While we all look forward to the approaching winter, little do we know what winter brings us. Fatigue or tiredness and that would mean looking less energetic and drained out.

 

As the days get shorter, we know how difficult it can be to feel energized. Right form the time we crack open the curtains and squint at the clock only to find it still dark.

 

Loosing out on sunlight during winter is the main cause of tiredness and that will definitely wither your outlook. Research says that our bodies produce more of the hormone melatonin during winters that leads to feelings of fatigue and sluggishness.

 

So here are a few simple changes you need to look good, feel good and and be your best.

 

 

 

 

Get some sunlight, which is the highest source of Vitamin D that’s keep us us energized all day and is known for improving performance. There are other sources though, but getting out is your best chance at feeling great.

 

 

 

 

Besides vitamin D, regular exercise is a surefire way to boost energy levels. When you’re running on low energy, a healthy dose of morning exercise can release a welcome burst of feel good endorphins.

 

While it might be tempting to hibernate during winters, try to get into some healthy bedtime habits by keeping the sleeping cycle the same. Diet plays a very important role to boost your energies during winters too. While it often feels easier to eat fruits and vegetables during the summer months, winter is when your body really craves their nutrients.

 

And last but more importantly keep your wardrobe more colourful to boost the sunlight look.

    We just can’t wake up in the mornings during this season. Is it the cosy weather or the drained out feeling winter brings? Loved the insight tis article brings.

    It’s surprising how we confuse winter fatigue for the laid back lifestyle during winters. Thanks for the insight!

    I perfectly agree that creams and moisturizers alone can’t take off the tired looks. Diet, exercise and hey, lots of sunlight and Vita D too.

    Winters are all about spending cool nights out..be it BBQs or cozying around a friends place. But how true and how important it is is to get some sunlight in your life during the cool times.

    I always felt lazy and tired during winters… and would often reach out for coffee to say warm and pick me up. But this though-provoking article reminds me to eat and drink healthy as opposed to just keeping oneself warm.

    Never heard of something called ‘Winter tiredness’, as we all like to sleep a little longer during winters and yes, feel lazy during the day too. But like it’s rightly pointed out, we need to pull our socks to stave off this sluggish feeling.

    Loved to know a few facts about winter fatigue as we all take our lifestyles for granted. Liked the simple facts and how conveniently we ignore it.

    Didn’t see this side of winter. It was really helpful to know that tiredness can be mistaken for cosiness during winters.
