Share Article

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the national ensemble predicts that there will be somewhere between 260,000 and 282,000 deaths reported in the United States by December 5th,2020 from COVID-19.

With such a bleak winter ahead of us, it can be difficult to look and feel your best. The good news? There are lots of ways to remain happy and feeling your best this winter. Check out the following suggestions for looking and feeling as good as possible this winter:

Consider getting Invisalign.

According to an article in Harvard Health Publishing, as many as one in five patients receiving orthodontic treatment is over the age of 18. Not only do teeth that are crowded or crooked, or teeth that overlap cause someone to find their appearance displeasing, but since teeth with these issues are more difficult to properly floss and brush these issues can lead to further dental issues. Teeth that cannot be thoroughly cleaned make you more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Plus, teeth not in the proper position can lead to dental issues such as a lisp, trouble chewing and swallowing, or stress on the facial structure leading to discomfort (such as jaw pain or sore gums).

Luckily, in recent years, Invisalign has made strides in overbite correction so that you can fix your overbite issues without resorting to traditional metal braces (let’s be honest — it’s not a great look for anybody, especially adults). By getting Invisalign for overbites you can get a set of clear aligners to fix nearly any bite issues. Including a slight overbite, a crossbite, an open bite, a deep bite, and varying degrees of underbite (maybe even severe overbite). Unlike traditional metal braces, getting Invisalign from a trained orthodontist allows a better aesthetic look, and Invisalign is far easier for maintaining good dental hygiene.

Keep in mind that, depending on the severity of your overbite, you may require additional appliances such as elastics (similar to the rubber bands with traditional braces) attached to small metal brackets placed towards the back of your mouth or a “motion” appliance to pull the teeth in the right direction. There are many pros to Invisalign treatment such as no wires, fewer cavities from easier cleaning, clear aligners, and less heavy metals scraping up your cheeks and the roof of your mouth leading to far less soreness. Plus, since you take your Invisalign aligners out when you eat, your diet won’t be restricted like it would with normal braces. Schedule a free consultation online and see what your treatment options are.

Get some warm and cozy ponchos.

Whether you’re looking for a new elegant outfit or a soft and cozy sweater to wear around the house during the holidays, Chico’s has got a poncho perfect to fit any aesthetics for any occasion. Sure, a lot of how we look is rooted in genetics; but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up any plain outfit with a stylish poncho, wrap, or a poncho-style ruana (a ruana is like a poncho, but has a slit in the front for better temperature control). With Chico’s selection of ponchos and wraps, you’re sure to find a poncho to either accentuate or downplay any jawline.

Chino’s has a wide selection of clothing perfect for any occasion. If you spend $100.00 or more on ponchos, other clothes, and accessories; you will receive free shipping (or if you’re a ShopRunner member you only need to spend $50.00 or more).

Explore the possibilities of CBD products.

With the economic impacts of COVID-19, it’s likely that supplementing your income could come in handy. By purchasing wholesale CBD you can get the highest quality hemp-derived CBD without having to do your own research because Planet Earth CBD has already done it for you. This is also the best way to ensure you’re always stocked up and ready to sell with easy online options. Planet Earth CBD has a wide selection of CBD products and hemp products coming in “world flavored” gummies, powders, and fast-acting capsules.

According to Planet Earth CBD’s website, their unique blend has more health benefits than CBD alone creating a “therapeutic” effect on the body. Plus, they use a third-party lab to test for purity, potency, and safety (you won’t find any harmful pesticides in this CBD product) and to remove the THC to a “federally compliant and undetectable level”. This means that the CBD is of the highest quality and won’t give you that “high” feeling you get with regular THC levels, while still giving you (and your customers) all the benefits of CBD.

According to HealthLine, CBD’s health benefits include pain relief (great for headaches, joint pain, and more), reducing anxiety and depression, possibly reducing skin issues such as acne, possibly provides benefits for neurological disorders, improving heart health, and maybe even preventing diabetes. Regardless of your ailment, organic CBD tinctures can be a natural alternative to addictive medications.

If you’re not interested in getting involved in the CBD industry by becoming a CBD wholesaler, Planet Earth CBD has individual bottles you can purchase for individual use as well. These products include edibles such as CBD gummies, CBD tinctures (CBD oil), CBD sports drinks, and CBD green superfood powder; CBD topicals for pain; and CBD in pill form. Planet Earth CBD only extracts the best CBD in full-spectrum and isolates their CBD products from their other products.

Disclaimer: These products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) so be sure that you and your customers are consulting a doctor before using CBD products.

Make time for wellness practices.

When it comes to staying healthy during a global pandemic, you need to make sure that your mind and your body are in the best shape to fight off viruses and infection. By following CDC guidelines for COVID-19 prevention (handwashing, wearing masks, social distancing, and avoiding all crowded spaces and social gatherings) you can do your best to prevent the virus.

At home, you can make sure you’re getting proper sleep, proper nutrition, and finding ways to relax to keep yourself healthy and looking your best. Relaxing the mind through meditation, reading a good book, or watching a movie virtually with a friend can all be great ways to relax during this difficult time. Finding creative ways to socialize through phone calls and video chats is going to help you feel less lonely during this difficult time as well.

Incorporate indoor and outdoor workouts.

According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise helps you control your weight, can prevent and/or control a plethora of diseases, improves cognitive function, decreases the chance of death from all causes, improves mood, boosts energy, promotes better sleep, and could even improve your sex life. In fact, exercise is so good for the body that it can be part of the treatment process for hypertension, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, type 2 diabetes, and other health conditions.

Something as simple as taking a walk outside can help you get past negative moods and improve your health. According to WebMD, being exposed to sunshine and nature improves immunity, decreases anxiety, improves focus, helps us sleep better by regulating our circadian rhythm, and boosts creativity. Making sure you’re soaking up some of that sun on the rare days it’s out in the winter is going to do wonders to improve how you look and feel.

However, keep in mind that, with the coronavirus still rampant in the U.S., it’s also important to make time for indoor workouts as well. Examples include workout videos, lifting weights, and practicing yoga, meditation, and/or general stretching to keep yourself healthy and improve your mood throughout the winter.
