Keeping Healthy During the Winter

We live in a day and age where health and fitness has not only become a necessity but almost an obsession. During the winter months it is especially important to take care of your health and fitness.

Sometimes getting sick in the winter is inevitable but there are things you can do to help soften the blow and strengthen the immune system when it is really needed. Since we tend to burn more calories in the winter due to our bodies efforts in keeping ourselves warm, it’s important to eat a well balanced meal three times a day to keep up your energy.

Also taking a multi vitamin on a regular basis can boost the immune system. Vitamin C has been heralded for quite possibly being the best immune system supporter and antioxidant available today. People who take daily doses of vitamin C can boost their immune system. Vitamin C supports the immune system by protecting the body from free radical damage.

Feel a cold coming on? A little dose of Echinacea should help until you feel like new again. Keeping yourself hydrated. Drinking green tea with a dash of lemon juice or honey is a great warm up and has plenty of antioxidants.

Exercise! Granted, not many people like to venture out into the bitter cold temperatures to do much of anything. Therefore, running, biking, and even walking the dog may seem out of the question on those icy days. But sometimes getting out and breathing in some fresh air is just what the doctor ordered. Further, there are many activities you can do inside as well to keep you active in the winter months.

-Taking Martial Arts classes with your children (you knew I was going to mention it)
– Yoga, Pilates or Stretching
– Stationary bikes or Treadmills
– Dance (Wii has a fun dance game to keep you moving!)

There are many great exercises designed for indoors to keep you active in the winter.
