Swallow extra vitamin supplements

Many people experience a dip in the autumn and winter due to a vitamin deficiency. In particular, a deficiency of vitamin D. Although vitamin D is also processed in certain foods, the body mainly makes it itself through sunlight. Unfortunately, the sun in the Netherlands is too low during the autumn and winter. As a result, you will not make enough vitamin D even on a sunny day. In addition, it is more often cloudy than sunny on these days. This, in combination with going outside less, is disastrous for your vitamin D level. With all its consequences. That is why it is good to take extra vitamin supplements in addition to a healthy diet. This is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, but can contribute to a better vitamin content.

Go out with friends

In winter it is very tempting to linger on the couch on days off. Not a hair on your head that thinks about leaving home at that moment. Unfortunately, this also makes you feel less comfortable. Your body is not made for lazing around all day. You also notice this when you really do nothing for a whole weekend. You often feel more tired than when you've had a busy day. So go out and enjoy it. This way you feel better in your own skin!
