Try to stay in a small room. Get out the warm clothing, plus a blanket. Keep legs warm.
Simply staying in bed could be a good way to insulate. Make sure you eat and drink enough to keep energy up. Think hibernate like a bear in its den.
Take care.

@Mickyboy it’s a difficult situation for many. You should be eligible for the £400 discount that we will all get - this will go automatically against the bill for the house. If you’re over pension age I think the winter fuel payment will be more this year. Have a chat with Citizens Advice to make sure you’re getting everything you’re entitled to.
Extra layers, keeping as active as possible will also help.
Here’s hoping for a mild winter.

My husband used to really suffer from the cold and had a couple of pairs of salopettes, which he wore over his long johns. Ski wear is great for keeping warm(you might be able to get hold of some at a charity shop).
As well as the £400, there will be an extra PIP payment.
Citizens advice can help re anything further.
