Great ways to stay warm while gaming !

As the cold snap hits the UK its harder and harder to stay warm so here's a few tips we use to stay hot in the freezing cold

1. Laptops and their chargers 
So instead of placing them on a table don't be afraid to use them on your lap pretty simple idea i know but the power/ battery pack will get hot perfect for the cold nights.  also use the power brick on the charger to keep the feet warm ( yup it works tried and tested many many times ) 

2. monster PCs 

If your anything like us you'll have a monster PC hidden in the corner of the room the type that needs a massive heat sink to keep cool well in this cold weather you wont need to worries about that so much just turn it on and huddle around it singing the 12 days of Christmas. next is  usb drink warmers  these are something Ive  never really tried though Ive heard mixed things so its really buy at your own risk 

3. draft excluders 
 Sounds old fashioned but this does help if you don't have  one a towel / rug / old blanket will do the same thing.  make sure its at the front door and back door as well as the bedroom door as well. make sure as well when making your bed to tuck the blankets in all the way around the mattress ( sounds stupid but this will help ) then the mandatory extra blankets with hot water bottles. 

5.  spicy food hot or cold and cooked breakfasts
Bit of a no Brian-er  really curry at night and fry ups in the morning. this will make you feel full and warmer for longer. also ready to eat cooked spicy chicken is great for sandwiches and snacks, also  a good tip is a little chili source with the morning fried eggs sounds crazy but it will help keep you warm.

6. Pets 
If you have a cat or small dog let them sit on your lap in the evenings even if you put a blanket down first its like having a hot water bottle on your lap even if you have a 10 stone German Shepard their great for keeping the toes warm!  


well I hope these ideas help if you have any other ideas let me know !
