People gain an average of five to seven pounds over the winter months, a fact blamed on everything from holiday sweets, drinks, and comfort foods to cold weather and Seasonal Affective Disorder. But if we start healthy daily practices now we can feel better and weather the winter months healthier, says veteran holistic physician Dr. Bradley Nelson.

A healthy diet, exercise, and mindfulness are keys to a healthier body, mind, and spirit, says Dr. Brad, author of the bestselling book “The Emotion Code.”
- Eat for Energy – “When our vibrations are low, we often turn to ‘comfort foods,’ but the irony is that most of these so-called foods of comfort, while perhaps initially pleasant to the palate, can have a net-negative effect on our emotional healing,” Dr. Brad says. “On the other hand, think of how great you feel when you do a cleanse or go a few days eating fresh, locally-sourced fruits, vegetables, and lean meats while drinking lots of water. When you adopt this way of eating and are mindful of what you put into your body, you are living in harmony with your highest self.” Dr. Brad shares his thoughts on what to eat, and what not to eat, for optimal health and energy.
- Move More, Eat Less – “Thirty minutes of moderate exercise each day will greatly improve your strength and stamina, and if partnered with mindful meditation it can keep your brain free from clutter. Just three 10-minute walks throughout the day can help keep you physically fit and emotionally strong.
- Embrace Gratitude – Most of us have found ourselves in a downward spiral of negativity. A nearly perfect lifeline to pull yourself out of the pity party and approach your higher self is gratitude: 99 percent of the time, you will find that your life is not as bad as you are currently viewing it. Dr. Brad explains how keeping a gratitude journal keeps negativity at bay.
- Let Go of the Past – “One of the most important steps on your way to becoming your highest self may be simply to let things go; in other words, practice acceptance,” Dr. Brad says. Some people and situations are never going to change, and if you continue to fight against that, you are just wasting energy on this resistance persistence.”
“When you change your mindset about things in the past, you can feel lighter and your vibrations may rise almost immediately. You do not necessarily have to forgive or forget – you just need to change your mindset about how you feel.”
