Winter boost your Wellbeing

As the temperature drops and the days get shorter, it’s tempting to hibernate and let your good routines take a back seat during the winter months. However, staying physically active and keep up your healthy habits during winter is not only possible but also essential for maintaining your overall health and wellbeing, both physically and mentally.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), it is a type of depression that occurs at a certain time of year, usually in the winter when sunlight exposure is reduced. Symptoms may include low energy, moodiness, changes in sleep and eating habits (usually wanting to eat and sleep more) and the desire to isolate from social contacts.

Fortunately, there are several ways to prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), beginning with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In Winning Tribe we talk about five different aspects of wellbeing, and you can focus on making changes in each of them during the cooler winter months.
Embrace the chill and don’t let your routines hibernate! Winter is no excuse to pause your journey for better wellbeing. Instead, dive into this article for practical tips on staying active, motivated, and beating the winter blues. 

  • Why not set up a small workout space at home. Invest in some basic fitness equipment like a yoga mat and rubber band. Follow simple online workout routines to stay physically active without leaving your home.
  • Book an appointment and meet up with a friend at the gym or for an outdoor walk. Having a workout partner means you’re less likely to skip a session and the commitment you make to your friend encourages consistency.
  • During the darker months nothing is so important than seizing the daylight, particularly in the morning, for an significant impact on your mood. It helps regulate the body’s production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of happiness and wellbeing.
  • It might not be the season for your favorite veggies but during winter our body craves (even more) food rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It helps strengthen your immune system, making your body more resilient to colds, flu, and other winter illnesses.
  • Maintaining and interacting contact with friends and loved ones will provide emotional support and help combat feelings of loneliness, depression, and anxiety that can occur during winter time. Social relationships are one of the important states of wellbeing.
  • The darker months are here to stay for a while so let´s do the best of the time. Why not learning something new? Take a course, read a book or embark on a personal journey getting to know yourself deeper, setting new goals and exploring your potential! 

Embrace the chill and live your personal journey of growth and wellbeing!
