Staying well during winter with AlburyCBD
Perhaps now more than ever, it’s important to take care of ourselves and make health and wellbeing a priority. Our AlburyCBD businesses are here to help, even during winter where it can be more difficult to find the motivation to stay active and healthy.
Exercise is such an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not just for physical health, but mental and emotional wellbeing, too. Whether it’s yoga, pilates, weight lifting, boxing, or cardio, there’s a gym or fitness studio for everyone in AlburyCBD.
Being out in the cold doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll catch a cold, however, if your immune system is already weak or compromised being cold for a sustained period of time can make you more susceptible to getting sick.
Rugging up under a blanket on the couch or puffy jacket, beanie and gloves while watching weekend footy are great ways to keep warm. A trip to Zienart & Co*, hello darling* or Jack’s on Olive* can help you stay toasty warm.
Being warm isn’t just about blankets and jackets, especially when it comes to your home. Candles, lighting and soft furnishings can make any room feel warm and cosy – head to Milkshake Candle Company, Home Inspirations*, or Lighting Bonanza* to transform your home this winter.
Another way to keep your immune system strong during winter is to eat wholesome nutritious foods. Winter is definitely the time for hearty comfort foods with plenty of veggies, protein and whole grains – perfect for a balanced diet.
If you’re looking for salads with a punch, Greenstreat has launched their new winter menu and Get Tossed Salad Bar* also has a wide selection of fresh, homemade soups during the colder months. When you need something to take home, head to Border Just Foods* or Clancy’s Food Stores* for grocery items and take home meal options.
Advice when you need it
No matter how hard you try, it’s not always possible to avoid getting sick. If the cold or flu does take hold, it can be helpful knowing you’ve got somewhere to turn for advice for the right medicine and support. Whether it’s for yourself, your kids, or your extended family, the local chemist is a great first port of call. Award Amcal+ Pharmacy* on Dean St, Amcal Gardens Compounding Pharmacy*, and Blooms the Chemist* are just a few of the options in AlburyCBD – they are all AlburyCBD gift card businesses, too!
Once you’re feeling better, a trip to Salts of the Earth can help clear any lingering congestion and soothe sensitive sinuses. Salt therapy has been used around the world for hundreds of years and the team at Salts of the Earth are our local experts.
*These businesses are part of the AlburyCBD gift card program.
