Cold hands can halt productivity for me, so I want to talk about ways to prevent cold hands. When the winter weather is brutally frigid, my cold numb fingertips will actually turn a purplish shade of white. I Googled this and self-diagnosed myself with Raynaud’s disease. Due to the frightening sight of my corpse-like digits, I try to prevent cold hands whenever possible.
Ways to Prevent Cold Hands
As I mentioned above, cold hands can be a symptom of Raynaud’s disease. Don’t be like me and let Google play doctor. If you have ice cold hands all the time, seek medical attention before writing it off as nothing serious. Once you have determined the cause of your cold fingers symptoms, there are many items out there to help prevent cold hands.
Fingerless Gloves – It’s hard to get your stuff done with a cold index finger. Thank goodness for fingerless gloves. I wear these babies indoors since my hands are always cold. Even though they don’t fully cover my fingers, they help provide warmth and allow me to go about my day.
I like these with the ‘mitten flap’ because if I do have to run outside for anything I can quickly cover my fingertips without any trouble.
Texting Gloves – The winter weather shouldn’t kill your texting game. If you need to reply to a text while braving the elements, do not risk exposing a fingertip to do so. Instead, use texting gloves to stay warm while you re

Full on Mittens – Correct me if I am wrong, but my thought is fingers together may generate more body heat. So screw doing things and just rock mittens. You might not be able to function normally, but maintaining warmth is top priority for people who are always cold.
These are the best, softest mittens I have ever owned. As soon as you slide your hand in, it’s like you’re putting your hand between two fluffy polar bear bellies. You’re totally useless while wearing them so forget your phone, keys, or attempting to pick anything up. BUT your hands will be super cozy.
Best Gloves for Cold Weather – If your hands are always cold, you know there is chilly weather, and then there is downright we-should-be-hibernating weather. Thankfully, people know we need the best extreme weather gloves in some areas of the world.
These on the right are waterproof, adjustable, and even have a zipper pocket for storage. They also have grippy fingers so you won’t be totally useless while trying to keep your hands warm. (But, you have to admit, they’re not as cute and cozy looking as the mittens.) 😉
Running Gloves for Cold Weather – First, if you are running in cold weather, I admire your dedication. Make sure you properly glove yourself for your adventures. There are tons of great running gloves to choose from, leaving more room for style preferences. I have quite a few pairs of these seen below so I can coordinate my workout outfits.
Hand Warmers – Once cold blue hands occur, warm them up quickly with hand warmers. These magical little sacks are perfect for warming up most body parts.
It’s best to stock up and keep them on hand in the car, in your purse, with camping gear, and I even keep some in my sock drawer. You just never know when the feet might need a little love too.
Beyond the tiny warming packages, there are wireless hand warmers. That’s right. Rechargeable by USB. Remain productive and stare at adorableness while your hands stay warm.
I am not sure if anyone can cure cold hands, but we sure can have fun trying to prevent them.
