3 Tips for Improving Your Wellbeing & Staying Healthy in Winter!

20 Jun 2019

In winter, the days are colder, darker and shorter, and this can have negative effects on our mental and physical wellbeing. Here are 3 tips for staying healthy in winter!

Whether you love or hate winter, there’s no doubt that it can be a trying time for our mental and physical wellbeing. The days are colder, darker and shorter, and our bodies become much more susceptible to cold and flu. Being proactive about your inner and outer wellbeing is the best way to make sure that you have the comfortable and sickness-free winter that you deserve.

Here are 3 tips for staying healthy and happy this winter:

#1 Boost Your Immunity

Boosting your immunity is essential in the winter months, because this is how you will fight the dreaded winter flu! Make sure that you eat well, get enough sleep, keep active (even though all you want to do is stay at home in your tracksuit) and stock up on supplements that contain echinacea, garlic, vitamin C, and zinc. You should also make sure to stay warm, so rug up! Heat packs are perfect for cold, wintery nights - and you can find an adorable selection at ACP’s Bed Bath N’ Table.

#2 Nourish Your Skin


Cold weather can cause skin dryness, flakiness, itchiness, chilblains and eczema. So, your goal is to keep your skin extra nourished and hydrated in the winter months. We recommend that you use drink plenty of water, use a gentle cleanser, moisturiser daily, and don’t forget to wear sunscreen - just because it’s cold doesn’t mean you can’t get burnt! You can find all the skincare products you need from ACP retailers like The Body Shop.

Winter is also the perfect time to treat your skin to nourishing and hydrating skin care treatments - like the Organic Infusion facial provided by Endota Spa!

#3 Relax & Rest Up


Stress and lack of sleep can lower your resistance to nasty bugs, and prevent your immune system from working effectively. To get more sleep and reduce your stress, make sure that you exercise regularly, get plenty of family & friend time, avoid smoking, cut down on your consumption of alcohol and caffeine, and try relaxation techniques like meditation. 

To take your relaxation to the next level, why not visit ACP and treat yourself to a remedial massage from The Massage Lounge
