The guru then proceeded to reply and contrary to what many might assume the first thing you do is opening all the windows.

''When it's cold, it's actually a great idea – when it's below freezing cause the air is dry.

''Dry all the window frames and everything off […]. You must ventilate.''

Ann also advised to invest in at least one heat source – whether that's a portable heater or a little electric fire.
