We all have that one friend who is constantly cold. Maybe he or she frequently asks to turn up the heat or keeps a jacket handy on even the warmest of days. Perhaps your friend complains about poor circulation and cold hands or feet.

Science says there's likely a lifestyle-related reason your friend is habitually cold, but the reason can vary from person to person. Maybe it's related to exercise or diet, or it could be that he or she is too stressed.

Regardless of what may be causing it, it's clear that this cold feeling can't be pleasant. And, while it may be worth seeing a doctor if the feeling is too uncomfortable or consistent, we think there are some kind gestures a friend could offer along the way.
