The temperature is dropping and the layers are building – cold weather is upon us! I am especially convinced of this given the recent increased sniffles in our home and at the office. Changing seasons mean changing environments, a reality for which our bodies often need time and extra TLC!

During the cold weather season, I begin to ramp up my self-care rituals in hopes of warding off anything that might arise from a weakened immune system. Today, I am sharing four tips on staying healthy this winter season. Read on below for more information!

  1. Layer up (socks included)! When you travel especially, it is important to keep your circulation moving and support overall health with layers of warmth. Keep a pair of socks handy, and of course – gloves if you are in extreme cold outside!
  2. Wash your hands (and add in some lotion). Cold weather means frequent hand washing. Carry antibacterial gel and/or wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap. Make sure to find a great lotion to add – increased washing can minimize moisture!
  3. Drink up! To support your overall immune system (and flush out the bad) increase your water intake during the winter season.
  4. Stay moving, and fuel up. Continued exercise is a great way to warm up the body and increase overall blood flow. Supplement your movement with fruits and vegetables for overall health support.
