Staying healthy can be difficult at times, especially during the winters when you are surrounded by cozy blankets, holidays, hot chocolate, and the whole winter vibe. Many people find themselves enjoying cold weather indoors, in their beds, with movie marathons. Pandemic-related lockdowns further aggravated cozy-mode, with people staying indoors and under bed covers for long periods.

We care about your well-being, so we're providing the best ways to change up your routine and prepare for the summer.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
1. Get 8 Hours of Sleep
We know it sounds boring, but this absolutely essential for your health.
Everyone has a biological clock – basically your internal natural timing device that regulates your body's circadian rhythms. During the winter, many people mess up their sleeping schedules and do not get enough sleep. For an average adult, it is important to have at least 8 hours of shut-eye to ensure proper rest to fuel the upcoming day. If you are having a hard time falling asleep, try meditation or turning off your gadgets.
2. Get More Active
Though many people continue to train or exercise during the winters, there is this undying urge to lie on the couch. This is entirely normal since winter is a particularly lazy and snuggly season. Regardless, once spring comes around, you need to make sure you stay active throughout the day. This can help you get the all-mighty Vitamin D from Mr. Sun. And who knows, you might even get a chance to catch up with an old friend or just relish in the beauty of mother nature.
3. Alarms for Good Habits
If you can use alarms to help you wake up on time, then they can also help you set good habits. For instance, you set an alarm for your bedtime, dinnertime, or maybe even when it’s time to exercise. This will help you maintain your routine and remind you to continue your good habits.
4. Sunscreen to Fight the Sunbeams
Many people completely ignore sunscreen and its numerous benefits. With the sun out, it is necessary to use sunscreen to provide great protection against harmful rays, protect you from skin cancer, and reduce the signs of aging. You should always opt for sunscreen with the highest SPF, as it offers maximum protection for your skin.
