As we approach the heart of winter, and it seems like keeping warm is becoming increasingly harder, especially as the cold night air sets in, we thought we would share with you three ways to beat the winter blues. . .
1) Exercise - Walking is a great way to circulate heat in your body, once the body starts moving and the blood starts flowing you will soon stop thinking about how cold you are. Not only is it a way to keep warm, but it will also help to clear your mind.
2) Prevent Illness – Minimise colds and flus, by getting the flu shot at the beginning of the month in addition to taking some good multivitamins will help to keep the coughs and sniffles away. Model good hygienic practices in front of children and encourage them to do the same to minimise the winter germs spreading.
3) Eat Well - Break away from your traditional winter food like stews and soup, why not try a new type of cuisine. For instance, visiting your nearest Indian restaurant and trying their hottest dish on the menu. Not only will you break out a nice sweat, but you will also get rid of that flu brewing inside of you that won’t seem to leave you.
Exercise, Prevent Illness and Eat Well, are just a few of many ways that will help to beat the winter chills. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you take advantage of the season, gather around camp fires, toast marshmallow, and catch up with family and friends.
