1/7Reasons you always feel cold
Are you one of those who tend to shiver when no one around them is feeling cold? If this happens to you quite frequently, then you must not ignore it. This is because there could be a lot of issues that can lead to this continual feeling of coldness. Our body relies on various chemical reactions to keep its warmth and when there is a significant deficiency of essential nutrients, it may make you feel cold all the time.
2/7Low levels of iron
LOW LEVELS OF IRON: Iron content is important for the smooth functioning of our body. This critical nutrient of our body helps red blood cells to carry oxygen in the body. This ensures that each cell in the body works properly. If there is an iron deficiency in the body, it will impact this process and you might feel cold all the time.
3/7Poor blood circulation
POOR BLOOD CIRCULATION: If you find that it’s just your hands and feet that stay cold all the time, it indicates poor blood circulation. Also, it should be noted that if you feel cold generally on one side of the body, you might be suffering from a heart disease, which is referred to as atherosclerosis.
4/7Seasonal affective disorder
SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER: Commonly known as SAD, this condition is often related to depression, anxiety and fatigue, especially in winter. According to health experts, SAD tends to lower dopamine in the body and you may become too sensitive to cold weather.
5/7Not sleeping properly
NOT SLEEPING PROPERLY: Mostly, body temperature drops when you don’t get a good night’s sleep. Lack of sleep impacts the nervous system and also brain’s regulatory mechanism that regulates heat. It could affect metabolism and can make you feel sluggish too.
YOUR GENDER: This fact may surprise you but according to scientists, women feel colder than men. They conducted an experiment wherein heat-sensing cameras were used to take snapshots of their body temperature. It found out that on average, women were 3 degree C colder than men. Another study also found out that women can efficiently cope up with hot weather conditions but when it’s about cold temperature, they are less likely to tolerate it.
YOUR WEIGHT: If you’re underweight, you have a lack of body fat that could help to insulate heat and could keep you warm. If you are overweight, it reduces heat loss around the abdomen area but not in your hands and feet. Studies also say that obese people tend to have a lower core body temperature. Hence, you should try to maintain an ideal body weight.
