Posted: Updated:

As the temperatures take a turn for the worse and the entire HuffPost UK office drowns in what we have creatively dubbed the "flunami", what better topic for our 'weekly wellbeing' segment than the cold weather?

From burning calories to reducing inflammation these are sure to get you feeling positive about the cold climate. But admittedly, we still can't wait for summer to arrive.
