Health Habits in the Winter
with Rich Milostan Astrologer
November through March are considered to be the peak months for neglecting sound health habits. It is during this period, that the health plan should be followed to help you fell your best for the summer months. The following are a few habits you may need to modify. Concerning your sleeping habits, if you sleep too little, it could run you down and increase your chances for the flu. Also, lack of rest doesn’t allow your body sufficient time to rejuvenate its energy. Too much sleep, on the other hand, acts like insufficient energy; 7 hours is a good norm. Poor nutritional habits like a diet high in animal habits, leads to cholesterol levels that can turn high. So avoid these if possible. During the winter months, you may exercise less often, but it is important to exercise 2 or 3 times a week. Slacking in exercise can affect your digestive system and lead to weight gain; a well-balanced meal is a better substitute. Drinking in excess can deplete your energy level. And smoking definitely increases chances of ill health, as well as those around you.
These most common evils will seem harder to break, but by working a goal to avoid them from November through March you will develop a trigger habit, so when the next year comes you’ll “automatically” desire to avoid these nuisances.
