5 Tips To Prepare For A Healthy Winter
Where is that old snow shovel? Will your heating unit stay strong and functional through the cold months? Are you ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations?
We work so hard to ensure that our homes and wallet are ready for the chilly weather and exciting festivities ahead. However, too often we forget that our bodies need just as much attention when it comes to winter preparation.
That’s right. Your body needs a little help if it is going to stay happy and healthy throughout the next few months. But how can you help it? Here are a few tips to make sure your body is as ready for winter as your home is.
1. Don’t Skip Your Workouts
It is very important to stay consistent with your exercise routine before and during the winter months for a few reasons.
For starters, your body will be working hard to generate the energy needed to keep you nice and warm during the coldest winter days. Being active regularly will help increase blood flow throughout your body, ultimately raising your body temperature and giving you a reprieve from the cold.
Furthermore, sticking to a regular exercise routine can also support your immune system. One studyhas shown that regularly participating in moderate exercises like walking, biking, or jogging can help to improve the circulation of immune cells throughout the body. This ultimately helps the body detect and evade threats more efficiently. What’s more? Exercising daily can help you lose weight, which is also known to be beneficial for the immune system.
2. Enjoy Immune-Boosting Foods
When it comes to boosting your immune system, getting plenty of exercise isn’t the only thing you can do. You also want to pay attention to your diet. Cutting out processed foods and replacing them with healthier whole food options will help keep your body, including the immune system, as healthy as possible. But if you want to take it a step further, you can also start including immune-boosting foods into your meal plan. Here are some of our favorites.
- Dark chocolate
- Sweet potatoes
3. Focus On Your Skincare Routine
Your skin is another part of your body that is often heavily impacted by winter weather. Now is the time to evaluate your skincare routine and make appropriate adjustments to fit the colder and dryer conditions.
Most importantly, you will want to make sure to continue using sunscreen as those harmful UV rays are still present even when the sun is being hidden behind clouds. Additionally, avoid dry, flaky skin by ensuring your routine focuses on moisturizing and softening the skin.
4. Be Mindful of Your Mental Health
For many people, the colder weather and reduction in sunlight that come with the winter months can lead to more frequent feelings of depression or anxiety. In fact, it happens to so many of us that it even has a name – the winter blues. When it comes to protecting your mental health during the winter, now is the best time to start. Begin by incorporating mindful, stress-relieving activities like meditation or journaling into your day. Additionally, make sure to get plenty of vitamin D, which is beneficial for both your mental health and your immune system.
5. Take A Superfood Supplement
When it comes to improving your health, superfoods will always be here to help. While you always have the option of adding superfoods like acai and cacao to your meal plan, it is more efficient and convenient to find a supplement that is made with these nutritionally impressive foods.
When it comes to finding the perfect superfood supplement to keep your body healthy throughout the winter, you will want to find one that uses foods like medicinal mushrooms and organic Wild Microalgae® that are known to give your immune system a boost.
What is organic Wild Microalgae? It’s a rare form of blue-green algae that contains all 20 standard amino acids, 13 vitamins, over 60 trace minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and more. All of which are nutrients that the systems in your body, including the immune system, need to function optimally.
