Healthy Living Tips for Winter

Healthy Living Tips for WinterHealthy Living Habits to Maintain During the Winter Chill

Many of us enjoy the winter season in the comfort of our homes and take a break from the gym and our healthy living habits. However, taking a break from the healthy life for even a few months can prove to make it significantly harder to follow your New Year’s Resolutions. We want you to remain healthy and active all year long, which is why we have gathered these healthy living tips for winter:

  • During the winter, it is important that you raise your Vitamin D levels in a natural way. Despite common disbelief, there are ways to do this other than with pills and sunlight. Many individuals have no idea that shedding off 5% of your body weight can boost your Vitamin D levels significantly. You can also increase Vitamin D levels by lowering your cholesterol, exercising, and eating fatty fish such as wild salmon.
  • Despite common neglect, you need sunscreen just as much, if not more so, during the winter. Many individuals take a break from protecting their skin during the winter, which can prove to leave unpleasant consequences. We suggest using a moisturizer that already contains sunscreen.
  • We all get lazy with exercising when winter rolls around, so why not enroll in a fun exercise class with a friend to ensure you get your blood flowing at least a couple of days a week. Yoga is a great way to stretch your muscles and joints when the winter chill has them stiffer than usual.
  • Do not forget to add plants into your diet! This means having sources of omega-3 fatty acids on a daily basis. Chia seeds, walnuts, and flaxseed offer great sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

We hope these healthy living tips for winter allow you to start off the New Year on the right, healthy foot. Contact Colorado Nonprofit Insurance Agency in Denver for all of your Colorado commercial insurance needs. Protecting your Colorado nonprofit organization is our top priority!
