5 Simple Ways To Stay Healthy During The Winter Season


5 Simple Ways To Stay Healthy During The Winter Seasonal

With colds, flu, dehydration, and dry skin running amuck during the chilling winter months, staying healthy and fit can be a challenging task, to say the least. Luckily, there are plenty of general wellness tips for winter to leave our skin glowing and our immune system ready to fight.

Wondering how to stay healthy and fit during winter? Ranging from regular exercise to the power of a quality moisturizer, here’s a list of tips to keep healthy this winter.

Exercise Regularly

The choice between a morning run and a cozy bed is a tough decision to make in winter, with the latter typically taking the crown. Although there are many ways we can motivate ourselves to maintain our daily exercise routine throughout these colder months.
For example, you could create a weekly exercise schedule for you and a friend. If you’re heading into the week with a solid idea of what you’re going to be working on, the process can be much more engaging. Plus, having a companion to work-out with can keep you feeling motivated.


Dry skin is common for many of us during this colder time, with the combination of cold air and indoor heating drawing the moisture out of the skin. Luckily, there are plenty of ways we can rid the body of dry skin in winter, ranging from adjusting your skincare routine to avoiding hot showers. 
While battling against dry skin, be sure to include a quality moisturizer in your arsenal. Whether you prefer an ointment, lotion, cream, or oil, opt for a moisturizer that suits your skin type and that you’ll be happy to use regularly.

Don’t Forget The Vitamin C

Eager to kick your immune system up a notch? Many people often turn to nutrients like garlic, ginger, and vitamin C to give the immune system a helping hand throughout the winter months. 
Oranges and other citrus fruits are packed to the brim with vitamin C, though other foods such as strawberries, capsicum, kale, and broccoli are also worthy sources. Otherwise, give your foods an extra immunity kick by cooking with ginger, turmeric, and garlic.

Be Mindful Of Your Sleep

With less sunlight during the season, winter and slumber often go hand in hand - and though it may not seem like a big issue, you should try to be mindful of your sleeping habits. Just like how a lack of sleep is bad for us, too much sleep can increase our risk of conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
The best way to combat this effect? Establish a sleep schedule. Stay loyal to a predetermined ‘bed-time’ and aim for about 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night.

Stay Hydrated

When you think of dehydration, hot weather accompanied by lots of sweating typically comes to mind. However, dehydration is just as common during the colder, winter months as well. The chilling environment causes our sweat to quickly evaporate into the cold air, making fluid loss harder to notice. It’s because of this effect that dehydration can creep up on us, leaving behind feelings of dizziness and headaches.
To avoid dehydration in winter, be mindful of your water intake. Carry a water bottle around with you and set yourself some hydrating goals. Eating water-based foods such as soups and fruit will also help with rehydrating the body, while also delivering a cocktail of nutrients to supercharge your wellbeing.

Stay well stay healthy make the most out of this winter!
