On really cold days you can feel listless and just want to stay under the comforter or curled up on the sofa with a throw.

It’s just harder to get yourself going, especially if you have to go outside in foul weather.

But life has to go on irrespective of the time of year or the weather.

And you can make it easier on yourself by boosting your energy levels.

1. Drink Plenty of Water

Drink Plenty of Water

Keeping up hydration in winter is just as important as in summer.

Resist the temptation of curling up with a bottle of vino and a bag of pork rinds after work - drinking alcohol will not hydrate you but will depress you instead and quickly drain all the energy from you.

Around 8 glasses of water a day will keep you hydrated and help to flush toxins out of your system.

If you don't like plain tap or mineral water add a little lime, lemon or grapefruit or even frozen berries or cucumber to it.

Change flavors every day and you won't notice you're guzzling 8 glasses of water a day.2

2. Increase Your Iron Intake

Increase Your Iron Intake

There are numerous ways to keep your energy levels in winter high and perky.2

Lack of iron commonly affects women more than men, because women who experience heavy periods are often suffering from iron deficiency, a condition that only robs them of energy, makes them irritable and tired, but can also lead to serious conditions such as anemia.

You can either take iron tablets to supplement your iron intake, or turn to proven iron-sources like leafy green vegetables, red meats and nuts.

If you like smoothies, switch to the green variety in the morning - they contain the essential vitamins and nutrients that will keep your energy levels high for the rest of the day.
