“In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.” Winter has arrived and according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, today is Dahan (“major cold”), the coldest day of the year. The temperature has gone down significantly.  Not only in outdoors, but the cold air is also invading our indoors without us noticing.  Today, we will bring you several tips to keep warm, so you can keep the cold out of the door.

 

  1. Warming Your Feet

Your feet are located at the farthest end from your heart, so the blood supply to there is the slowest and the least.  A pair of cold feet may trigger stomach and degrade your immunity, and may even affect your organs’ health if your feet are always cold.  Therefore, you should wear thick socks and warm shoes when going outdoors.  Before you sleep, place your feet in warm water and massage gently.  This method does not only help to keep the cold away from your body, it can also help you to relax and get extra rest.

 

  1. Increase Your Exercise Time

Doing exercises is a great way to keep warm and strengthen your immunity system.  While intense exercising may not be the best to do in winter, you can choose to jog, ride a bike, or do some exercises indoors–for example, fitness routines, bowling, etc.  If you are exercising outdoors, avoid staying in the wind for too long when you are sweating.

 

  1. Eating to Keep Warm

Proper eating habits can help us to fight the cold too.  Food with high calories are suitable for your winter appetite.  Frozen food like ice cream or iced drinks are not recommended as the melted ice will take your body heat away, making you feel even colder than you are already experiencing.  Food with high calcium and iron can help to build a strong heart and blood vessels, which will keep you warm as well as a result.

「歲暮陰陽催短景,天涯霜雪霽寒霄。」 冬天到啦,今天更是一年之中最寒冷的一天——「大寒」。天氣也因而冷了下少。不只在戶外,在室內待上一會也會覺得寒氣逼人。今天就帶給大家一些保暖小貼士,讓大家把寒冷拒之門外。

 

  1. 足部保暖

足部離心臟最遠,血液供應慢而少,最易受涼。足部受涼會引發腹痛,降低身體抵抗力,長期會影響內臟的健康。冬天出門應穿加厚的鞋襪,晚間睡前用熱水燙腳并加以按摩,能有效去除寒氣,而且有緩解疲勞的功能哦!

  1. 運動保暖

運動是保持身體溫暖的好方法,而且能增強身體抵抗力。冬季不宜做特別劇烈的運動,可以選擇慢跑,單車或是室內運動,如健身操,保齡球等等。需要注意的是,在戶外運動流汗應避免吹冷風。

  1. 飲食保暖

適當與合理的飲食也可以幫助我們禦寒。冬季可以適當吃些熱量高的食物;不宜吃冰冷的食物,如冰淇淋或是加冰塊的飲品,因為冰塊融化時會帶走人體的熱量,使我們體溫降低感到寒冷。多吃含鈣和鐵的食物可以幫助心臟和血管的工作,從而幫助禦寒。
