5 winter health tips for seniors
Winter time is a time to nurture ourselves a bit more. Whilst our bodies always need to be taken care of, during winter we need to make sure that the dark days, cold and stormy weather and winter sniffles don’t take a toll on our well-being. we’re ready to face whatever happens in our day. We need to get around seven to eight hours of sleep each night. So snuggle up in bed, perhaps go to bed a little earlier than usual so that you can get plenty of good quality sleep. There’s nothing wrong with a short daytime nap in front of the fire on a cold day either! we’re indoors more, to learn a new skill, take up a hobby, broaden our horizons. Watch a classic movie, read, play board games with friends, learn new computer skills, have some ‘me-time’, challenge yourself with new recipes, plan a holiday, learn to knit…. the possibilities are endless.
