Video: ❶ How To Stay Healthy In Winter
Winter can be called not only sometimes the holidays, but also the "cold season". In order not to be afraid to miss all the fun while lying at home with a temperature, follow these simple tips. Location: Location: In order not to give off the heat of the body, in the cold the vessels reflexively narrow, including the coronary ones. It is fraught with a heart attack. Men are much more susceptible to it, however, everyone needs to dress warmly in winter. Wear a hat. Hypothermia of the head can lead to loss of consciousness or weakness, chronic migraines and neuralgia of the facial nerves. A warm hood is even better than a hat, as it also covers the neck. But if the hood interferes with your peripheral vision too much, then protect your throat with a scarf.
Try to wear clothes made from natural fabrics. Do not forget about gloves so as not to irritate your hands from the cold - pimples. Remember, too, that warm underwear isn't necessarily ugly or uncomfortable. It protects women from numerous diseases. Men's underpants keep the temperature of the male genitals, which is important for preventing inflammation of the prostate gland.
It is also very important to monitor the content of vitamins in the diet, because in winter the body's need for them increases. The most essential at this time are vitamins C and D. The first is responsible for the resistance to colds, the second - for good mood and bone strength. The trace element selenium strengthens the immune system. It is found in pistachios, porcini mushrooms, grapes, oysters. Nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, and pine nuts) and lean meats (chicken, turkey, and young beef) are also useful in winter. Rich in animal and plant proteins, these foods will fill your energy shortages. Include vitamin drinks in the menu: mineral water, herbal teas, cranberry juice will help remove toxins from the body.
On the contrary, you need to consume less carbohydrates: their excess makes a person sluggish, including slowing down recovery if you are still sick. Do not lean on hot spices: they are harmful to the already vulnerable mucous membrane of the nasopharynx, throat and esophagus, which is already vulnerable in winter. And the damaged mucous membrane is an excellent springboard for the microbes that cause sore throat and pharyngitis.
In winter, the body suffers greatly from a lack of ultraviolet radiation. Even the so-called "photo-dependent depression" can begin. Therefore, try to catch all the light that is available to you, turn on brighter lamps at home and at work, you can even visit solariums - not to sunbathe, but so as not to become sad.
Also, during the cold season, it is worth limiting heavy physical activity, as they reduce immunity. Aerobic exercise will suffice.
