Winter Wellness Tips

Stay healthy and get through the winter months with the below tips:

  1. Resist the temptation of staying inside and go for a short walk to breath some fresh air.
  2. Don’t quit your exercise routine just because the weather is too cold. You can always try indoor activities such as swimming in an indoor pool.
  3. Enjoy winter fruits and vegetables. Cut down on carbohydrates such as bread and pasta and fill your plate with dark leafy greens, winter squash, citrus and pomegranate.
  4. Try hot herbal beverages instead of hot chocolate to cut down on extra calories.
  5. Stay hydrated as cold weather and indoor heating will leave your skin dry and itchy. Drink water and use moisturizers adequate to your skin.
  6. Keep your vitamin D levels under check during winter months as it is essential for the immune system and mood.
  7. Boost your immune system with vitamin C to keep the cold and flu symptoms at bay.
  8. Get enough sleep regardless of the season to feel better and healthy.
