7 Tips for staying Well this Winter


Winter has arrived with all its harshness, and it has brought with it the seven deranged dwarfs of winter: sickly, sneezy, sniffly, snotty, sleepy, achy, and coughy.





While it would be amazing to think it 100% possible to avoid getting sick, it is unrealistic. However, there are things we can do to help reduce the chances.


Chow Down on Good Stuff

Let's load up on fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains to power up our immune system. Think juicy oranges, vibrant bell peppers, and tasty nuts and seeds! But being winter, staying warm is essential, so make sure you include warm soups and stews that are great for our bodies as they are full of nutrients and easy to digest.




Drink Up

Remember to stay hydrated! Even if you don't feel thirsty, keep sipping on water, herbal teas, and warm broths to keep things flowing. Again, keep it warm. Herbal teas, soups, and even bone broth are great for keeping the body warm and nourishing us.


Get Moving and Grooving

While the temptation to stay snuggled on the lounge is real - it's time to get our bodies moving! Whether it's a dance party in your living room, a home workout, a yoga session, or even a gentle stroll around the block, aiming for 30 minutes of fun exercise most days of the week helps keeps us warm, but alsoi helps our lymphatic system move toxins and waste out of out bodies.





Catch Those Zzz's

It's crucial to snag 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Set up a cozy sleep routine and limit screen time before hitting the hay. Let's make our bedroom a peaceful oasis for some sweet dreams. If you do get sick, REST! your body needs it.


Stay Toasty and Dry

To beat the chill, dress in layers and remember to cover your extremities; keep those fingers and toes toasty! Think moisture-wicking fabrics, insulating layers, and a waterproof outer layer to keep the cold at bay.





Chill Out

Stress is detrimental to our immune system. Find fun ways to de-stress, like deep breathing, meditation, or spending time on hobbies we love. And remember to stay connected with friends and fam!


Keep an Eye on Your Health

If you're not feeling your best, pay attention to your body and seek medical advice. Early intervention can help us breeze through any health hiccups.


Oh, and last but most importantly - Remember to wash your hands!
