Drink plenty of water
There is less moisture in the air during winter so keep your water bottle close by. Hydrating your body can prevent cracks on the skin and get rid of toxins in your system. At least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily is generally recommended.
Boost your immune system
During cold and flu season, you can boost your immune system by eating raw fruits and vegetables that contain various vitamins and minerals. For example, vitamin C is an important vitamin and antioxidant that the body uses to keep you strong and healthy.
Always Eat Seasonal Food
Seasonal foods are in accordance with the nature. They naturally offer higher nutritional content than out of season unripe fruits and vegetables. It is beneficial to eat holistically for your health.
In Winter, turn toward warming foods like carrot, sweet potato, onions and garlic and some spices and seasonings such as ginger, pepper corns and mustard seeds. Eggs, corn and nuts also fall into this warming category.
Commit to exercise
Don’t let the cold weather stop you from moving! Exercise can help control your waistline since holiday feasts are almost there. Some indoor exercises such as yoga and other moderately activities after meals are also good choices of keeping your body active.
Hope everyone stays away from sickness and enjoys the beauty of the seasonal change!
