As temperatures drop this winter, the risk of health issues may rise – but understanding these risks and taking proper precautions can help you through this winter season.
By combining cold, dry air with weakened immune systems, less daylight, and more time cooped up indoors, viruses are more likely to strike. To combat this, it is important to wash your hands frequently, continue to maintain a healthy diet, and regular exercise. Keeping your immune system strong is crucial throughout the cold winter months.
You may find that your body tends to be “achier” during the winter. When in a colder environment you may notice that your fingers and toes “go numb” first, this is because your body will try to conserve heat towards the center of your body as your vital organs are the main focus. You may be wondering, well how can I improve my circulation? Some of the more common answers include drinking plenty of water, bundling up when you go outside, and engaging in regular exercise. Another, more exciting option, is massage! Massage has been proven to increases blood and lymph circulation, as well as reduce stress and boost immunity.
Massage also can help fight off, as some may call, “seasonal depression.” With less daylight, and seemingly more deadlines at work, it is hard to keep productivity high. By having regular office massage, you can keep yourself and colleagues engaged, productive, and less stressed.
