Staying Healthier During These Cold Winter Days

See also

Winter is definitely hitting Ohio hard this year. This may make it harder for some to stay healthy. For one reason, it is harder to exercise, if you are used to exercising outside. Secondly, you may be finding comfort from the cold by eating things you know you shouldn’t. Yet, if you force yourself to think about how close spring really is and how great you will look in those spring clothes, it may be easier to try to take the necessary steps to stay healthier. These include things like:
Eat Yogurt

Yogurt is a great way to start the day. It can make a great snake or lunch item. It can also help you reduce your blood pressure and help add some much needed Vitamin D in your body. Remember we don’t get as much Vitamin D during the winter months because we aren’t in the sun as much.

Revamp Your Exercise Routine

No, this may not be the best time to run outside. But you could try riding a stationary bike inside while watching your favorite television show. You could also experiment with some new exercising DVDs. You may even want to exercise with your family while you play games that make you move on your favorite gaming consoles such as Wii.
Drink Plenty Of Water

Water is a drink we all need the year round. Don’t cut back on it just because it is cold. Remember you will need water to help keep your skin hydrated. Plus, when you have a cold you need to drink plenty of fluids, including water, to flush out phlegm and mucus from your body.

Eat Healthy Foods

Eat a diet of healthy foods, including an ample supply of fruits and vegetables. This will help keep your body strong and help you build a good immune system.
Wash Your Hands Frequently

Washing your hands is the best way to ensure that you keep bacteria off of your skin and away from your mouth and eyes. This can help keep you from getting sick as often.

Yes, winter is hard on the body. Luckily, there are steps we can take to ensure that we make it through the winter time healthy and are still healthy once spring finally arrives.
