How to deal with winter


Just like the famous saying whatever goes around, comes around, weather follows a cyclic pattern each year. Spring is followed by summer and autumn follows winter. While each season has its own pros and cons, there is no doubt that cold weather has its fair share of challenges that affects majority of the world population each year.

Be Prepared:

Remember that prevention is always better than cure. The same hold true when preparing for the upcoming harsh winter season. A lot of people feel sad, irritated and complain of extensive mood swings and winter blues with the onset of winter. Preparing a checklist of things needed to acclimatize the body for the sudden change in temperature is advised. Preparation may be as simple as stock up on warm beverages like soups tea, coffee or hot chocolates to having furnaces and wall heaters checked or serviced by a professional to going out shopping to buy warm clothing accessories like gloves and caps to stocking up on anti allergy medication. No matter what part of the planet one may be, preparing for the harsh winter months is an exercise that goes a long way in helping survive harsh winter making it an enjoyable experience rather than a depressing cold couple of never ending months.

Maintain A Focused Diet Regime:

Having a correct diet regime is one of the most important steps in dealing with the winter months. Since our bodies get prone to allergic reactions due to sluggish immunity because of the cold weather, it is very important to replenish the body with the right diet. Normal fruits can be swapped for more dried fruits like nuts and walnuts while hot broths in addition to grilled vegetable salads are a perfect replacement for a normal summer meal. Always make sure to not let the water level in the body go down and try and replenish the body with at least 6-8 glasses of water every day. Having a multivitamin supplement can also boost the immunity levels of the body which are very helpful in fighting the dreaded cold.

Keep Active:

Winters bring with them a series of seasonal diseases including winter blues or more serious Seasonal Affective Disorders. Keeping an active lifestyle in winters not only makes our bodies more prone to fight any small allergies but can also help keeping the blues and the depression out for good. If it is too cold to go for walk, indoor exercises must be incorporated in the daily regime to reduce symptoms of any seasonal depression. Hitting the gym or indoor activities like yoga can be very much beneficial.
