Wellness Wednesday

Snow hikes 1

Winter seems to be the time of year when our health can be at it's worst.  Often, it's not the weather but it's poor habits we have acquired that cause many of our health problems.  MindBodyGreen offers the following ten things to avoid to stay healthy over the winter season:

  1. Sugar and artificial sweeteners
  2. Being a couch potato
  3. Stress
  4. Drinking
  5. Smoking
  6. Processed foods
  7. Cold medication
  8. Staying up too late
  9. Negative attitude
  10. Artificial heat

For more details on why to avoid these behaviors, go here.

But I love artificial heat!

What I notice is that I do eat more in the winter. Last night I wanted a little something, so I ate an orange + thought that would tide me over. Nope, then a sandwich, then a small bowl of popcorn. I anticipate that I will add a few pounds during this time, but take it off in the spring.

Shona, I love artificial heat too - I will never adjust to this "cold" climate!
