With the dark nights closing in it's time to start thinking about ways in which we can stay healthy (or at least try to be). As we all know during this period, it can sometimes feel like a bit of a chore trying to remain in good health especially during the festive season. During winter is very common for most people to feel tired and sluggish.

With this in mind it's important that we are all aware that by focusing on our self care we have a better chance of preventing any unwanted issues before they arise. This is obviously a much better option and can save us from having to fight them off later.

It's important for all to concentrate on taking special care of your health and wellness as this will give your body and mind balance and strength in preparing for the cold, long, dark and gloomy season. Here we have put together a few quick and easy ways in which you can look and feel your best without getting bored. Implementing small things daily will mean you're less likely to give up, instead you'll find they'll become a habit.

It's during the winter months that we see the highest peak of contagious illnesses and bugs doing the rounds. The change in weather conditions weakens your immune system, shorter days and as well as this for most people this time of year can be a busy one which can affect your physical and mental health. And as the availability of natural sunlight is limited throughout autumn/winter along with miserable weather, it's no surprise that many of us start to feel sluggish, tired and experience a low mood.

It's been proven that sunlight benefits us by helping improve and lift your mood through the release of a hormone called serotonin, so whilst the availability of sunlight is limited during the winter months it's still vital to try to spend some time outdoors, even when it's cold!

 If you can and it's safe for you to do so, then wrap up warm and go out for a walk but try to do this early in the day in order to get yourself some vitamin D from the natural daylight. This is also a great way to keep fit and get some exercise which will also help lift your mood and energy levels. It doesn't have to be excessive, just a quick walk outside will do your mind and body the world of good.

" Being in good health means a balanced harmonious state of physical, mental
and social well-being "

The elderly or vulnerable find this time of year extremely tough and lonely as the nights draw in and harsh weather conditions make it unsafe for them and they are often stuck at home unable to go outside for days, sometimes weeks at a time.

 Keeping our minds healthy and active is very important especially at this time of year and even more so now after the restrictions and lockdowns which has had big impact on people worldwide both mentally and physically. Try to stay connected with friends, family, neighbour's and please ensure you check in on the elderly or vulnerable.

The current and ongoing global pandemic has led to a significant focus on health and well-being. Many people have turned their attention to the ways they can make a more conscious effort in keeping themselves healthy. Living a healthy lifestyle is achieved by a sensible diet, regular exercise and ensuring your body is in optimal condition throughout by maintaining a balanced internal and external environment.

As a business within the wellness industry, we have noticed a big uptake from new customers starting their CBD journey. Health trends come and go, some disappear as quickly as they arrived, yet CBD is still as popular as it ever was. We believe that it has lasted the course of time simply because of the positive experiences and satisfaction being shared by those who already use it.  

essential fatty acids various foods containing these oils nopcoils

Back in ancient times, when only fresh meat, fruits, and vegetables were available to eat, it was easier to naturally keep our endocannabinoid system (ECS) in balance. But in today's modern and hectic life it is believed that over the last two decades within the typical average diet an imbalance of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids has risen. Typical modern day diets show that we now eat less fish, nuts, berries, and green leafy vegetables, all of which are the top sources of omega-3 and omega-6. Instead our diets now consist of too many carbs, sugary, high-fat and processed foods.

Eliminating essential fatty acids from the human diet can potentially cause health problems and without them entirely could pose serious consequences to our health.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

Within the human body is an incredibly complex and important endocannabinoid system, its exciting discovery is still relatively new so there is still a lot to be learnt about it and increasing research is being done around the world to find out exactly how it works. One thing we do know is that a healthy endocannabinoid system promotes balance and supports your body's overall wellbeing.

the Endocannabinoid System or ecs nopcoils

How…?... the ECS provides support to the all important ‘homeostasis’, which is the action or response that our body makes use of in order to actively take care of and keep internal conditions healthy and balanced, and so directly affects our overall health and wellness by playing a crucial role in regulating our internal immune system, health, and mind.

An established understanding is that natural cannabinoid compounds found within the cannabis plant can harmoniously assist the ECS naturally supporting our body throughout.

Here are a few of our easy to tipsto keep in mind this winter.

stay hydrated all year round drink water

Stay Hydrated - 

Many people don’t drink enough water during the autumn/winter months but it’s just as important to stay hydrated now as it was during spring and summer.

Drinking water will help flush out toxins, keep your skin hydrated and stop the harsh cold weather conditions from drying it out.

ensure that you eat well nopcoils

Eat Well - 

Nature produces an abundance of seasonal fruit and vegetables at this time of year and for good reason, they all help support your immune system.

 This timing is not coincidence, it is mother nature doing what she does best, so take notice! Oranges, blueberries, beetroot and kale to name a few, are great for vitamin C and antioxidants. So it’s important to remember to add more fruit and veg into your diet.

dont skip breakfast

Don’t Skip Breakfast - 

We all know that breakfast is important all year round but even more so during these months. Porridge is perfect as it is warming, filling and is packed full of fibre, adding honey and fruit will give you extra vitamins and antioxidants, it also has a slow energy release to help get through the day.

Get Some Natural Vitamin D -nopcoils

Get Some Natural Vitamin D -

The weather during these months can be difficult for many, but if you can and it's safe to do so then wrap up warm and go for a walk early in the day to try and get some vitamin D in natural daylight.

This is also a great way to keep fit, lift your mood and it will also help keep energy levels up too.

limit your caffeine intake drink smoothies instead

Limit Your Caffeine Intake -

For most people including us, caffeine is a must to help get through the dark cold months. However it can dramatically affect sleep and cause dehydration. So we advise you to try to limit your intake, we suggest instead to replace one cup a day with a highly nutritious, vitamin packed smoothie of your choice.

 Include a couple of drops of CBD for an added extra burst of natural goodness.  

add warming spice to foods where possible

Add Some Spice -

Add warming spices such as ginger, turmeric or chili to your foods where possible, these in particular hold great health benefits and have been used worldwide for centuries in order to help the human body warm during winter and harsh weather conditions. 

get plenty of sleep and rest

Get Plenty of Sleep - 

We all know that if you only get a short amount of sleep you are going to be agitated, restless and exhausted throughout the day leaving you unable to concentrate fully. This will eventually result in low mood especially during the winter season, leaving us at greater risk of suffering depression.

Try to go to bed early and get at least eight hours so you can get the rest you need. To feel the benefit of this, stick to a regular routine and you will notice a huge difference in a few days.
