Importance of Hand wash in this Winter

Importance of Hand wash in this Winter

Winter, the season when mist surrounds the atmosphere, when the tip of grass blades witness dew drops on them. You feel too cold outside right, what about the inside of your body?  

You feel hunger probably in the early morning itself in this season. This is because the digestive fire in your body is stronger in winter. Take care of your health by having nutritious diet and rest. Your body may become weak and less immune when you have more hunger and yet if you are taking less food.  

Be strong this winter! 

 Build strong immunity by modifying your daily routine. You can practice the best hygienic practices like repeated hand washing and having immunity promoting drinks like Chukku kappi . Taking Ayurvedic immunity boosters like Chyavan Prasham and Nellikkarishtam is also advisable for long term benefits.  

Ayurveda says, the winter is the combination of two seasons Hemantha (early winter) and Shishira (late winter). Late winter is drier in nature; try to take care of your body by moisturizing more in this part of the season. Ayurvedic winter regimen focusses on nourishing both inside and outside of the body.  

Basic winter care tips for you  

  • Make yourself hydrated this winter. Have at least 8 glasses of water a day.  
  • Apply Ayurvedic moisturizing day creams like Ojaswini marayoor sandalwood cream on your skin daily twice a day.  
  • Use warm water for drinking and bathing to reduce the effects of cold in the external atmosphere.  
  • Have food items like dairy products, fresh cereals and fruits which are sweet in taste. Reduce dryness inducing tastes like pungent, bitter, salt in diet.  
  • Use warm blankets at night to maintain your body heat effectively. 
  • Effective handwashing when regularly done helps your body be smooth and immune to microbes.
