Wellness through winter

Sunday, August 11, 2019
Unless you’re mad on winter sports, most people view winter as a season to just ‘get through’. On particularly cold nights you might even find yourself planning an escape or booking a getaway to somewhere warmer, or even just reminiscing over warmer summer days. 

But if you’re one of the many who is stuck in-place trudging through the cold, then try these four chilly season wellness tips:

  1. Eat well: Keeping on top of your nutrition is always a great first step towards wellness. Try hearty soups and casseroles or bone broths and stews
  2. Keep warm: Layer up with socks, hats, beanies, scarves and gloves
  3. Exercise: There are many options to keep you active throughout the colder months. While indoor gyms are probably the most inviting option, a brisk walk on a winter’s day can be very scenic and energising
  4. Stay social: Spending time with those near and dear to you is always great for your health. If you’re stuck for ideas, try a shared winter potluck dinner with family or friends.

Additionally, it can be important to give your immune system a helping hand. Blackmores Immune Defence Ultra is the latest addition to the Blackmores winter wellness range. It’s packed with powerful herbs such as potent reishi mushroom, astragalus, echinacea and siberian ginseng, along with minerals zinc, selenium and vitamin C and betacarotene – an ultimate immune-supporting combination. This unique combination is indeed an ultra-immune system defence and can be used to support immunity and also recovery when you’re feeling under the weather. 

Blackmores Executive B Stress Formula is also a great formula to try when you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps or particularly stressed out at work or home. It’s packed with B vitamins, minerals such as magnesium and calming herbs like oats and passionflower to support your nervous system and ease feeling of overwhelm to help you feel lighter and brighter.
