5 win­ter health tips for se­niors

Monthly Chronicle - - Health & Well-Being - SUE BUCKLE

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.
