With so many food-centric holidays packed into the winter months, it’s hard to keep your weight under control. That paired with less sunlight and cold weather, and it’s even harder to stay healthy. But don’t let those little things keep you down this winter. Here are five easy ways for you to stay happy and healthy this winter.
Be Good to Your Skin
Although the sun might only make weak appearances during the winter months, it’s important to remember sunscreen. If you’re outside on the slopes or building a snow fort with the kids, don’t forget the sunscreen. UV rays mirror off bright landscapes and can cause sunburns easily. Also, don’t forget to moisturize. Less humidity in the air can wreak havoc on a man’s skin.
Also, don’t forget your feet. Heavy shoes, boots, and socks can take their toll on your feet. Moisturize your feet daily to keep fungi from entering cracked winter skin. And lastly, wear socks with synthetic fibers to wick away extra moisture.
Remember to Stay Hydrated
It’s easy to forget to drink plenty of water when the sun is hiding behind the clouds. However, the lack of humidity in the winter months can dry you out quickly. So, keep a bottle of water with you at all times, no matter the temperature outside. Staying hydrated will improve your energy levels and help you feel better overall.
