Cold stress is the stress caused by cold.
We have a constant body temperature of 36.6 degrees centigrade and our body needs energy to maintain it. Any change in the surrounding temperature results in internal processes trigering with the only purpose to maintain this constant level of body warmth.
If we get exposed to cold for a long period of time we loose too much energy to keep our body temperature constant and this affects all other vital processes (any process needs energy).
Once our immune system becomes weak all viruses and bacteria around feel invited to a party. The result is that first we feel down, demotivated and at the end of the day we can get ill.
Here are some basic steps we need to do if we want to address effectively cold stress. Even if we go to the shop just opposite of the street cold can seriously affect us (especially during winter).
Even for the shortest exposures to cold - take them always with you.

Put your legs and arms in hot water with sea salt for at least 15 minutes. The easiest way to do it is to take a wash basin, fill it with hot water (at least 40 but not more than 60 degrees centigrade), put crystals of sea salt in the basin and put your legs and arms in the water. The hotter the water the better the effect (pay attention to not burn yourself, though)
