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
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.
