The holidays are a bright spot during the winter, but the season is just getting started as we ring in the New Year! Some climates have mild winters where a light jacket is all that’s required. However, in most places it’s important to keep preventative measure in mind to maintain optimal health through colder temperatures. It’s essential to wear several layers, get plenty of rest and even supplement with herbs and herbal formulas to get through the season while still feeling well.
Many people find that they’re less energized and creatively drained during the winter months. Some of this has to do with a lack of sunlight and therefore, Vitamin D. While making sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D is important, you can also supplement with Ashwagandha. It can help elevate energy levels in the body and promote a healthy response to stressors.
Don’t underestimate the power of a cup of Ginger tea. Not only is Ginger a great winter warming herb, it also helps keep your blood circulating on cold winter days. A cup of Ginger tea is like a cozy blanket wrapped around your body. Ancient texts say Ginger is capable of awakening the senses and supporting vitality. Not to mention, it is simply delicious!
