5 Ways Kombucha can help you during the winter !
We all know that Winter can be a hard time for our human bodies to go through.. Coughs, Colds and other little things that the body can produce.
However it doesn’t have to be that hard… Taking on some simple precautions can not only get us through the colder months , but it can even allow us to enjoy and flourish through the middle of the year. We at Kombucha By Laurent love to look on the brighter side and turn challenges into positive experiences! Here are five ways to celebrate Winter, by having Kombucha by your side.
To ensure you stay healthy everyday !
- Move More, Differently
It might sound counterintuitive, but Winter is actually the perfect opportunity to get more movement into your lifestyle. Now is the time to take up yoga, stretching or an indoor-exercise routine. The reality is, it’s only natural that we want to go outdoors less and less during the colder months, however contrary to stereotypes, it’s actually an opportunity to move more, rather than less. After or before exercise drink one kombucha! A lot of people see Summer as the time to get outdoors and exercise, but inevitably instead use that great weather to get out and socialise. Instead, whilst everyone else is hibernating, take the golden opportunity to take up yoga or another indoor routine. Watch those instructional videos on your living room big screen and get moving. Your Summer bod will thank you.
- Maintain Your Gut Health
We know that the cold months are the time we are at our most prone to picking up colds, the flu and all manner of “lurgies.” To battle them, the best thing you can do is to keep your defences up. Specifically, boosting your gut health through a regular intake of Kombucha is just the tonic!
- Watch Your Portion Sizes
It’s so tempting to go for big, stodgy food as you’re curled up at home – or possibly over your work lunch break – when it’s cold outside. So often we opt for huge servings of warm carbohydrates and other “comfort foods” to combat the uncomfortable cold. Make sure you drink your daily kombucha! Foods such as potatoes, pasta and rice are of course great in small, measured portions, as part of a balanced diet. The trick is to not go over the top with them in Winter. Instead, look to control your portion sizes and fill the gaps with nice warm vegetables – a fantastic source of vitamins and antioxidants to pair with your Kombucha gut-health boost!
- Take Time To Meditate
We talk about athletic and physical health a great deal. However mental and spiritual health is equally important for a completely balanced and healthy whole. One of the best ways to preserve our health when our bodies are under physical stress is to maintain a strong mind. Regular meditation is one such way to build mental resilience and clear our minds of negative thoughts. Many report amazing flow-on benefits to their physical health as a result. After or before every meditation, drink Kombucha !
- Add Some Layers of clothes 🙂
It might seem incredibly obvious, but one tactic in Winter that is lost is the art of adding layers of clothing. We live in a country with a moderate to cold climate. Adding additional layers of clothing keeps our natural body warmth in, aiding in maintaining our health. An added important benefit of rugging up is reduction of the need for artificial heating via air conditioners and heaters – a great way to save money and the environment.
Our Ginger Kombucha is great for the winter months 😉
