Staying Healthy with Diet Moderations in winter


If you are getting ready to face the colder season in Australia and New Zealand, here are some tips that will help you to stay warm and healthy:

Make changes in your diet

Winter is the time to stock your kitchen with foods that are rich in Vitamin C and help in keeping your immune system strong. We suggest oranges, sweet lime, kiwifruit, capsicum, spinach and broccoli to be your fruits and vegetables of choice especially at this time. Take at least 2 servings of fruits and five servings of vegetables daily. Legumes, whole-grains, nuts and herbs are other foods to include in meals.

Exercise frequently

The cold weather tends to make us lazy and go into a temporary ‘hibernation’ mode. But it’s not wise to let go your workout regimen in winter. Studies have shown that even with moderate level of regular exercises you can see long-term cumulative effect on your fitness, health and immunity. You can always exercise indoors with the right gym equipment. Everything from treadmills to cheap heart rate monitor can be bought online now.

Wash up

Washing your hands frequently is a good way to avoid diseases that spread contagiously in winters. Cleaning of hands reduces the transfer of bacteria, viruses and other microbes. It is more important in winter as when people affected by sneeze and cough more frequently. The right way to wash hands is to wet them in lukewarm water and lather up in soap for about 10-15 seconds. This will help to expunge germs and you can then rinse thoroughly with running water.

Sleep well

If you are not getting adequate sleep, it can seriously impact your health. In winter poor sleeping pattern may make you more vulnerable to common cold. To prepare for a relaxing bedtime, you can read a good book, listen to soft, soothing music or taking a warm bath before you finally snooze away. Avoid spending a lot of time before the laptop or mobile screen at night.
