Winter Health Tips

by | Jan 2, 2014 | Uncategorized

1. Get outside – dress warmly in layers and enjoy this season! Locate fun activities to keep spirits up.
2. Moisturize your skin – try using pure shea butter, melted in your hands and massaged in to help protect skin from cold winds, nose blowing and overall dry air.
3. Use a humidifier – humidity in the air can help reduce the build up of static electricity that can be problematic in dry environments.
4. Hydrate – drink plenty of water.
5. Cook – Cook plenty; hungry appetites, socializing and frozen soups help a lot for the days when you might feel under the weather.
6. Light candles – Candles create a magical feeling in the dark early evening and help us appreciate our inner world.
7. Fast – If you have caught cold and lack an appetite, do not force yourself to eat, rest and recuperate with hot fluids, tisanes, broths, light soups.
8. Supplement – make use of the supplements you have at home; probiotics, vitamin C, multivitamins and omega 3 can help provide some of the nutritional support to stay feeling well.
9. Laugh – snuggle in for a humour-filled feel-good movie.
10. Craft – enjoy making stuff.
11. Brew spicy tisanes – boil water and add some of your favorite spices in the tea ball or bag, a big pot will fill the air with the inviting and warm scent. Try cardamom, cinnamon, orange rinds, and star anise.
12. Sleep – Profit from the morning light by getting enough sleep to awaken with the sunrise.
