Spring is still a few weeks away and till then, it’s all cold and gray. You may be the one favouring winters over summers which last for much more duration, but one has to admit that winter at its peak is not to the liking of even those who love the chills.
However, there are ways you can combat the cold:
One thing winters do to everybody is that they make you lazy. Thus, the prospect of exercising seems a little unlikely. However, that is the best way you can keep yourself warm and energetic for the rest of the day. It’s all about taking out some time out of your schedule - be it hectic or a little less packed. It is ‘hard’ work only in the initial few days, after a while you would be very comfortable as this new entry will easily seep into your daily calendar.
2. Keep A Check On Your Diet
This advice has been overstated a zillion times, starting from the school days, but there is no harm in giving it a try. For winters, avoid sugar, rice and few dairy products as well. You would need a greater intake of complex carbohydrates like wheat bread and brown rice. Also consume food items like mackerel and flax seeds. Dry fruits work well for keeping the body warm too. Add a bowl of soup to your diet every day and you are in for a better solution to combat the chill.
3. Avoid the Drinking Spree
Nothing seems more alluring than sipping a glass of wine, and snuggling quietly in some corner of your room. Alcohol, more than anything else, works as a depressant rather than warming your body. It would give you more blues, worse than the winter blues you are already troubled with.
4. Have Fun
Don’t run away from the cold, rather embrace it with both arms. Go for an adventurous trip somewhere. Opt for winter sports. There is no dearth of options for winter getaways. At the end of the day, it’s all about keeping your energy levels high.
5. Spend As Much Time Under The Sun As You Can
The sun keeps you warm and it gives you Vitamin-D in abundance. You need not know any other reason. So, soak in as much of the warm rays as possible, and let them work during the chilled periods of time!
Once you are geared up to face the chill, even the freezing cold of winter can be a lot of fun. So, clad up and enjoy the season!
