Winter!!!! Such a beautiful season! There is something so magical about snow flakes and let’s not even start talking about all that fabulous decor!!!! Yet it can be totally depressing here in New York! I swear we only have two seasons here. Summer for 2 months and then winter for 10! There really isn’t any in between when it comes to weather. I’m either rocking that bikini poolside or I’m snuggled in at home in my favorite footie pajamas!
Baby it’s cold outside!!! It can be pretty easy to let our wellness slip away when locked indoors due to the freezing temperatures! But don’t fret!!! With these 5 Tips For Winter Wellness, you will be able to keep your mental wellness in check all winter long!
Yes, the most wonderful time of the foodie year is finally upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself to stay skinny! Looking for a healthier alternative snack? Go ahead and indulge a little with The Skinny Nut. That’s right, Wonderful Pistachios are a great addition to any gathering with your family, friends, or community!
Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted and Roasted No Salt are dry roasted Pistachios with no added oil. They are also Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-Free, Kosher certified, Halal certified, and vegan making them the perfect alternative snack for all your holiday needs!
Plus, cracking each shell may actually help you slow down and eat mindfully! So head to your local Walmart, toss a bag or two into your cart and crack, snack, and meditate on a healthy you :):)
2. Eat Protein
While the farmers market may be closed and your garden covered in snow, it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re body is getting protein! Protein helps keep blood sugar levels stable and can reduce sugar cravings! Many people load up on carbohydrates & sugars over the winter which can compromise the immune system! Known for protein and fiber, Wonderful Pistachios are a smart snack! Another fabulous reason to keep a bag of Wonderful Pistachios on hand all season long!
BONUS!!! Plus, the green and red-purple hues in Wonderful Pistachios come from antioxidants. So, treat yourself to nutritious pistachios. When it comes to your health, they pass with flying colors.
3. Stay Social
The winter months can naturally cause people to turn inward and be more isolated. With holiday party season right around the corner, make a date with a bestie and keep spirits high.
One of my favorite charities during the holiday season is Toys for Tots! I’m always attending Toys for Tots social events since the holiday season is a time of giving! Western New York isn’t exactly the wealthiest area, so I have seen the Christmas miracles Toys for Tots gives so many children in my area.
This season, Wonderful Pistachios is taking the whole giving thing to the max!!! Wonderful Pistachios will be donating $.10/unit for Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted and Wonderful Pistachios Roasted No Salt sold at Walmart up to $100k benefiting Toys for Tots! The collection period will run from November 1 – December 24, 2019! So #GoNutsForTots & head to your local Walmart! Heck, make a shopping date with a family member and Go Nuts For Tots together and stock up now :):)
Just because the sunshine is hiding under all that snow, doesn’t give you an excuse not to stay active! If the gyms are too crowded due to New Years Resolution folks, try mall walking! If the roads are closed due to a blizzard?! Hit up YouTube and try a new at home workout! Exercise naturally supports a healthy mood! A healthy mood is crucial to wellness!!
5. Extra Sleep
With the shorter, cooler days and longer nights, our bodies naturally need more sleep! If you start rubbing your eyes earlier than usual, take the hint and hit the sack! A sleep deprived body is more prone to illness, plus it can put us in a bitter mood which is definitely not good in the wellness department! A well rested body is a happier body that’s for sure!
