When it is freezing outside and you are stuck at home, it is natural to crave something that can warm you up and make you feel a little better. Wine is one such drink that can help you get through winters. Here are a few reasons why.
It Is Good For Your Mental Health
When the sun hasn't shined since the last few days, and you have not been able to go out and socialize, it can affect your mental health and leave you feeling depressed. That's what we call winter blues. When there’s not much that you can do to distract your mind and feel better, a glass of wine can help. Many studies link wine consumption to reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
It is Good For Your Muscles
Do you ever wonder why it is more difficult to engage in physical activity when it's cold? Should it not be easier to work out during cold weather? Doctors explain that our muscles lose more heat and contract when exposed to cold temperatures. This can cause tightness throughout the body and make it difficult to work out or even walk. When that happens, a sip of red wine can help you feel better and warm your muscles up.
It Saves You From Catching Flu and Colds
We see every other person having a runny nose or coughing when it is cold. Do you know why? Researchers explain that we are more vulnerable to diseases when cold because some microorganisms, such as flu viruses, thrive better in low temperatures. In addition to that, there is also evidence that exposure to cold temperatures can suppress our immunity. Indulging in a glass of wine every night during winter can boost our immunity and save ourselves from catching any virus. What can be a more fun and tasty way to improve your health?
