5 Ways You Can Help Keep Yourself Healthy This Winter


Personally, I’ve always enjoyed the winter months. I love the snow, and I don’t mind the dark. I especially like the presents I get over the holiday season. However, winter is known to many as the flu season. So I thought I should offer some tips to help people stay healthy this winter season.

1. Get Lots of Sleep – Getting adequate sleep is crucial to staying healthy, yet it’s one of the most overlooked ways to stay healthy. Sometimes getting enough sleep isn’t always the problem. To receive the full health benefits, go to bed at an appropriate time, and try and sleep at around the same time every night if at all possible.

2. Eat Healthy – Your diet plays a huge role in your health. If you want to stay healthy during winter, you have to eat healthy. Make sure you eat at least 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit each day. Also, make sure you drink plenty of fluids.

3. Take a Multi-Vitamin – Try to take a daily multi-vitamin to help your body stay in top flu fighting condition. Multi-vitamins are easy to take because they’re daily and they can provide you with crucial vitamins you may be lacking.


4. Wash Your Hands!!!
– Make sure you wash your hands on a regular basis. We’re pretty filthy animals, there is bacteria everywhere and although most of it is actually okay for us, there is some that is harmful, even deadly in some cases. Washing your hands with soap and hot water frequently is one of the best ways to prevent sickness. Avoid hand sanitizer if you can because it kills almost all bacteria on your hands, but what they don’t tell you is that all the good bacteria that we need is included in the tiny bacterial casualties.


5. Get a Flu Shot
– Probably the best way to stay healthy is to receive a flu shot. Flu shots can help your body protect against the flu and may save you from having a winter full of tissues and a runny nose. Flu shots aren’t that expensive and are definitely worth the money.

Tips for a good night’s sleep

Filed under: calcium,magnesium,Multivitamin,sleep,sleep deprivation,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 4:29 pm
The brain is okay at functioning on only a few hours of sleep, but it will not live up to its potential. Having a lack of sleep can actually cause your mental, physical, and even emotional health to pay. You will have a harder time doing simple tasks when you are sleep deprived, and may start to get moody with those around you. In order to keep yourself healthy and maintain your relationships, make sure you are getting enough sleep!

Here are some tips to help you get a better night’s sleep:

Try to maintain a regular sleep schedule – go to bed and wake up at around the same times every day.

Exercise regularly – Regular exercise will help you use up more energy and reduce your stress levels helping you sleep better.

Wind down before bed – Try to do something relaxing before going to bed like reading a book or having a bath. This will tell your body that you are ready to sleep and ease you of stress that could keep you up at night. Avoid sitting on the computer before going to bed – it may hinder your ability to fall asleep peacefully.

Stay Healthy – A healthy diet will help you sleep well. Make sure you have plenty of calcium and magnesium in your diet. Try taking multivitamins regularly to improve your overall health.

Watch Out!! – Some multivitamin formulas can contain “tag-along” ingredients picked up from the manufacturing plant that may not be the most favorable products to be taking regularly. Make sure to research and choose a reputable multivitamin like Centrum, VitaVim, Maltlevol (liquid), or One-A-Day (men’s or women’s), which were found to be free of extra ingredients. If you are pregnant, on prescription medicine, or just don’t know what vitamins are best for your body, seek advice from your healthcare professional.

A multivitamin is a supplement intended to improve your diet via providing you with the essential vitamins and minerals needed by the body to stay healthy. They are not only needed and used by those with dietary imbalances or specific dietary needs, but by those who are appreciative of their overall well-being… and also the rest of us, who neglect the importance of eating natural food that takes longer than 5 microwave-minutes to prepare.

It has been reported that those who take multivitamins daily noticed a positive change in their overall health. Specific vitamins and minerals allow us to benefit in different ways. A balanced daily intake of vitamins and minerals ensures overall stability for your body. In our highly demanding lifestyles, there are many things that hinder our ability to relax and cause stress. Although almost all vitamins have the uncanny ability to combat stress, vitamin B12 is proven to be the most effective in reducing stress. Vitamin B12 helps your body produce serotonin, (a feel-good chemical) that travels directly to the brain.

Multivitamins usually contain a number of fundamental vitamins such as vitamin A, C, D, E, K and B12. These vitamins are the basis of good health and if our body were to have a major deficiency of any of them, the effects would be quickly recognized. Some multivitamins also contain minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, and magnesium, which all do their part in ensuring optimum physical and mental vitality. Taking a daily multivitamin is a small contribution to the body that anyone can benefit from.

How to prevent yourself from vitamin deficiency.

Vitamins, in small amounts, are necessary for proper growth and functioning of your body. They are organic substances that do not provide calories. Your body does not produce vitamins (except Vitamin D because it can be formed when your skin is exposed to the sun).

Eat a minimum of 5 servings of vegetables and fruits everyday for fiber, vitamin C and other antioxidant vitamins. Consume less cholesterol and saturated fats products. Control high blood pressure and diabetes, lose excess weight, and do daily exercises. Stop smoking.

Vitamin C Weakened tissues and bleeding (Scurvy Syndrome)

Vitamin Thiamin Brain, nerve, and heart damage (Beriberi Syndrome)

Vitamin Niacin Skin inflammation, diarrhea, dementia, and nerve damage (Pellagra Syndrome)

B12 Anemia, nerve damage, and dementia
