Enjoy every activity this season brings with simple solutions that are good for body and soul.
When stuck indoors during the cold, winter months, it may be difficult for some to maintain physical (and emotional) health, especially in the midst of a pandemic that is forcing many others to maintain solitude and limit their travel options. Thankfully, there are many, wonderful, small steps people can take when it comes to staying healthy during this dreary, final season of the year. Below are three simple (yet very important) tips most people can follow to help maintain, and perhaps even improve, their health during winter. They are easy to follow, take only minutes each day, and are foundational to proper health, regardless of the time of year. However, they are important during a time when people may find themselves isolated, indoors, and less active than during other times of the year.
1. Eat nutritious foods
It may seem obvious, but it can never be overstated enough. Proper health begins with a proper diet, which is why eating vegetables, fruits, proteins, and whole grains are essential to keep the mind focused, muscles and organs strong, and stave off illness and infection. The body needs energy to function, and the more nutrients it is provided with, the better it will work, which means the foods stated above should be fresh and contain as few processed ingredients as possible. Whole foods provide carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, and vitamins that when properly balanced, yield maximum health benefits. For those sensitive to grains, dairy, or other foods, consider supplementing with vitamins. Refrain from sugars and overly fatty foods as much as possible.
2. Stay active
Yes, it is cold outside and there is snow on the ground. Yes, the local gym is likely shut down due to COVID-19 restrictions. This does not mean staying physically active is impossible in a home or office environment. In fact, people are exercising at home in unprecedented numbers, due mostly to the existence of the COVID-19 virus. Simple tools like a yoga mat, resistance bands, and dumbbells are all that’s really needed to get started. For those unsure of what types of exercises to start with, YouTube and social media are excellent spaces to find health and fitness coaches, influencers, and trainers with a variety of routines and techniques that can be enjoyed by workout newbies and veterans alike. Regular exercise can help one: reduce anxiety, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, and lose weight.
3. Fortify health with Omega Complex
Available almost everywhere, Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids are more than important for staying healthy. They have powerful health benefits that directly affect the body and brain, and are loaded with nutrients that do everything from battle depression to reduce the risk of heart disease. Live Wise Naturals has dramatically improved the benefits of Omega 3-6-9 with its new product, Omega Complex. Developed from microalgae rather than fish oil, this product is much easier on the digestive system, and is absorbed more quickly and fully by the body. It is also chemical-free, non-GMO, and enhanced with ahiflower oil and astaxanthin, making it one of the highest concentrations of Omega 3-6-9 on the market.
