- Move: Rug up and get outside – great for clearing your mind and gaining a Vitamin D boost that we can lack over winter. According to the Cancer Council, “The best source of vitamin D is UVB radiation from the sun. In late autumn and winter in some southern parts of Australia, when the UV Index falls below 3, spend time outdoors in the middle of the day with some skin uncovered. Being physically active (e.g. gardening or going for a brisk walk) also helps boost vitamin D levels.”
- Connect: It is tempting to stay inside over the winter months, hibernating and binge watching your latest show – but research shows staying connected is so important for our mental health, so look for cosy ways to keep in touch with family and friends.
- Hydrate: Drier skin, headaches? It’s so easy to forget to stay hydrated when the temperatures drop, but it’s important to drink plenty of during the winter months too. Around 6-8 glasses a day is recommended.
