As the weather starts to change, probably the first thing that crosses your mind is the risk of getting sick, and with good reason.The changes in weather, temperature and light this time of year have physical and psychological effects on your body that in turn can have a major impact on your overall health.
“As the cool weather sets in its easy to lose motivation to exercise and eat well but there are plenty of ways to combat the winter blues and look after your health and wellbeing all year round.”
For a good health it is vital to include both soluble and insoluble fibre daily in your diet. Soluble fibre is found in foods such as psyllium husk, apples, oat bran , chickpeas & lentils. Sources of insoluble fibre include whole grains, broccoli, nuts, seeds and vegetable skins.
Staying well hydrated is again very necessary, drink atleast 500ml of water before breakfast. A glass of Kesar Badam or kesar pista on a regular basis will give you more energy, mental clarity and enhanced digestive function.
It is very essential to take 8 hours of sleep. This is the time when the body is most effective at fighting with bacteria, viruses, together with other foreign invaders. It is the time when the body restores itself back to health. You need to engage in exercises or yoga this increases the blood circulation and secretes happy hormones.
Stay Healthy.....Happy Winters!!
