Here are my favorite tips for staying physically, sales mentally, no rx and emotionally healthy during the winter months. (Vacation not included!) These five simple suggestions are things anyone can do easily and inexpensively to stave off the winter blues and sniffles.

Raise your vitamin D levels naturally (without pills or sunlight). We’ve all heard about the marvels of vitamin D: heart health, skin health, immune health, mental health….But, you don’t need to supplement or risk skin cancer to get high vitamin D levels. The big secret is making healthy lifestyle changes. For example, if you lose just 5% or more of your body weight, your vitamin D blood levels will shoot up. Other ways to increase vitamin D naturally are to lower your cholesterol, exercise, and eat more fatty fish, such as wild salmon (farmed salmon contains only a quarter of the D that wild salmon contains, 250 IU per 3.5 ounces versus 1,000 IU).

We all can easily associate winter with the celebration of holidays. For some people, it is the memory of airports and other adventuresome traveling that comes to mind. For many business owners and other professionals, work obligations are as crucial and demanding as ever. Business, as usual, must go on.

Whether you are a business owner or business traveler, here are 10 survival tips that will help you be prepared for whatever winter might bring.

Winterizing your vehicle– If you live in the northern part of the country, you probably already know it’s important to get your vehicle winter-ready.

(RNN) – Tuesday, Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, ventured out of his burrow and didn’t see its shadow, which means he predicts an early spring.

Every year, the groundhog emerges from his burrow in Punxsutawney, PA, to determine whether the country will suffer through six more weeks of winter, or greet an early spring.

According to legend, the tempo of the seasons all relies on whether the rodent sees his shadow when he emerges from his burrow at Gobbler’s Knob, a natural amphitheater in the Pennsylvania wilds. This happens on or around the halfway point between the winter equinox and the spring solstice.

On a Saturday in mid-September, doctor LaDonna Brave Bull Allard ambles through the Sacred Stone Camp, price which she founded on her family’s land this spring to stop the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. The camp started small, but as media attention—and support—grew over the summer, it swelled by the end of August beyond its physical capacity into overflow camps. The population of the largest one, Oceti Sakowin, now numbers in the thousands.

Allard, who is the Standing Rock Sioux’s director of Tribal Tourism, a position that covers historic and cultural preservation, is both inspired and overwhelmed by this outpouring, but she’s careful not to let it distract her. Cold weather is rapidly approaching, and if the water protectors, as they call themselves, are going to make it through winter on the northern Plains, they need to prepare.

Care to break the hearts of Game of Thrones fans everywhere? It might just take seven words:

“THE WINDS OF WINTER is not finished.”

So wrote George R.R. Martin in a lengthy blog post published in the wee hours Saturday. The author had hoped to publish the sixth installment of his massively popular fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, early in 2016 — which meant finishing and submitting the manuscript to his publishers before the end of 2015.

But Martin says those hopes have been dashed.
