Winter mistakes to avoid this year


Remember, winter is only three months long so make sure everything you do doesn’t backfire.

Running back to your ex

Temperatures are decreasing and sleeping alone seems like the worst thing ever. Don’t fall for the trap because you might just regret it. Take a moment to think about all the reason you broke up in the first place – the heartache, tears, and stress; do you want all of that back? We don’t think so!

Eating junk

Waking up in the morning is getting tougher and queues for  amagwinya are getting longer. As comforting as winter treats may be, they’re not so forgiving on your waist and definitely won’t comfort you when you hop on that scale. When creating winter dishes, try to make them as wholesome as possible, the scale will thank you for it!  In addition, apps such as Yummly and Tasty will help you keep your meals exciting, and keep you on the right track.

Not exercising

Hitting that snooze button will not get you the body you’ve always wanted. Running is one of the best ways to stay warm in winter while keeping fit at the same time. Yes, it will be cold for the first few seconds after you step outside, but five minutes into it you’ll be breaking some serious sweat.

Skip the sunscreen

Even though the UV rays are lesser in winter, they can still cause wrinkles and premature ageing. The winter air is drying and damaging to the skin.  So, to make sure you still have radiant and healthy skin, don’t skip the sunscreen.
