6 Ways To Embrace Hygge, The Danish Secret To Staying Happy During Winter | Rodale’s Organic Life

The next time you start grumbling about chilly weather or the fact that it’s now pitch black when you leave the office, think of Denmark. There, the sun isn’t coming up until nearly 8:40 AM, and it’s all but gone by 3:30 in the afternoon. And during January and February, the thermometer rarely makes it above freezing.Danish people know full well that winter is a long, hard slog. But instead of letting it get them down—or just going into hibernation mode for five months—they have something called hygge (pronounced hoo-guh).

Winter Immune System Boosters

Don’t get sick!!

So winter is officially here.  The mornings are cold, the evenings are dark…….

Top this with the stresses of daily life, public transport and possibly an inadequate diet, and you’ll soon experience the discomfort of a ‘common cold’.

The great news is that much of what our bodies need to fight off infection is found in the foods we eat, so beef up your immune system and add some of these great immune boosting nutrients to your diet.

cold-and-fluVitamin C
Vitamin C tops the list of immune boosters. There has been more research about the immune-boosting effects of Vitamin C than perhaps any other nutrient. Vitamin C is available naturally in many fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, kiwi fruits, mango, citrus fruits, sweet peppers, asparagus, green vegetables and parsley. Eat your five portions a day and increase the production of infection-fighting, white blood cells and antibodies, as well as levels of interferon, the antibody that coats cell surfaces, which prevents the entry of viruses.

Vitamin E
This important antioxidant and immune booster doesn’t get as much press as vitamin C, but is important for a healthy immune system. Vitamin E stimulates the production of natural killer cells and enhances the production of B-cells, the immune cells that produce antibodies that destroy bacteria. To get your daily Vitamin E dose eat foods such as sardines, sunflower and sesame seeds, oats, brown rice and dark green leafy vegetables.

Beta carotene
Beta carotene is another powerful antioxidant that mops up excess free radicals and increases the number of infection-fighting cells. The body converts beta carotene to Vitamin A, which itself has anti-cancer properties and immune-boosting functions. Foods high in beta carotene include watercress, apricot, papaya, pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes, carrots and green leafy vegetables.

Zinc
Zinc is an essential element and critical to the work of more than three hundred enzymes in the body which assist in cell reproduction, maintain vision, wound healing and enhancing immune function (just to mention some). Zinc, like vitamin C, also possesses direct antiviral activity. The food highest in zinc are oysters but if you (like me) can’t stomach them, have some pumpkin seeds, fish, egg yolks, nuts (like almonds or cashews), turkey, lean red meat or spinach. (If you’re curious if you’re zinc deficient,get in touch with me and we can meet up for a quick, easy and free test.)

Garlic
Garlic is nature’s antibiotic. Over 1,000 studies have shown that garlic’s immune-boosting properties are due to the sulphur compounds found in allicin, an antioxidant that’s released when fresh garlic is crushed.

Now here are two more factors for all those sleep deprived and sociable people who want to make sure their immune system doesn’t get depressed: sleep and alcohol.

Research shows that not enough sleep leads to more colds and flu, and excessive alcohol intake can harm the body’s immune system in two ways. First, it produces an overall nutritional deficiency, depriving the body of valuable immune-boosting nutrients. Second, alcohol, like sugar, consumed in excess can reduce the ability of white cells to kill germs.

Now you’ve got the tools, so stay healthier this winter

Starbucks is selling a cup of tea which is more calorific than a Mars Bars

Starbucks’ new Citrus Mint Green Tea Latte contains a whopping 321 calories in every 470ml ‘grande’ sized cup – more calories than one average-sized Mars Bar and two standard 355ml cans of Coke.

These drinks contain 39.2g, close on 10 teaspoons, of sugar, mainly from the citrus & mint flavour syrups……

Matcha green tea, the tea used in these drinks,  is full of catechins, which are some of the most potent and beneficial antioxidants. Why oh why counter the benefits by adding so much sugar?

Starbucks claim this new range “uplifts the mind and spirit”….. No, it give you a huge sugar rush, insulin spikes which can be catastrophic for the body, and a then a sugar crash…….

 

 

If you want the benefits of a high quality green tea based drink, consider the Healthy Herbalife Instant Beverage, available in 3 flavours

Less that 10 calories each drink, AND it burns calories as well!!

Win a 1 Month Herbalife Breakfast Plan

Of the three main meals of the day, breakfast is the meal that is most likely to be skipped

 

Breakfast is the first meal of the day, literally the meal that ‘breaks’ the overnight ‘fast’.

The body uses up the FUEL you put in during the day, to make repairs to your body while you sleep. Therefore when you waken, your body NEEDS fluids, and nutrients to keep you in full health.

BREAKFAST is the meal that the body needs to top up its glucose levels, which is the body’s main source of energy, along with vitamins and minerals. It also fuels the muscles that are necessary for physical activity.

im-09

If you skip breakfast, you’ll have a shorter attention span, be less alert, take longer to react, have low blood sugar and decreased productivity.

Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix is a Healthy Meal on the Go

It’s a sad truth – and it also sounds like a paradox – but millions of people around the world are both overfed and undernourished. The fact is, malnutrition can exist even when calories are plentiful – it just requires too much food with too little nutritional value. The modern food supply is overloaded with highly processed, high calorie, appetizing foods that are lacking in vital nutrients. On top of that, most of us aren’t as physically active as we should be.

Herbalife’s #1 selling product, Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix, is a great product for people who want convenient, healthy nutrition.
