7 Ways to Winter Wellbeing

Written By  Go Vita

Adopting a lifestyle focused on physical activity, nutritious eating, social engagement, and overall well-being is pivotal for leading a gratifying and active life as you age gracefully.
Here are some guidelines for healthy aging.

1. Nourish Your Body

Winter is tough on skin and hair. Cold winds and overheated workplaces result in dry, dull skin, chapped lips, and brittle hair. Omega-3 supplements are exceptional for moisturising and anti-ageing, balancing oil production, and protecting skin and hair.

 

Take omega-3 supplements daily to nourish skin and hair from within; in addition to hydrating skin cells, omega-3 can be helpful in treating painful skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

 

Omega-3 supplements provide essential fatty acids to counter inflammation-related disorders, such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. Additionally, using natural oils such as jojoba oil or rosehip oil can be an inexpensive and effective cosmetic treatment. Use a few drops as a massage treatment for the face, hands, and feet, or as a leave-in conditioner for hair to maintain moisture and promote health.

 

2. Aromatherapy inspiration

Use eucalyptus and ginger essential oils in a humidifier to add powerful anti-infective and antibacterial properties to the atmosphere.

 

3. Breathe Deep

Winter is hard on people with poor lung function. Cold, damp air can irritate the delicate mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, and throat, triggering wheezing and coughing. Indoor air pollution and elevated mould levels, both indoors and outside, are also risk factors.

 

4. Protect Yourself

When it comes to preventing winter health woes, vitamin C remains one of the top nutrients for supporting immune function. It is also essential for enhancing the appearance of the skin, and significantly improves bone health and joint flexibility. Vitamin C in powder form is a quick and convenient way to add a booster shot of this essential antioxidant to a smoothie.

 

5. Stop A Sore Throat Before It Starts

hree of the most important natural weapons against a sore, scratchy throat are honey (antispasmodic and calming) plus vitamin C and zinc (powerful antioxidants to support immunity and counter free radicals resulting from infections).

 

6. Love Legumes

Chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, mm-mmm! As well as being tasty and inexpensive, legumes have a fortifying and comforting effect on the mind and body during winter. Add them to casseroles, slow braises and chunky soups. Legumes are a rich source of prebiotic fibre, making them a valuable asset to gut health, which supports overall immunity.

 

7. Add Elderberry

The elderberry, or Sambucus plant, is renowned in Traditional Western Herbal Medicine for its ability to reduce cold and flu symptoms and support immune function. Brauer has harnessed elderberry's power in their Sambucus Black Elderberry range, which includes products for cough, cold, and flu relief. This range also features Wellmune®, a patented ingredient that reduces upper respiratory tract infections by 66 percent, and Iceland Moss, known for soothing throat irritation and dry coughs.

 

8. Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to maintain hydration levels and support overall health. Adequate hydration is crucial for proper digestion, cognitive function, and cellular processes.
