    My top (and ever so simple) health tips for Winter are to 1) Take Immune Boosters, which I get from Solal and take every single day; and 2) Keep exercising, even when you just want to stay in bed or lie on the couch. It’s tough but worth the effort.

    Drink delicious hot homemade tea everyday: a handful of fresh peppermint leaves, slice of ginger, squeeze of lemon and a swirl of honey. Get out there, admire the winter sunshine breaking through the clouds. Laugh a lot. Sorted!

    I increase my vitamin c / immune boosters intake. Eating delicious home made soup is soothing, keeps you warms and ensures you are getting all the vitamins and nutrients from veggies. Its sometimes hard to keep your water intake high so i like to drink warm water if i am struggling to get cold water down…

    I do daily yoga asana practice with deep Ujjayi breathing to get prana flowing throughout my body and eliminate toxins. If I already have the sniffles, I do some Kapalabhati breathing (short, fast, forceful exhalations and passive inhalations through the nose) to clear out my sinuses

    1) Drink ginger tea and use fresh ginger in meals. 2) Lots of core asanas with kapalabhati!

    Take a winter walk the benefits are enormous, both mentally and physically. Being outdoors and getting some fresh air is good for your overall wellbeing – while staying indoors can make you feel demotivated.

    ‘If people are running on empty, they get sick,’ Meditation allows the body to heal itself and stay in balance, so that it can respond to illness appropriately. Meditation does two key things: firstly it helps relieve you from stress, which has been shown to improve immunity, and secondly it gives the body deep sleep, allowing it to re-energise.’

    My top winter tips are 1) cooking with coconut oil is not only much healthier than other oils but it keeps you fuller for longer and 2) a hot room you class solves any miserable winter day blues!

    A good night sleep is paramount for maintaining health in the winter months. If one struggles to sleep, rub a little sesame oil on your feet before going to bed. Wear cotton socks (so as not to damage your linen) and you will sleep soundly. Its an old Ayurvedic remedy.

    My second tip is ginger ‘tea’. Grated ginger, grated apple, fresh basil and really any other herb or ingredient you fancy. Have it first thing in the morning when you wake up – this is sure to keep your constitution happy and balanced.
