For those that already have a long-term condition, winter can be made worse. It doesn’t have to bring you down – all you need to do if this is you is be a bit more careful and you can enjoy these seasonal months.
Here are 3 main things you can do to help winter be easier
- Make sure you eat regularly and have hot drinks such as coffee, tea or lemon and honey in hot water. Its also great to bake and cook your own hot main meal of the day such as soup, casserole or cake
- Keep your home warm at about 18 degrees especially your bedroom for when you are asleep at night time
- Also check in on your neighbours and friends – if you cannot walk or drive then do catch up regularly via a phone call – conversation is great and also they will know you are ok and well
