With shorter days, less sun, and less reasons to get outside, staying healthy in the winter months can be a challenge. I have hand picked my favorite winter wellness supplements, along with a few tips to keep you and your family healthy and happy through the winter months.
1. Get plenty of sleep - Studies show that sleep is when the body heals and repairs itself, including on a cellular level. This makes getting quality sleep imperative for improving cellular health and your energy levels.
2. Quality Nutrition - Increasing your intake of natural whole foods, while decreasing your intake of inflammatory foods is important for maintaining your overall health.

Stay active - Staying active in the winter time can be a real challenge, but if you don't stay active your immune system will be more prone to stress. Try at home exercises like yoga or Tai Chi, or even find a buddy to hit the gym with!
