The holiday season is now over and Winter is approaching… this is a great time to boost your immune system and generally be healthier!
Some of us let diet and healthy eating habits fall by the wayside. Often, given the weather, exercise is sacrificed for warm nights spent indoors. With shorter days and colder weather, finding the motivation to stay healthy and active can be difficult. And this can lay the foundation for a weakened immune system, exposing us to illnesses. Here are some useful tips to help keep your health on top form:
Boost your Vitamin C intake. Vitamin C helps keep your immune system healthy and can help reduce the length and severity of a cold. To get the benefits, make sure you eat plenty of Vitamin C rich foods on a daily basis. Lemons and oranges are all in season right now and are packed full with vitamin C. Add lemon juice to cold or hot water for a tasty drink.
Get outside and get moving. According to research1, people tend to gain three to five kg on average during the winter months.When it’s cold and wet, you would be very tempted to stay inside in the warmth. But don’t get caught in that trap, you need to get outside! You need to expose your skin to natural daylight to boost your levels of Vitamin D. This is crucial to keep your bones and your immune system healthy. You also need to expose your eyes to daylight to help regulate your mood and sleep.
Eat your greens. We know that vegetables are good for us, but winter in particular is the perfect time to enjoy some dark leafy greens. Spinach and kale for example, are great source of vitamins and minerals to keep your body in shape during the winter months. One way to boost your vitamin intake is Nikken’s Organic KVB® Natural Food Mix – Chocolate flavour.This is a healthy meal replacement mix with organic Moringa, organic pea protein, organic vegetables, prebiotics and probiotics.
Sleep better. Sleep is important at any time of the year regardless the season.In the winter season, when the days are shorter,your body will naturally want to sleep longer and will adjust its rhythm to the hours of daylight. Use the longer evenings to relax before bedtime. Take a break from all electronic devices and read a book or spend quality time with your family. Try to go to bed as early as possible to give your body enough rest during the times it craves it the most.
Keep your brain engaged. Mental health wellbeing is as important as our physical wellbeing during the winter months. Keep yourself occupied by making plans like booking up a spring/summer holiday or even better; plan your Valentine’s Day, which is around the corner.
