Stay Healthy! Five Ways To Feel Good This Winter
Keep Your Skin Glowing
Through the winter it’s tough to make sure that your skin stays glowing and bright. You aren’t getting any sunlight, after all, and in the winter it’s often easy to get dehydrated because you simply aren’t reminded to drink as much as you are during the summer. Make sure that you drink at least eight glasses of water every day and that you wear sunscreen underneath your makeup. You should also make sure that you apply night cream and eye cream to your face before you go to bed at night. The winter wind can leave your skin raw and chapped so it’s crucial to take care of it.
Who wants to spend the winter at the gym instead of on your couch wrapped in a blanket? The answer is: no one. That means that it’s important to try to make keeping fit into something you enjoy rather than a chore that you dread. Try going for a walk or a hike in a scenic area close to you – if you have a dog or if you can borrow one from a neighbour, that makes it even better! You could try going to a class like yoga, pilates or Zumba with a friend before going for lunch or dinner afterwards. That means that you’re turning keeping fit into more of a fun social occasion. Make fitness goals for yourself so you stay on track.
Eat Well And Healthily
It’s so easy to spend the winter eating chocolate and carbohydrates, but unfortunately you should probably make the effort to eat healthily at least some of the time. Invest in a slow cooker so you have a delicious and nutritious meal waiting for you when you get home from work that’s also incredibly warming. You could also look online to find out which fruits and vegetables are seasonal – check out root vegetables like sweet potatoes, particularly if you want to make a warming roast or soup.
Stay On Top Of Your Health
It’s important to try to stay healthy over winter. Keep wrapped up warm, especially your throat and ears, and if you have asthma it’s important to make sure that you get your flu vaccination. If you get a winter cold that seems to be sticking around for too long then it’s important for you to get in touch with the doctor. If you’re worried about bothering your usual doctor then try downloading an app like Dr App where you can get medical advice any time of the day.
Buy Some New Key Fashion Pieces
What’s better than making sure that you look good through the winter? There are a few key items that it’s important that you have. A timeless overcoat will make you look smart and put together at all times no matter what you’re wearing underneath it. A pair of good quality leather boots will last you for a long time and like the coat, they’ll smarten up any outfit that you’re wearing with it. Finally, a good quality handbag in a bright colour will add a little cheer to the dark dreary winter days.
