Tips for a healthy winter

Winter is one of those seasons that brings with it a wave of many illnesses. When winter arrives, the rate with which people start to fall sick increases and this leads to an important question that is on everyone’s mind. What can you do to stay healthy this winter? And, this very question we are going to answer in this blog.

 

Immunity is not an easy task to deal with, as it is something that you cannot confidently rely on especially when the weather is in constant flux. The problem with winters is that the when the temperatures start to drop, people in houses keep their window and doors closed for the most part. This leads to lack of ventilation inside the house which in turn then causes the microbiome of the house to change. Now, instead of getting into unnecessary jargon, what this simply means that, your house becomes a breeding ground for the many microbes.

 

 

Let us go through some tips that will help you keep your skin healthy this winter season

 

  • Make the habit of using a moisturising soap
  • It is a good idea to minimise the use of soap on select body parts as it allows you to avoid excessive dryness
  • Although it is winter season, try not using hot water instead opt for lukewarm water
  • Reduce the time you take your baths and showers
  • It is important that you continue to drink more water
  • If you are in the habit of wearing makeup, applying some kind of moisturiser will be good
  • Keep warm for the weather and dress accordingly for the weather. Although it is common sense but it helps if you protect your skin and your face when cold winds are blowing.
  • It is important that you keep your diet healthy, balanced and maintain a good diet all year round.
  • Adding a few drops of coconut oil or sesame oil to your bathing water or applying it to on your skin before you bath will help your skin retain moisture and keep it healthy.

Healthy Habits Every Youth Must Adopt Before Turning 20

Age is not just a number really! With age, your body starts functioning differently and your immune system starts getting weaker naturally. One of the major reasons for this to happen earlier than expected is because of the unhealthy lifestyle habits that we succumb to in this hectic and zippy life. When you are young, your body has more energy which helps you counter ailments or diseases naturally. But you can’t take things lightly. As you keep growing older, you will face the consequences of what you do with your health during your younger years.

Here is a list of 5 healthy habits you should follow when you are young so that you stay as fit as the fiddle when you are old.

Exercise regularly

Just like brushing your teeth, right after getting up, make it a point to put in at least 45 minutes to exercise. Exercise improves blood circulation, agility, increases energy levels and strengthens your muscles. How you do it is completely your wish. You can go out for a morning jog or do a few reps of pull-ups, push-ups, crunches etc. Regular exercise also keeps your heart fit and combat health conditions that may arise due to excess- body weight. You can even do your most loving dancing steps.  Dancing freshens up your mind, relieves stress and anxiety too.

Follow a healthy diet

We live in a day and age where indulging in junk food has become a very dangerous trend among the youth. No doubt they are tasty and satisfy your cravings, but always remember to calculate at what cost you are getting all of this. Spicy and oily food can increase cholesterol levels and lead to many other digestion related complications later on. Your body requires the right proportions of proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates and fats. The moment you intake any of these elements disproportionately, you are going to face health complications after you hit 30.

Avoid smoking or drinking

Another sad scene where the youngsters today think that it is very cool smoke or drink when they are socializing! We don’t realize the number of toxins that keep getting generated within your body with these harmful habits. Smoking can drastically affect the functioning of lungs, heart and kidneys as well. Similarly consuming excess alcohol can lead to many health complications in the long run.

Drink ample water

Near about 60 % of the body is made of water. Drinking enough H2O maintains the body’s fluid balance, which helps transport nutrients in the body, regulate body temperature, digest food, and more. Drinking water could also help with weight loss as it helps people feel full, and as a result, consume fewer calories. Also, kidneys need enough water to clear away what we don’t need in the body!
