4. Refuel as much sunlight as possible
Winter in Germany is usually cold and dark. Accordingly, we receive little sunlight. In the human body melatonin is released in darkness, making you tired and lethargic. But each of us knows the feeling of how the body revives with a little light. Even on dark days, it makes sense to go outside because there is a little more light there. However, in winter, the human body often can not produce enough vitamin D. Vitamin D production is initiated by sunlight. Therefore, you can help after consulting your doctor: Vitamin D supplements help to reach the daily dose of vitamin D. In addition, daylight lamps help you through the dark season: with as many lumens and high wattage as possible, the devices simulate daylight. This is a really worthwhile purchase for daily use in winter - we even have two of these devices to fight during the day against winter fatigue.

5. Vitamin-rich nutrition ensures a good mood
Of course, a varied and vitamin-rich diet throughout the year makes sense. But especially in winter, the body needs sufficient amounts of vitamins. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains and of course fish and nuts is suitable for this. Of course, after consultation with your doctor, you can also resort to dietary supplements. I use for example the food supplements of Life Plus (Werbelink - Click here!)who keep me fit in winter.
6. Doing sports outdoors: Walking in winter
Of course, winter sports are the nuts and bolts. As in all other seasons, athletes usually live healthier lives. If you can set it up and get you, you should Doing sports outdoors in winter, You should therefore move so hard at least five days a week that you start to sweat. For example, a small jogging round through the park is suitable for this purpose. After such a tour in winter you will feel refreshed and alive. Again, in case of doubt, please consult with a doctor in advance, so you do not take over the sport.
7. Fitness, wellness and massages
Who as we are not so keen on, in the winter outside to jog around the area and freezing to death is well served by a good gym. In the large wellness temples you can do indoor fitness, on treadmill or crosstrainer to spin your laps and then go to the sauna, splash in the pool or enjoy a massage wellness. Attention addictive factor is included! In all major metropolitan areas in Germany, there are facilities where you can enjoy these spa services. The largest providers in Germany include Holmes Place, Meridian Spa and Aspria. In addition, there are many smaller providers, which of course can offer a similar high quality. Anyone who has chosen a good wellness temple, enjoys a holiday in everyday life and can in between times really take a break from everyday life. This not only helps against the winter blues, but also against everyday stress.
8. Do not overdo it with heating
Yes, it is tempting to turn up the heating so that it gets really cozy and warm inside in winter. This not only drives up the heating costs, but is also not healthy for the nasal mucous membranes. The dry heating air irritates the paranasal sinuses and ensures that the defenses are weakened. Therefore, it makes sense not to overdo it with heating and also to ventilate regularly to let fresh air into the apartment.
