friend who is constantly complaining about the cold this may be why.
