6 Simple, Natural Ways to Stay Healthy This Winter

6 Simple, Natural Ways to Stay Healthy This Winter 0

As the days start getting shorter and nights start getting colder, most of us are more prone to feeling under the weather this time of year. Not only are viruses more common, over 3 million people are affected by seasonal depression in the winter and fall.
Fortunately, there are a few natural, simple ways to help your body and mind stay healthy as the seasons change. 

Vitamin D

Shorter days = less sunlight, so it may be harder for your body to create enough vitamin D. A vitamin D deficiency can cause symptoms including muscle weakness and fatigue. Vitamin D has also been linked to immune response and mood. Although you may not need to take a vitamin D supplement year round, taking this vitamin in the winter may help. 

Light Therapy

Not having enough sunlight can be responsible for not only vitamin D deficiency, but hormonal imbalances and sleep cycle issues as well. 

Light therapy can be done virtually anywhere, and requires little effort. A bright, full spectrum light without UV is simply set up and turned on. You can also simply make it a habit to sit near a sunny window or be outside in the sunlight each day.


In nature, other animals typically sleep more during the winter months. You may also feel less energetic than usual. Making sure you're getting a full 8 hours of sleep nightly lets you fully recharge while allowing your body to follow its natural rhythm. Have a hard time winding down? Aromatherapy might help: try any of our lavender products in your bedtime routine.

Immune Boosters

Certain supplements and vitamins can boost your immune system for extra protection. Specifically, vitamin C and zinc can help immune systems. Echinacea has also been shown to stimulate immune systems and fight inflammation. 

Hand Washing

Washing hands is the most efficient way of preventing illness. Hand washing can help prevent the flu and the common cold. Our foaming hand soap is a much-loved favorite that won't dry our your hands. Try lemongrass, lavender, or unscented.


Many conventional home heating methods can dry your skin and respiratory system out. This can lead to sore throats and dry skin. Drink at least 2.5L of water daily to remain hydrated and healthy. Healthy habit goal: keep your insulated water bottle with you throughout the day. 

The best way to stay healthy this winter is by being proactive. By following these easy tips, you can avoid illness and stay healthy this winter.
