Winning Winter Tips

What comes to mind when you think of healthy foods?

Green tea, broccoli, bran flakes? of course. But hot cocoa?

According to CNN.com Health, the rich sweet goodness in a cup is right up there when it comes to a winning winter diet. That’s some welcome news! Looks like we’re doing things right after all. So drink up, but you might want to hold off on the marshmallows… At ActiveForever, we’re always thinking about your health and ours, so thought we’d bring you this informational little blurb to start your day off right.

While we’ve got you in a health-oriented state of mind, be sure to check out our luxurious skin care products in honor of National Healthy Skin Month. There’s nothing like showing the harsh winter weather who’s boss by pampering your largest and arguably most precious organ this time of year. Women especially need to take heed as they have a thinner, drier dermis than that of their male counterparts. Barrier creams reinforce the skin’s natural shield and prevent precious moisture from exiting the skin’s surface.

‘Tis the season, so all of our winter products are moving fast, especially where attire is concerned. Our collection of heated and insulated clothing is material proof that you really can be stylish and comfortable at the same time.

Also, be sure to pick up your copy of our Essential Gifts catalog while supplies last!

Give the gift of health this season!

So, grab some walnuts, but just a few, (they are rich in fat,) the good fat, but still… and shop healthy!

Knock that Cold out… Cold!

If you are anything at all like us here at ActiveForever, you are a mere mortal who is wont to fall prey to the common cold and flu from time to time.

It’s even more maddening when, to top it all off, you were a good little soldier and got your flu shot. Confound those blasted germs! (We’ll get you yet… *shakes fist*)

But until that day comes when we, as a species, finally overcome the cold and flu, ActiveForever would like to remind you that we are standing shoulder-to-shoulder here in the virus trenches with you and we’ll never leave. Well… we may have to turn our heads to cough or sneeze from time to time, but other than that we are here to help.

To that end, we thought we’d share a few of our cold and flu season survival kit, must-haves.

We’ll update this list frequently, but for today, we’d thought we’d start with one of our faves:

It’s the Slanket Blanket with Sleeves! These cold weather staples are a superior, long-lasting brand and they come in soo many pretty colors! We like the “Ruby Wine” one pictured below, but just in case you don’t, there’s Apricot, Texas Tea, Moss Green, Hunter Green, Castlerock, (a.k.a. grey) Princess Armor Pink (!) and more!

Enjoy! and Gesundheit!!
