How to stay healthy during winter

Winter is fast approaching. In today’s blog you will see some few tips on how to stay healthy during winter.

1. Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise will make you feel more energetic, which should make it a little easier to get out of your warm bed on cold, dark mornings. Your body’s defense system will also benefit from it. Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn.. If you can’t do an actual workout you are not be able to set aside a large amount of time for exercise get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.

Exercise is very essential because it can help to fight health conditions and diseases because regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls. Exercise also improves mood and boosts energy.


2. Keep yourself Warm

Cover yourself up properly during winter make sure to by the necessary clothings to keep yourself warm. Cold homes have a significant impact on people’s health. One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm. Keeping warm over the winter months can help prevent colds, flu or more serious health conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia and depression.

3. Eat balanced diet

Being undernourished makes you feel exhausted, weak, and sluggish. Having tons of energy and feeling strong is just one of many healthy eating advantages. Imagine waking up each morning and eagerly getting out of bed to start your day. Imagine having plenty of energy to carry you through the day, no matter how busy it is. Imagine going to bed each night feeling proud of all you accomplished during the day, and feeling like you still have energy to spare. By the way, your quality of sleep is better when you eat healthy too, so you wake up feeling refreshed instead of foggy-headed and still tired.

4. Have good sleep

Lack of sleep can have a serious effect on your immune system, making you more vulnerable to catching colds. A study from Brazil found lack of sleep can result in a substantial decrease in the white blood cells that help to fight infection in the body. Create a relaxing bedtime routine, such as listening to soft music or soaking in a warm bath. Avoid watching TV or using your computer just before bedtime and turn the lights down low an hour before you turn in for the night, as it will boost the release of melatonin in the brain. Also try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends.


5. Drink sufficient amount of water

As for me I would says water is generally good even during winter or after winter. Because drinking water during winter is just as important as drinking water during summer. Hot beverages with sugar increases our daily calories intake quite a bit. Sometimes we don’t refer to them as “foods” but as ‘drinks’, but they can be a significant source of added winter calories, along with reduced physical activity. Please note that placing hot beverages under “drinks” sometimes causes reduced calorie-free drinking such as water.

6. Do not smoke

Smoking during winter is as bad as smoking during summer most smokers actually claim it keeps them warm during winter and relieves them of stress but it causes more deaths each year than HIV, alcohol, illegal drug use, car accidents, suicides and murders combined, according to the Centers for Disease and Prevention website. Smoking increases the risk of other cancers, such as kidney, bladder, cervix and pancreatic cancer. Smokers are at a higher risk for heart attack than nonsmokers, and smoking contributes to chronic lung diseases like emphysema and bronchitis.
