TIPS TO KEEP YOU WARM THIS WINTER
Keeping the cold out and the warmth in… our top tips to keep you warm, cosy and healthy this winter!
COSY WHEAT BAGS
These are my favourite things in the winter time. Especially around period time, this is amazing to put on your abdomen before your period is due to help ease the flow of your cycle. Also try putting one over your shoulders/neck to unwind after a big day at work, this will help to keep your meridians strong at the back of your neck to help protect against cold/flu.
GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Winter is about slowing down, recovering and preparing again for the warmer months. Our bodies need a decent, good quality sleep to restore everything in preparation for the next day. Make sure you are getting at least 7 hours of sleep, often throughout winter, our body actually wants and needs more than this, so listen to your body and sleep when you’re tired.
SCARVES, BLANKETS AND JUMPERS
Layers should be your best friend throughout winter. Keeping warm and covered is super important to ward off sickness and protect your immune system. Scarves are really helpful at keeping your neck covered and to reduce the risk of any sickness entering your body. Keep an extra jumper or jacket in your car or at work to keep you covered.
WINTER ESSENTIAL OILS
A good combination to have in your diffuser at home throughout winter is lavender, lemon, peppermint and eucalyptus- this has great antimicrobial benefits as well as helps to open and clear the sinuses. This combination is calming, clearing and uplifting to help boost energy, calm the nervous system and clear the head from congestion.
WINTER WARMING TEAS
Teas like cinnamon, ginger, peppermint or lemongrass are really delicious to have during winter. These teas are nourishing and have different effects on the body to help support the immune and digestive system to work efficiently.
