Get your body winter-ready

The sun may still be shining in the sky, but it’s impossible to escape the fact that winter is around the corner. In just a couple of months, the warmth you’ve gotten used to is going to disappear, tagging out to be replaced by the bitter cold. For a lot of people, this time of year brings with it a lot of discomfort. No one likes to be cold, and it can be hard to rely on your clothing to remedy this issue, but you still have time to make changes in other areas. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring some of the best ways to prepare your body for winter.

Exercise: Not a lot of people realise quite how much of an impact exercise can have on their body. Your core temperature is directly influenced by the strength of your heart, with the kinetic energy it exerts with every beat contributing to the warmth you feel. By focusing on some cardio prior to the winter months, you could give yourself an extra couple of degrees of comfort, and it doesn’t have to take over you life.

Immunity: The common cold is a pesky illness. Taking refuge in your nose and lying dormant for months at a time, this disease will strike when the temperature drops, leaving your body to fight it off. Thankfully, there are loads of ways to improve your immunity before winter rolls around, with options like Sage Tea being some of the easiest to use. Your exercise will also help with this area, giving your body the strength it needs to overcome the microbes which are invading it.

Hair: Like other animals, humans grow hair as a way to keep warm. Of course, while you may have evolved to lose a lot of this protection, you still have a good deal of it on top of your head. Growing out your hair before winter is an excellent way to provide yourself with a scarf and hat combination. There are loads of winter styles out there, and you can find ones which you love without having to look very far.

Weight: Finally, as the last area to consider, it’s time to think about weight. Contrary to common thought, gaining weight isn’t likely to make you feel any warmer. Losing weight, though, can often make you feel much colder than you usually would, and there’s some science to back this up. Larger people will have bigger red blood cells. As you drop the pounds, your body won’t be able to keep up, leaving you with blood which has a much larger surface area than it should for someone your size.

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your winter preparations. Getting your body ready for this time of year is just as important as the time you put in for summer, even though you’ll be spending much of the season covered up. Winter will be much easier with the right work in place.
