How to Survive Winter 2020

Friday, 3 January 2020  |  Eugene

Winter's a time of change; the nights are darker, the sun sets quicker and the temperatures plummet. Unfortunately, this change often impacts our health; for many, winter brings a period of sickness, whether it be the lurgy or something worse. Luckily, there are things you can do to mitigate and prevent serious reactions to winter weather. We've consulted our seasoned winter experts here at Health and Care, and have collated the best advice and products to keep you feeling your best.

How to Survive Winter 2020

Tips and Tricks For Surviving Winter 2020

  • Wash your hands / Do not to touch your face - Applicable in all the seasons, but as winter is a period of extreme sickness in every country, this advice has never been more relevant. Wash those hands regularly and make sure you keep your fingers away from your face. You never know what bacteria you've picked up.
  • Drink 2 or more litres of water a day - Again, relevant throughout the year, but this is the best way to flush your system out. Two litres of water a day is a guaranteed way of ensuring your body is impervious to sickness and ill health. It will also ensure your inner systems including bones, mucus, saliva, blood and skin are all healthy.
  • Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables - Giving your body the right nutrients is imperative to good health. Detoxifying your blood with good, vitamin rich food will ensure your organs are well-prepared for the cold. Eating food also gets your metabolism working, which means you will generate greater body heat
  • Exercise - Just as eating the right food gives your body the tools for survival, exercising regularly ensures your body is working overtime to resist cold weather. 
  • Take some vitamin supplements - If you can't get your 5 a day in, take some vitamin supplements. They're never as good as the real deal but they will improve your overall health 100% . Indeed, many people are considerably low in Iron, Vitamin D and B12.
