Feeling lethargic, achy, generally not your best? This could be due to lack of sunshine in these cold and dark winter months. Vitamin D is essential for those of us who live in climates where we don’t see the sun as often or need to be covered by coats, hats, gloves and scarves. Here are a few ways I keep up my spirits and energy during winter months. This is the brand I like, NOW Supplements, Vitamin D-3 5000 IU, 240 Softgels. Please check with your doctor to get the correct dosage.
Spend some time outdoors everyday.
When inside, I sit by a window whenever I can and make sure to look outside periodically.
Exercise is especially important this time of year. We get fewer minutes of passive exercise during winter months. As we all know, exercise is a huge mood booster.
Try to get a good night sleep.
Stay connected! It’s easy to binge-watch Netflix when it’s cold outside but isolation can create a feeling of disconnect. Even if you have to force yourself, try to connect with someone at least once every day.
