How to Stay Warm on Your Winter Commute

Thursday, 4 October 2018  |  Amy

When commuting to work, you can go from freezing winds on a frosty morning outside to the stuffy heat of an overcrowded bus or train as you take public transport to your destination. Thankfully, there are ways in which you can better control the temperature without constantly needing to apply and remove countless layers while you travel. We're here to help you learn How to Stay Warm on Your Winter Commute!

Cold Hands While Travelling

How Hand Warmers Can Help

Hand warmers come in a wide range of styles, and each type can help you to target heat where you need it most. Gone are the days where you need to constantly wrap up to head out of the door, only then to feel the need to take off your coat, scarf, and jumper as soon as you emerge onto public transport. Of course, we're not suggesting that you forego your winter coat or leave behind your gloves if you're en route to the bus stop, train station, or Underground; however, with a hand warmer or two you will be much better equipped to control the temperature without worrying about going from one extreme temperature to another.

There are many hand warmers out there, and here at Health and Care we stock quite a wide selection for you to choose from. To help you find the right style of hand warmer for you, we've selected some of our favourites, which we'll explore in some detail below.

HotRox Electronic Hand Warmer

This handy little device fits snugly in the palm of your hand, and provides instant heat at the flick of a switch. The HotRox device provides up to six hours of heat when fully charged, which should be enough to get you from A to B and back again on your daily commute!

The HotRox Hand Warmer is also easy to recharge, plugging into a USB port or mains adapter. This also makes it ideal for use on the go, so whether you're travelling for work or leisure you can always keep your HotRox to hand.
