How to insulate this door?

I checked with my temperature gun and found 10 F difference. This door opens to a space in the attic in between. See the pictures and I want to know the best way to insulate it. Maybe be behind the door as well not just around the corners? I am not sure.

Screw or glue a piece of rigid foam insulation to the door. Also get some weatherstripping to seal off the door so no air can pass around the edges of the door.

You could also replace with an exterior style door, a little more work, better results, would look neater!
