Body: Vitamins & Supplements
26 Jun 2022
Some of us love Winter. Oh yes, we said it! Duvet days, Netflix and chill, and of course, hot chocolate with all the extras. Speaking of which, there’s a reason those extras may be on the menu this season. You’re not alone if you find yourself concerned about overeating when the temperatures drop. After all it’s such a pain to get summer ready after indulging. But, when it’s colder, our brains tell our bodies to eat more calorie-dense food. This is, so we have more energy to keep warm. The brain is also telling the body to add an extra sweater. But sometimes, once we’re warm and cosy – and onto that second plate of pasta – we can forget we’re full and overeating. And it could be a cycle. Come Spring, the regret sets in if you feel you’d like to be a certain shape or silhouette again. This is where mindful eating, exercise and taking carefully chosen supplements can help in the coming months.
Summer Ready: Eating Thoughtfully For The Season Ahead
We all know the saying, “Summer bodies are made in Winter,” but how does that help when your brain tells you it needs to eat to stay warm? It’s about eating well. Skipping meals in Winter is said to weaken your immune system. Not what you want in Winter! And missing meals all the time is known to drop your immunity levels significantly. The answer to eating well yet mindfully lies in nutrient-dense food.

Walk The Winter Body Away: Exercise To Look and Feel Better
The cold doesn’t make it easy to get out and move your body. But the cold may be even more of a reason to move. Research says even a brisk walk in the chilly air has health benefits. So, grab your coat and beanie and remember that with each step you take, you could be helping your system fight off infection. Exercise like walking and running is also winter-friendly as it requires very little gear or preparation. Temperatures may be a concern, but lack of rainfall in areas like Gauteng interferes less with your walking and running group. Are you not loving getting your sweat in the cold? Indoor swimming in your gym’s heated pool is an excellent form of cardio.
Your Body and UV Exposure
Yes, it’s gloomy outside, but it’s always sunny somewhere in South Africa. And by September, many of us will be saying hello to Spring. Now is the time to do the groundwork, and that’s where supplements can help your body cope with the sun better.
