4 Tips and tricks to stay Healthy this Autumn – Lush Sophie

Oct 3, 2018 | Self Care

Autumn is right around the corner and we all know what that means… sickness, colds and soggy weather. So in this blog post, I will be going through 5 tips and tricks to stay healthy and warm this Autumn time.

1) Eat your 5 a day!
Your immune system will thank you for eating your 5 a day. You will feel much healthier and not to mention your skin, hair and nails will become much stronger and softer! If you’re busy then vitamins can also help too. If you want to make sure your insides are healthy this time of year, definitely eat your 5 a day!

2) Stay clean.
Germs will thrive on dirty skin, so this is a simple step. Stay clean! Wash your hands, under your nails, make sure you sneeze into a tissue and also make sure your oral hygiene is up to par too. Brush your teeth, floss and use mouthwash.

3)Wrap up warm.
Chest infections will occur if you don’t wear the right gear, so make sure to wrap up warm. Wear a decent coat and a scarf to cover your chest from the cold. you can also wear thick socks and thermals if you feel the cold a lot. Another trick is to carry a hot water bottle under your coat to stay insulated.

4)Get enough sleep
Without enough sleep your body will suffer. Your memeory , concentration and mood will all be affected by not enough sleep. Try to aim to get 8-10 hours a night to ensure you feel refreshed in the morning. To add to this, try and have a healthy breakfast such as Branflakes or even just fruit and yoghurt.
