Ways to Stay Healthy in the Winter

1. Focus on getting your vitamins. Winter is a great time to tap into certain seasonal fruits and vegetables that are only available in the winter. By taking a multivitamin, you might feel better by correcting a deficiency you didn’t even know you had.

2. ‘Treat yourself’ occasionally. Treating yourself is the idea of giving yourself some ‘me time’ or small self-indulgence, guilt-free. Treating yourself is an act of self-compassion. Self-compassion is treating yourself with the same kindness and care you’d treat a friend. Acting compassionately towards yourself can help you in fostering better mental health.

3. Find ways to move more. There are many benefits to exercising regularly and many ways to exercise even when temperatures are unfavorable outside.

4. Wash your hands properly

5. Take care of your skin. The frigid, dry air outside and indoor heating can take a toll on your skin during the winter.

6. Remember to manage your stress. Stress can negatively affect your musculoskeletal system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, gastrointestinal system, nervous system, and more.
