Colder weather joined with shorter days and less daylight. Here are a few handy tips for keeping healthy during the winter season.
Eating yourself healthy - look for nutrient rich organic root vegetables and make homemade warming soups. Try adding turmeric and ginger to your soups to help with digestion and warm the body from within. Nourish yourself with warm herbal teas throughout the day and evening. Pukka makes a delicious Elderberry & Echinacea tea that is perfect for the first signs of a common cold.
Savour the indoors - make a fire, bake a cake, read a book, do a puzzle, or play a board game.
Dress for Warmth - layering up is an easy way to keep warm on chilly days.
Sleep - its always easy to jeopardise your sleep. In 2019, try to make sleep a priority and aim for 7-8 hours a night. Head off to bed early, read a book or write in a journal. Skip the temptation of taking your phone to bed and charge it in another room. If you are struggling to drift off the Spritz Wellness Sleep Atmosphere Mist is a great bedside essential. Mist your room and pillow before sleep and the calming scents of lavender, chamomile, mandarin and ravensara will help to sooth the mind and body.
Make exercise a way to keep warm - Wrap up and take a brisk winter walk. Stay inside and do a home yoga practice or attend a local yoga class. If you need some guidance or inspiration check out Yoga Glo it offers hundreds of classes from top international teachers offering a range of classes from Ashtanga to Yin.
Drink water and stay hydrated - I recently discovered Holdereight water bottles. They are stylish, BPA free and you can even put your tea in them too.
Incorporate aromatherapy - Daily I use Purify Atmosphere Mist. It contains five key essential oils Lemongrass, Ravensara, Lavender, Tea tree and Eucalyptus. This natural remedy is excellent for clearing the air of bacteria leaving a clean fresh scent. Mist the air to purify the home, office and car.
