Staying Healthy This Winter Season

We would like to thank everyone who attended this years open house and 10th anniversary party. It was a great success! This week in our blog I would like to discuss lifestyle strategies for the upcoming change of season. After you dig out your winter clothes and prepare to turn up the heat in your house your lifestyle and habits may have to change. Here are a few strategies to consider.

Everything from eating well to washing your hands can allow you to dodge the flu bug. If you do happen to get the virus do all you can not to spread it to others.
If you are one who normally exercises outdoors you may need to change your routine. I may recommend joining a gym or purchasing thera-bands or a stability ball for home use. These tools may seem simple but there is a vast array of exercise you can perform with them.
With the holidays getting closer and closer it is important to continue to think about portion size and not eating too many unhealthy snacks. Take everything in moderation while continuing to exercise.
Emotional health
Don’t let the gray skies, snow, and the darkness of winter get you down. It is said that the more depressing months of the year are to come. Take the time to relax and have fun this winter. It could be anything from catching a show to taking up a new winter hobby.
