Natural Ways To Stay Healthy During The Winter

If you have successfully avoided the common cold and flu without taking any preventative measures, bravo to you! However, the majority of us are waiting for the dreadful moment that we wake up with a fever and sore throat. Rather than running the risk of becoming sick this winter, allow these natural ways to stay healthy to keep you in tiptop shape all season long:

  • When it comes to staying healthy, you must treat your body well. This means exercising regularly and partaking in other healthy living habits such as eating healthy. While you may be inclined to load up on cream-based soups every day to beat off the Texas chill, it is important that you remember to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet on a daily basis.
  • While you may be inclined to assume that your skin is not vulnerable to the sun’s rays during the winter, ultraviolet light from the sun is just as dangerous when the temperatures drop. Therefore, it is important that you remember to lather up with sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher on the daily. By using a moisturizer that already contains sunscreen, you can accomplish this task without any effort.
  • Even though the strong Texas sun is not beating down on us like it does during summer, you still need Vitamin D. However, despite popular belief, supplements are not the only way to receive Vitamin D. To enjoy Vitamin D the natural way, simply load up on delicious and nutritious foods such as wild salmon, which is a fatty fish.
  • Most importantly, get your blood flowing! Do not let the winter chill stop you from exercising! If you live in an area that is experiencing a true winter this year, sign up for yoga or Pilates class with a friend!

We hope these helpful healthy living tips allow you to remain illness-free all season long! Serving Carrollton, Coppell, and all of Texas, contact Mike Leonard Insurance Agency for all of your insurance needs.
