5 Tips to stay healthy this winter

WEB DESK: It is not an easy task to maintain yourself in the harsh weather of winter. You need to boost your immunity by consuming a range of foods including fruits and vegetables.  
Winter is often given a bad rap as it brings with it the cold & flu season and those cold, dark mornings. However, with a little effort there is no reason for your health to suffer during the colder months!
1.Eating well

As winter sets in it can be tempting to start eating more of those warm foods that are mostly high in fat, salt and sugar. Be sure your diet includes winter fruit and vegetables packed with vitamins and minerals such as sweet potato, green leafy vegetable and add dry fruits in your routine diet.

2.Skin health


The cold weather can affect our skin badly. This may be due to the reduced humidity or drinking less water than you would during summer. Using moisturizers daily may help to keep skin moist and soft.

3. Sleeping well


Proper sleep of about eight hours can help keep the body’s immune system healthy and fight off colds. Avoid cigarette because it can affect the quality of your sleep. Moderate exercise and establishing a regular sleep routine may help to promote improved sleep.

4.Stay hydrated


Stay hydrated in winter is the best solution of half of your problems. Don’t forget to keep drinking water! As the weather cools down and our thirst decreases it is easy to forget to drink enough water. If you struggle with plain water try herbal tea.

5.Weight management


Forgetting the exercise as well as the salad during winter can often lead to weight gain. While it may only be a small weight gain but it spoils your body so keep doing exercise and keep moving in winter which helps in your blood circulation too.
