10 Ways to Beat the Winter Blues

Leah Rosin-PritchardComment

During the holiday season, it’s easy to fall into habits not beneficial to our health. We want to curl up inside and stay there, and to eat whatever delicious treats and desserts we have around. It’s important to stay energized and excited about a healthy living style so we don’t fall too deep into winter blues.



Here are some tips to keep you feeling fresh!


Stay active-

  • Bundle up and go for a walk. Getting back inside will feel so good and so will the walk.

  • Bundle up less and go for a bike ride, that will warm you up!

  • Boost your mood by experiencing the beautiful outdoors.

  • Find favorite destinations for your exploration.


Remind yourself of healthy foods that keep you feeling great-

  • One smoothie I love includes avocado, cucumber, banana, spinach, and coconut water.

  • Eat nuts and seeds, like almonds or pumpkin seeds. They’re tasty and they fill you up.

  • Drink tea! It warms you up to really embrace the season.

  • Find alternatives to unhealthy desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth and boost your health.

  • Get motivated to make your own meals, with fresh vegetables and a lot of spices!

  • Buy a new cook book! This can excite you to create and indulge in new ways.


We hope these tips can help you stay healthy, active, and having fun this winter season!
