From enjoying outdoor barbeque’ s to cozying up by the fire in the desert, there’s no shortage of pleasures to pursue this winter. But to make the most of these cooler months, it’s best to be prepared for the weather – so here’s 4 tips to help you enjoy the months ahead.
- Optimize Home Air Flow
Despite the break from the summer heat your energy bills may be too high for your liking. Try using the latest from LG’s DUALCOOL models – to keep tabs on how much energy you’re using. After pairing these smart devices with the LG ThinQ app, you can monitor exactly how much energy you’re consuming on a daily basis right on your phone. Plus, the app also shows weekly and monthly statistics as well, giving you long-term insights into your energy consumption.
- Tackle Activity Wear with Ease
Cooler weather means more opportunities for adventures with friends and family. Whether it’s hiking, camping or sitting by the pool, make sure you have the right gear and clothing to support any adventure. Of course, this means there’s more laundry to be done – which can be daunting with certain garments requiring extra care. Instead of puzzling over the best washing cycle for your items, leave the job to smart washers like LG’s ThinQ-enabled models. Just activate the handwash and delicates cycle on the ThinQ app and wait a short time for your outfits to look as good as new. The app even sends you a notification when the laundry’s all done so you know when it’s time to move them to the dryer.
- Boost Your Immune System with Superfoods
Fill up on nourishing food to give your body the nutrients it needs to fight off winter colds. Fresh vitamin C-rich citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits should boost your immune system to help ward off the flu. Another key immunity-boosting ingredient is zinc, so always add nuts and whole grains to your grocery list before heading to the store, as they’re packed with zinc.
Once your fridge and pantry are stocked full with those winter superfoods, it’s equally important to ensure they’re still crisp and juicy when you eat them. Keeping track of your freezer food is easy with a little help from a smart refrigerator like LG’s WiFi-enabled models. Just connect the fridge to the ThinQ app and set expiration dates for your perishable food items. With smart notifications that remind you when your foods need eating by, you’ll be able to relish every bite of your fresh produce as if they’ve come straight from the farm.
- Break the Cycle of the Sore Throat
Along with the flu, a sore throat is another enemy we face seemingly every winter. But this is no coincidence, since the air can dry out your throat making you feel dehydrated, so make sure to keep the liquids flowing by sipping on some warm chamomile tea or sitting down to a hearty bowl of hot chicken soup. On a day when a sore throat feels particularly rough and scratchy and really dampens your mood, take a small teaspoon of honey or, ironically, a cold treat like a popsicle or ice cubes.
Dust is another major contributor to a sore throat. Always remember to air out your furniture and bedding, and beware of the dust hiding in the nooks and crannies of your home. Reduce the presence of allergens in your home and enjoy breathing in cleaner & purer air with LG’s silent and powerful air purifiers. By activating the controls on the ThinQ app, consumers can easily access and control the air purifiers functions from anywhere, so say goodbye to those dust bunnies, and of course, to your runny nose and itchy throat.
