TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY FOR THE WINTER
I know what you’re thinking: ‘winter health tips?’ Although you may believe that you can religiously follow the same health and lifestyle techniques throughout the year, there are some winter tips that you need to know. Not only are you more likely to gain weight due to the holidays and lack of exercise, you’re simply more likely to feel under the weather, and that’s just awful – especially around the holidays. But fear not, because if you follow this advice, you’ll be ready for (nearly) everything the cold winter throws at you. (Apart from maybe snowballs and I can’t help you there). Keep reading below for tips to stay healthy for the winter.
1. Get some exercise
Going to the gym and keeping up your usual exercise habits may seem like an ordeal in winter. You may not feel like it, but really try to stay active. Not staying active could make you start packing on the pounds so don’t give in to the winter “blahs”.
You can always get in some exercise at your local gym or take a fun gym group class. Also, there are plenty of outside winter activities in which to get involved. How about some of these great ideas:
– winter walks with your family
– ice skating
– cross-country skiing
– build a fort and have a snowball fight
– ice fishing
And that’s just to name a few. Come up with some creative ways to spend some time in nature to enjoy the clean, crisp air. Not only will you feel great, but you may even see some beautiful wildlife. Wrap up warm!
2. Eat healthy
In winter, eating warm and fulfilling food is a really important part of staying as healthy as possible. Make sure to have a hot and filling breakfast to get your day started because it’s very important to do that. For more information on how important it is to eat breakfast, read my article “Breakfast – The Most Important Meal”. Warm foods such as soup can help to lift you up if you’re feeling ill, so make sure you’re giving your body those all-important nutrients.
3. Don’t let the fact it gets dark sooner effect your health and ruin your sleeping habits
Yes, when the winter comes, you may look outside at 4:00 p.m. and feel like it’s midnight. But don’t be fooled into wanting to crawl into bed because that will may you feel worse.
Keep your bedtime at a similar time and wake up at (near enough) the same time every day. This will help you manage to break out of that winter sluggishness. It’s tempting, I know, to want to head for bed. But don’t let your sleeping habits ruin your winter fun!
4. Get your medication sorted beforehand
If you catch a cold, flu, or other winter-related illness, you’re probably going to need some type of medication to help you ride it out. Don’t let your illness go for too long before trying to get a handle on it. Stock up on medicines now. You can also create customized medication based on how your body works, so stock up rather than waiting!
The flu is a serious matter and can even be deadly. Regardless of a person’s age or health status, the flu can be quite problematic. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported that there were nearly 80,000 deaths due to influenza in the U.S. last year. They urge anyone six months and older to obtain a flu vaccine every year. Did you know the flu season can begin as early as September and last until May? It’s best to obtain a flu vaccine early since it takes two weeks for it to protect you. Even if you get a flu vaccine late, it can still help.
5. Wash your hands regularly and keep hand sanitizer close
Another basic health tip, is washing your hands regularly to prevent the spread of germs which you can pick up in many places during the winter. Keep hand sanitizer in your bag, purse or coat pocket, so that you have it ready when you need it during the day. You’ll thank yourself when you’re cold- and flu-free, and also free to enjoy your weekends without a box of tissues at hand.
