A Santa who spreads the gift good health, & gives every solution to any health problem one might have.There’s no arguing the fact that prevention is better than cure. So here are a few tips by Health Santa to make your Christmas merrier and healthier.
Don’t skip meals to lose weight
It is on everybody’s mind that skipping a meal or two helps lose weight. Well, that’s not true at all. Skipping meals is never a good idea. To lose weight and maintain it, it is necessary to reduce the number of calories consumed and exercise accordingly.
Start taking more Vitamin D for higher insulin levels
To increase metabolism, it is necessary to have adequate insulin levels in the body. The right amount of insulin levels help with metabolism. The best source to increase it is to take in as much Vitamin D as possible.
Have dry fruits for a healthy winter skin
It’s winter and undoubtedly we all suffer from dry, pale skin with lots of dead cells creeping up on the surface. Dry fruits such as almonds & walnuts are one of the healthiest ways to give your skin all the essential nutrients it needs to remain healthy despite the biting cold.
Add dairy to your daily diet
In winters, it is natural for our immune system to take a hit. This makes us extra prone to bacteria and viruses. Adding dairy products can do wonders for your immunity, especially in the winters.
Don’t ignore your sleep
Workout can be tiring and to reap all its benefits, adequate rest & good sleep are a must. Having a minimum sleep of 6-8 hours allows your body to repair and grow muscle tissue.
