This week I really wanted to focus on what you can do to make your winter healthier. I know that personally, the winter is my least healthy season. I eat poorly, my mental health suffers, and I’m normally in a lot more pain during these months than the rest of the year. Thankfully I have figured out some ways to help these issues and want to share them with you as well. After all, I know I’m not the only one who doesn’t like winter for these reasons so why not share what I’ve found to make it a little easier?
The first thing that I want to remind you is that you don’t have to eat unhealthy food during the winter. Having vegetables is still something that you can do, especially in something as warm and comforting as soup. Just be careful when it comes to soups that you buy in a can at the store, as they can contain a lot of salt, which isn’t good. Try making your own and then you can experiment with exactly what you want in it.
The point of winter is to try and stay active during it no matter how much you just want to curl up under a blanket and hibernate. Even things like shoveling the snow away can be helpful, but be careful not to overexert yourself. After all, shoveling can be dangerous to your joints, so make sure you don’t carry too much snow at once or look into those curved shovels so that you don’t have to bend down as much.
Thinking spring can really help you stick out the last few weeks of winter. Even preparing for some spring cleaning may be helpful if you feel like you’re trapped in your house for whatever reason. I like to go through my things and get rid of stuff I haven’t used in a while, but you might want to actually start cleaning a little early. It’s really up to you, and that’s the great thing about it!
If you are still having trouble, come into Wirth Chiropractic in Greenvile, NC and see what an adjustment and perhaps some diet and exercise plans can do for you. You never know how much it can change your life until you try it!
