3 ways to stay warm in Toronto this fall

The worst part of the Fall isn’t so much the rainy wetness or the constant dark nights, it’s the cold that pierces all your clothes and settles in your bones. This is the grumpy time of year for everyone, because everyone’s cold cold cold, all the time, everyday! The best ways to live during the fall are finding the best ways to warm up your body and sharing them with your friends. On the bright side, Toronto is a place with really fantastic ways to stay warm and keep your body comfortable!

Drink natural, eco-friendly hot chocolate

Everyone knows that one of the best things to do when you’re cold is to drink hot chocolate, and ChocoSol, at 1131 St. Clair. W, is easily one of the best places in town for it. This all-natural, eco-friendly company has the vision of being a sustainable and environmentally responsible company providing the best chocolate they possibly can, and they absolutely deliver. With over 20 varieties of chocolate in the building, every time you go will be different, and their hot chocolate is hand-made to perfection.

Go out for some fantastic spicy food

The best thing about Toronto is its variety, and when it comes to spicy food, Toronto has tons of great options. Basically, whatever style of food you’re looking for has an accompanying “super spicy option,” so whether you’re interested in going for the “Very Spicy Soup” at Emperor Hot Pot, or some “20-Chili Curry” at Salad King, Toronto has you covered. With all the great options out there, you may be able to eat at a new place every week, trying your luck with the spiciest food in town!

Have a relaxing stay at a spa and go for a steam bath

Finally, the perfect thing to do on a really cold day is to treat your body right and have a great steam. There’s nothing else at all like getting a great massage, then a relaxing soak in a sauna or steam bath. Go to a place like Elmwood Spa to have an all-inclusive experience that’ll make you feel great, or a more traditional style spa like Hammam spa for a more rustic and naturalistic location. Whatever it takes to get you to relax, calm your mind and spirit, and most importantly, warm up! Treating yourself is always underrated, so get out there and make your body as comfortable as it can be in the cold!

Erin Cardone

Born on the Prairies, Erin Cardone grew up knowing there was more to life than canola fields and AAA Alberta Angus. So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
