    @ DROPPING TEMPERATURE A fall in the temperature of even one-degree centigrade can lead to many health problems. As the body becomes cold in the winter season, the blood vessels constrict forcing the water out. This makes the blood thicker, which may develop clots and increase the risk of heart problems. People who have weaker lungs may develop emphysema, bronchitis and asthma. Lower back pain, knee pains and other joint pains develop specially for people having arthritis. The problem of frequent urination or urinary retention, fatigue, vertigo, anxiety, fear, high blood pressure and headaches are also usually seen. Dressing properly is very important to keep the body warm, by covering the neck and shoulder with the scarf especially for very young and old people will prevent them from catching a cold. The cold energy enters through the foot. It is important to wear socks which are right for the particular temperature. Encouraging manual workers this Christmas to wear socks and shoes will take a long way in improving the health of our world health. The amount of heat that you can lose through your head also depends on how thick your hair is. Older people with scanty hair must wear hat or woollen cap or muffler. Women usually feel colder than men. It’s a good idea to wear clothes in layers which allows adjusting the body temperature during night and day temperature or in different levels of activities. Washing the hands in winters is important as cold, cough, sneezing etc, transmits germs when we touch the eyes, nose and mouth. Taking shower with very hot water will open the pores of the skin which will let the warm energy out. Hence warm water is a better option. We have to live in harmony with the seasons. For this, we have to change our habits so that there is a balance between the body and environment. A mindful living will make life easy and happy. It would be a great idea to wake up as the sun rises, sit in the sun for some time if possible, and eat the fruits and vegetables which are grown in the winter season and also the food of your native land which is constitutionally good for you. These keep the immune system strong and keep away the diseases. Food can be cooked on slow fire with less water. Keeping healthy in winters will keep the youthfulness intact and prevent ageing. In winters especially reduce the quantity of salt. Drink sufficient water, avoid horror films if you have a tendency to catch a cold (fear is coldness energy) try to keep away from stressful situations. Do check what your child is watching, eating, wearing, sleeping and waking up time can be monitored too. In the winter month or in old age which is the winter of life, the bodies begin to dry. The hair and bones become brittle and the skin becomes rigid just like mind which also becomes inflexible dry and cold. Many times older people are fixed with their ideas, this is because of the coldness and dryness energy. If you want them to change this Christmas the younger children and young people must rub their heat and loving energy with their parents and grandparents. See the happiness in their lives and your own. All red fruits and root vegetables, cabbage ect., will bring heat and keep away the cold. So depending on your body type you can balance and maintain your body temperature. Citrus fruits, nuts, dry fruits, strawberries, black beans, kidney beans, walnuts, sesame seeds, red chillies, ginger tea, onions, turmeric and mustard oil, and most dark colour foods will nourish the body in the winter season. Drinking excess alcohol causes the blood vessels to widen due to which the body heat is lost faster. This festival do check your glasses. Animals hibernate in winters. For human beings also it is important to take more rest, sleep well, and reduce long working hours. A good time to meditate, look inwards and connect to our inner soul, relaxing the mind and calming the emotions. Ears are the organs which get affected in winters. Among the body parts, the bones get more affected. People who take non-vegetarian food can consume bone soup. Some people enjoy the winters, they have a deficiency of coldness energy in them. Such people can receive energy during the winter season. They can actually walk barefoot on the grass or the earth. On the other hand, there are people who do not feel healthy during winters, so they have to follow the above regimes thereby harmonizing their bodies. Fear is the main emotion of winters. Wisdom is the mental energy which is also associated with a cold. There is a thin line between fear and wisdom. Old age is the age of wisdom.
