It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, and it seems like everyone has the sniffles. Keeping yourself healthy by prioritizing your physical and mental well-being during the winter months is so important, and watermelon is a great way to treat yourself and treat your body right. So here are a few tips to help you have a happy healthy winter.
Get Your Vitamins
Making sure your body has the nutrients it needs is key to supporting your immune system during the winter (and all year round). Good thing watermelon has some of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to help it stay in tip-top shape. Just two cups of watermelon has vitamin A (8%), B6 (6%) and C (25%), potassium (6%), magnesium (6%), thiamin (8%) and phosphorus (2%).
You Need To Hydrate To Be Great!
Staying hydrated is an important part of helping your body stay healthy, but every now and again you might want to switch it up from drinking just water all the time. For the times you’re looking for a flavorful hydration boost, try our watermelon sports drink recipe. This simple mix is only three ingredients and has water, vitamins and electrolytes to help keep you hydrated and happy.
Make Some Me Time
When was the last time you took some time for yourself? While it would be awesome to jet off on a tropical getaway, sometimes 15 minutes of “me time” is what you need to clear your mind and reset your focus. Try listening to our Watermelon Escapes, from ASMR to guided meditation, these relaxing moments are there whenever you need them.
Don’t forget that being healthy also means being happy. Enjoying some of your favorite treats in moderation is a great way to take care of your mental health. Try adding watermelon to your grazing boards for a sweet and healthy snack.
