Updated: Jan 20
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” sings Andy Williams in all the shops and cafes around the world. Christmas is just around the corner with just a bit more than two weeks left till the biggest feast of the season. The fairy lights in Winter Wonderland are on and everyone is getting ready for the holidays. That’s the best part of winter season.
However, there is always another side of the coin which in case of many means getting cold and fever every few weeks. This autumn we tried to be on guard of seasonal colds for you and gave some of our non-trivial suggestions for natural remedies that could be found in our healthy vending machines. It did help our team to survive through the fall, but December appeared to be a much stronger enemy.
That’s how we decided to also find the ways to support our immune system through the right exercises. We looked at what experts said and as usual prepared results of this research for you. So, let’s get straight to the sports you should do this winter to give a booster to your health.
Proven on the members of The Jar Healthy Vending team outdoor ice skating can really help to stay strong this season. It does give you the opportunity to develop resistance to cold in a long run. First of all, it means learning for your lungs how to function in a low temperature and adjusts your breathing to the winter conditions. As a bonus it also burns around 260 calories per 30 minutes session, so you can enjoy your le chocolat chaud.
Go to the gym to do some lifting or, as a tip, exercise through holding too many bags of Christmas presents. Whatever you choose as an option weights training is a vital component of supporting your immune health. As you build the muscles it also helps to store the protein in your body. And why protein is such a good guy for us? It is made up of amino acids which help our organism to produce white blood cells and anti-bodies. Those are essential to keep up with winter weather.
Get yourself to the world of mindfulness. They say most of our illnesses and diseases come from our mind and not from the the external environment. This Christmas get yourself a yoga mat and get rid of the runny nose and regular cough. Let your stress stay behind you, forget the pressures and breath deep. It will ventilate your lungs and fill your organs with the oxygen needed to push out the toxins from your body.
From the whole Jar team, we wish you to stay strong and healthy this winter season! In case of emergency immune booster don’t forget to grab yourself some of our vitamin boosters like PRESS Ginger Super Shot before starting your day or get PRESS Chickpeas & Barley Chunky Broth for lunch to keep yourself warm.
