Are you a construction worker, civil engineer, or a simply a mason? Is having to work long hours outside part of your job description? Then you should wear the battle gear before you step outside. The freezing cold is eternally battling against you. If you are lucky you will just lose with a mere blue ear. If you aren’t that lucky after all, then the nasty frostbite is the next worse thing. Should you really be taking any risks? We think not. Hence the prescribed protective gear. Every part of your body should be adequately covered and concealed. Take this to heart: no need to be a martyr to your own ignorance.
These areas must be covered
Head is an area which is really susceptible to the cold and dampness. You need to be extra careful when you cover it up. If you’re old head covering is worn out or coming apart at the seams, then you should either make a run to the store right now or order one online. Then you should worry about the torso. Get yourself a good parka, at least one of those faux fur ones which have been treated artificially to insulate from most ranges of cold. Where to buy earmuff in Singapore? We recommend trying it online.
What else is there?
Well if you are running outside in the early hours of the morning, or if you are working, then you might want some form of distraction: to get direct your thoughts towards ignoring the cold. Why not buy ear plugs? These provide protection and safety against dampness, cold and even dust (cold and dust both could assault you simultaneously if you are into construction work). These are inserted into the ear canal and it is supposed to preserve the inner ear from any of the aforementioned foreign bodies. Sounds handy, doesn’t it? The real problem here is your willingness/unwillingness to cooperate. If you are conscious of the fact that you are otherwise putting your health and life at risk by not taking precaution-measures, then you have solved half of your problem. As opposed to this, if you are suffering from total obliviousness as to the dire conditions that you put yourself through each day, then nothing can be done to help you (you will have to wake yourself up).
The end of the story
Don’t be eager to write an untimely end to your own story, take advice, be cautious and be prepared to upgrade your gear as often as you can. Looking after yourself is rewarding in so many ways: you don’t need to even start imagining the hospital in house care bill after you foolishly lure your way into a frostbite or auditory degenerative disease due to exposure.
