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 to 4,000 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
  • Workout with me!  We even have fitness classes outside:  schedule

    - Jim,

    Mel, you are an excellent teacher. I love the aquatic class you teach for us at Gallagher’s Canyon.   I love the way you stay out of the water and show us what to do ….. we could see then !!! Each class use a different strengthening tool which was fun.
