If you are feeling under the weather with the chillier temperatures, it can be important to stay on top of a proactive wellness plan that can help to keep illness at bay. Discover tips for staying happy and healthy that can be carried on throughout the year even as the seasons change.

Start with Sleep

Keeping your body well rested through a good night’s sleep can be crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Daylights Savings can alter your sleep schedule and you may want to hit the snooze button a few more times in the morning. However, keeping a consistent sleep schedule can be just as important as making sure you get all your needed ZZZs.

Update your bedding with comfortable options from Comfort Bay®. Swap out older pillows with a twin pack of pillows available in standard and memory foam. Discover new sheet sets ranging from twin to queen in various colors like grey, tan, brown, blue and many more! For cozy options, consider plush blankets starting as low as $5 for added decoration and warmth.

Supplement with Vitamins

Vitamins can play a role in a good night’s rest and other health goals. Talk to your doctor whether supplementing with vitamins would be beneficial to your daily routine. Find over-the-counter vitamins and minerals to improve winter wellness with brands like DG Health®, Rexall®, One A Day®, Centrum® and many more by visiting your local Dollar General or online.

Find inexpensive, yet quality options at Dollar General like this Rubbermaid® blue 24 oz. water bottle available for $5.

For a warmer options, consider herbal teas that are low in sugar and may provide additional benefits, like soothing chamomile

Move it

While rest and relaxation are also essential to health, it is important to implement movement into your schedule and routine as well.
