Top 5 winter wellness tips 2022

1. Vitamin D check

Although it is common to feel a little sluggish in the winter, common complaints like fatigue, low immunity and muscle pain could actually indicate low levels of Vitamin D. While the nights stretch out and the winter weather is often lacking sunshine, keep an eye on your vitamin D levels this winter to ensure you stay as healthy as possible.

2. Protect your skin

Winter is one of the harshest seasons for your skin – combatting the crisp, chill from the outside air compared to the stuffy, hot air from your heating system can cause your skin to dry out pretty quickly.

Each time you shower, ensure you moisturise your skin as well as drink lots of water to keep you hydrated.

3. Vegetables galore!

Veggies are not just for Christmas! Filling your plate with dark, leafy greens will ensure your diet is packed full of nutrients, antioxidants and fibre, which increases your energy. It’s not too late to jump on the Veganuary bandwagon either; if you’re not sure where to start, you’ll find tons of inspiration on the H&B Health Hub, plus keep an eye out on their social channels for brilliant Veganuary content including exclusive mouthwatering recipes from the Avant-Garde Vegan, Gaz Oakley.

4. Watch out for SAD

The winter blues can often get to the best of us, but sometimes, it might be more than just missing the sunshine. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that happens at this time of year, making you more irritable, lacking energy and more likely to oversleep.
If you suspect you may have SAD, ensure to speak to your GP for professional advice.

5. Exercise is key

Alright, we’ll level with you. Motivating yourself to walk to the gym in the dark, cold and wet is less than desirable. However, keeping up with regular exercise can improve your mood, energy levels and sleep, so you’ll be grateful for it in the long run!
