5 tips for facing winter

Winter is here and we will have to live it to the best of our ability – both in terms of morale and tone. The context is difficult but by choosing optimism we increase our chances of experiencing it as well as possible. So here are some good helpful tips.


Increase your immune defenses.
One avoids getting tired and deficient by unbalanced diets or dietary patterns . Ideally, you should eat a bit of everything to be sure you don't miss anything. A well thought-out diet is therefore essential, possibly supplemented by vitamin supplements.

Eating greedy certainly, but also useful.
In winter, even if cravings for sweets and dishes in sauce increase to compensate for the cold, it is above all necessary to favor foods rich in vitamins, trace elements, minerals and antioxidants to stimulate and maintain our defences.
A few special mentions:
For vitamin C (anti-oxidant and stimulating immune defences) For vitamin D (involved in the regulation of inflammation and immune defences)


Protect yourself from the cold by not exposing yourself to it too often. Some think that it is good and particularly healthy to play sports outdoors when it is very cold. However, this is not a very good idea, unless you cover yourself particularly well and plan short sessions (no more than 45 minutes).


Take care of your gut microbiota. The intestine is considered to be the first immune organ in the body. Indeed, its 100,000 billion bacteria, mainly located in the colon, are regularly attacked by pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites. The healthier the microbiota, the better off we are. It can only be good to regularly eat fermented milks, yogurts – even to take regular courses of food supplements such as olive leaves with anti-inflammatory and pro-immune properties.


Sleeping enough and well Winter should be conducive to longer and more restorative sleep, as most animal species do. Without going so far as to hibernate (although teenagers are particularly good at doing so), we have everything we need to sleep better and more. Indeed, it gets dark from 6 p.m. and therefore our melatonin (the hormone that makes you sleep) is secreted earlier by our pituitary gland. But that's not counting on computers and laptops that force our brain to stay awake despite the signals of fatigue it sends us (fatigue, yawning).
