Now that the days are getting colder and darker, it can be difficult to find the motivation to exercise outside or early in the morning. The food we eat also moves from salads to comfort foods to warm us those cold evenings. Here are some things to try this winter to stay feeling fit and healthy...
Yes, we may be biased but a bowl of matcha green tea really is one of the best ways to start your day. It not only fills you with warmth and antioxidants to keep your skin healthy and the cold and flu at bay but it will also give you the energy and concentration to get you through any wintery day.
When the biting wind chills you to your bones, step inside a hot yoga studio and enjoy 90 minutes of bikram yoga. Not only will it help to detox your body and give you a great workout, it is the perfect way to heat your body right through.
Grab yourself some new Tupperware and make a big batch of soup at the star of the week to take to work with you each day. Making your own soup means you can cram it full of nutritious vegetables and some warming ginger or chilli to spice up your lunch (and warm you up)!
It is almost inevitable that at some point in winter we will come down with a virus of some sort, but you can give your body’s defences a fighting chance by keeping your vitamin levels topped up. Make sure you pack your day with plenty of fresh fruit, or why not give it a boost with a daily Berocca.
While most sports and activities favour summer weather, there are certain pasttimes which rely on wintery weather. So when those dark days set in, head over to the alps or up to Scotland and jump on some skis or a snowboard to enjoy the best of winter. As good for your fitness as is it is fun, this is one sport which is guaranteed to make you jump out of bed in the morning!
