1 Warm Up.
There is nothing like warming up with a nice cup of cocoa. Try our Pure Collagen Cocoa Magic. Collagen has many benefits and is known to be beneficial for our immune system. It also helps to repair the dry skin many of us seem to suffer from during Winter. And of course, there is the cocoa that helps keep us warm. What else can we ask for? View Product Here.
2 Limit the spread of germs
Remember to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. Wash your hands regularly using soap and warm water and scrub for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Remind those around you to do the same!
3 Stay hydrated
Drinking enough water each day boosts your immune system and helps you fight viruses. Water is important to help flush the kidneys, for joint mobility and to keep us hydrated. Aim for at least 8 glasses each day and if you find water to be too cold, topping it up with some freshly boiled from the kettle will do no harm.
4 Keep Moving
Cold weather makes you want to cuddle up under blankets by the fireside drinking huge mugs of tea. But moving is important, and I do not mean from the couch to the armchair. Exercising those limbs, and your whole body are very important. And if the cold keeps you indoors, today we can download apps on our phones and follow videos on YouTube. So no excuses there! The benefits are not just physical but mentally too as dull days can effect one’s mood. Round that off with a nice warm bath using our BetterYou Magnesium flakes. The range offers you six different ones to choose from. View them Here.
5 Practice Mindful Eating for complete nourishment
Food is to be enjoyed but the main purpose is to keep us nourished. Seasonal fruit and vegetables gives us what we need in terms of nutrients. So stock up on local fresh oranges! Avoid processed foods as much as possible and choose home cooked meals instead. Not so easy? Complement your meals with the right supplements. In Winter, we need supplements that help give our immune system a good boost. These include Vitamin D, Beta Glucans and Zinc amongst others.
6 Keep that skin nourished.
