In just a few short weeks, winter will officially begin. But depending on where you live, the winter weather is already here and it may already be taking a toll on the healthy lifestyle you’ve worked hard for. Whether you typically eat too much comfort food and desserts, or exercise less (or not at all), winter can really hurt your health. This year, instead of sitting back and accepting the unhealthy changes in your life, make an early resolution to stay active, eat right, and in the process, help ward off seasonal depression. Sounds easy, right?

The best strategy to beat these negative habits is to be proactive, so start now by implementing some of the following ten tips to stay healthy this winter. There’s nothing better than reaching the end of the coldest season feeling and looking your best…

1. Make a Plan

People are easily knocked off their healthy routine because of how busy the start of the winter season is. With holiday celebrations beginning at the end of November and carrying you into the new year, it’s no wonder people ditch their regular routine—maintaining it can seem insurmountable.

However, don’t let busy weekends and winter break get in the way of being healthy. It may seem stressful, but map out the first month or two of the winter season. Add family and other social commitments, camps (if you have kids), and any big work deadlines. Doing this will allow you to see where you have free time to fit in exercise or plan an active outing.
