3 easy steps to beat the winter blues


If you are affected by the shorter days and lack of sun, here are some tricks you should try:

  • Take 2,000 iu of vitamin D each evening before going to bed. This vitamin helps improve your bone health and immunity against heart disease & cancer
  • Do 20-30 minutes of moderate exercise per day (5 or more days a week); go outside as much as possible, no excuses, just dress adequatly for the weather and get some serotonine from the sunshine (even when it is cloudy you will get it)
  • Eat plenty of raw vegetables (6-8 portions (1/2 cup)/day). Eat less fruit as it is higher in sugar
