During the winter season, 63 percent of women look for ways to support their immune system. So now is a good time to remember these everyday tips for promoting good health. Take a moment today to show your body a little TLC in five simple ways!

  1. Take good care of your gut.

Did you know up to 70 percent of your natural immune defenses live in your digestive tract? That’s where friendly bacteria called probiotics work to maintain a healthy, balanced environment. To support digestive and immune health throughout the year, many experts recommend taking a daily probiotic supplement. Look for a once-daily probiotic with at least 15 billion cultures per capsule, like Renew Life Ultimate Flora Everyday Probiotic 15 Billion or Renew Life Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic 30 Billion. A higher culture count and multiple strains of Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria provide support for your entire digestive tract, and delayed-release capsules help to ensure more friendly probiotics reach your gut.*

  1. Wash your hands often.

Have you ever thought about how many times you touch your mouth and eyes throughout the day? News flash: germs love it when you do, because it gives them an easy way in. Frequently washing your hands in warm, soapy water helps prevent the spread of germs to support good health. Many of us know this, but it is especially important to teach little ones this tried-and-true tactic. Remember to lather up and scrub for at least 20 seconds, then rinse and dry with a clean towel.

  1. Take a natural approach.

Have you ever heard the expression “Eat a rainbow?” It refers to the wide range of colors we see in our favorite fruits and vegetables, and what those colors mean for our health (here’s a quick list). Each shade of red, orange, yellow, green, and even purple and blue comes from different nutrients that support a healthy immune system and overall well-being. Cutting up fruits and veggies ahead of time makes it easy to create nutritious smoothies, soups, and meals throughout the week — plus it’s great for quick and healthy snacking!

  1. Embrace a stress-relieving activity.

One in five (21 percent) women are unaware that stress can upset the bacterial equilibrium in the gut, which can make it difficult to feel your best. Whether you enjoy yoga, tai chi, massage, deep breathing, listening to music, or another activity that eases stress, find time to do it regularly. Feeling creative? Studies show coloring is a great stress reliever.

  1. Lift your mood with a little sunlight.

During the winter months, many of us spend less time outdoors because of the cooler weather — but that means less exposure to sunlight, which is one of the main ways our bodies produce vitamin D. Because vitamin D has been linked to a positive mood, try to spend time outside or near a window each day. Better yet, take a walk! Research shows simply walking outdoors can boost your spirits and leave you feeling refreshed.
