I’m exceptionally happy that I’ve easily navigated the winter cold and flu season feeling GREAT – not even a sniffle, despite spending lots of time around people who have been or currently are sick, sometimes passing their germs around to others in the office.
So that’s telling me that my clean eating diet and healthy lifestyle have a lot of value – all my efforts to prepare healthy, whole foods, often locally grown, do make a difference even though sometimes I’m super busy and could be spending my time on other creative endeavors.
Truth be told, being healthy requires time, effort and money. Now by that, I don’t mean everything you buy has to be organic and the highest quality – regular conventional produce can keep you plenty healthy. With the right approach, I think any of us can maintain our health this winter without going broke when utilizing a range of different strategies to make it happen, so of which don’t cost a thing.
Here’s my top 10 list for what’s working for me this winter. I bet you might have other strategies that you’ve been using, so please share your healthy secrets:
I think one of the most powerful strategies for me has been going to bed earlier, getting more rest and increasing the quality of my sleep (and limiting my time with technology at night helps a lot too – all those devices we love so much can overstimulate us making good quality sleep hard to find).
So what have you tried this winter that’s keeping you super healthy that you think is a must-do strategy? Do tell!
I consider myself a writer, but most days I’m doing a little bit of everything: writing, blogging, design, photography, editing video, marketing, business strategy, travel planning, email wrangling and baby chasing. I write travel stories and consult.
