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.

5 Foods that Boost your Immune System

Spinach

Spinach contains a variety of vitamins and nutrients. It also contains folate which is necessary for cell production. Immune cells are produced in low numbers, so the added folate will help boost their production.

Blueberries

Blueberries contain high amounts of vitamin C and vitamin E which work together to make antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight off free-radicals which can weaken the immune system

Garlic

Garlic is known as nature’s antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial agent. No matter how you consume it, you will reap the immune boosting benefits of garlic.

Oranges

One orange provides 100% of the body’s daily vitamin C requirement. Vitamin C is known for it’s ability to prevent colds and boost the immune system!

Tea

Green tea and Black tea have the highest amount of nutrients. They both contain antioxidants that will eliminate the free-radicals that are building up in our bodies and weakening our immune systems.

Foods that Fight Depression

Amino Acids – Amino acids are essential for the body to make neurotransmitters which send signals to the brain and affect your mood. Some amino acids make serotonin which is a feel good chemical.

Foods with Amino Acids: Turkey, cheese, fish, almonds, chicken, avocadoes, bananas and beans

Vitamin B6 & B12 – These vitamins also help the body make neurotransmitters. If the body does not receive enough vitamin B, serotonin levels will drop. Vitamin B12 helps make SAM-e. Some studies have shown that when levels of SAM-e drop, symptoms of depression become noticeable.

Foods with Vitamin B6: beef, tuna, bananas, turkey, chickpeas
Foods with Vitamin B12: clams, oysters, chicken, crab, salmon, turkey, tuna, milk, eggs

Magnesium – those who suffer from depression usually have lower magnesium levels. Magnesium is crucial for the formation of serotonin and other neurotransmitters. Magnesium treatment may also help anxiety and insomnia problems associated with depression.

Foods with Magnesium: oat bran, halibut, spinach, barley, beans, and artichokes. Taking an Epsom salt bath will also increase magnesium levels.

Omega 3Omega 3 boosts oxygen levels in the blood increasing the body’s ability to convert amino acids into neurotransmitters. Studies have found that those with a lack of Omega 3 acids have less of a capability to send feel-good chemicals like serotonin, dopamine and nor epinephrine to the brain.

Foods with Omega 3: salmon, sardines, tuna, flax seeds, and walnuts.

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.
