Take a positive outlook on Winter Wellness.

June 4, 2020 Kate Morland

Look for opportunities rather than focusing on the hurdle.

Have a plan and be curious about what you could enjoy.

Consider seasonal foods to energise and support your immune system.

Winter can be a challenging time to maintain your health habits. Daylight hours are limited, the conditions are cold, wet and unappealing. This is also the time of year when people’s health can suffer too, which is not a coincidence.

However let’s focus on the positives. Winter is the perfect time to get organised with a plan and try something new. Maybe it’s an opportunity to have a game of squash, try swimming, group classes, or gym training which are all great options to keep you out of the cold weather while maintaining a healthy body. Turn a challenge into an opportunity.

The same goes for your dietary habits. Don’t get stuck with the idea of gaining weight through winter; this is an awesome time to eat seasonally. Add citrus foods, spices and new hotpot dishes to stay energised.

Lastly if you are nursing an injury, or putting up with chronic pain or ongoing niggles treat winter as a great time to rehabilitate and focus on management.

Your management plan may include other health professionals such as physios, massage therapists, foam rolling or trigger therapy, magnesium oil or magnesium baths, hot and cold therapy, heat packs or reducing inflammatories in the diet.
