Winter may not always a wonderland, especially for those of us who hate being cold. The winter weather can also be very uncomfortable for some, as it hinders them from doing their usual favorite activities. People are also most prone to develop Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which according to Real Simple is the cause of about 10% to 20% of recurring cases of depression among women in the United States. To improve living conditions during the cold season, here are some tips and winter warming essentials.
Winter Coping Tips
- Stay hydrated. Just because it’s cold and we don’t sweat as much as in other seasons, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t grab a glass of water. Eat your salads and drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
- Stay active to increase energy levels. The cold can make us feel lethargic at times and increase the risk for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Hitting the gym can help keep energy levels high and the blues away.
- Moisturize your skin. Last but certainly not the least, keep your skin hydrated with deep moisturizing creams or topical solutions that can help prevent drying and cracking, and help keep moisture in.
