5 Reasons Warm Weather is Good For Your Health

 

Are you a snow-lover, or a beach-bum?

There’s lots of reasons you may prefer warmer weather over the cold. But one thing you may not have thought about is how the weather where you live affects your body.

As it turns out, climate and temperature can have a big impact on your health.

And while you may have your own preferences, the facts are clear: there’s lots of health benefits to living in warm weather.

So pack up your parka, step outside, and let the sunshine in.

5 Benefits of Living in Warm Weather

1. Get More Sunlight

Sunlight exposure increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D can prevent cancer, provide higher energy levels, and keep your bones strong and healthy.

And even though Vitamin D is so important for your health, researchers at Central Washington University claim that 77% of people are  vitamin D deficient because they don’t get enough sunlight.

If you’re locked up most of the year indoors because of cold temperature, ice and snow, it may be time to consider a move somewhere with more sunshine. Just remember to get a moderate amount, because getting too much sunlight can be harmful as well.

2. Be Physical

Let’s face it – you’re probably more motivated to exercise, or just get up and go, when it’s nice outside. The couch and TV just look a little less appealing when the sun is shining through on a clear day. And research backs this up.

One research study showed that teenagers are more active in the summertime and less active in winter. In a region with warm weather year-round, exercise and physical activity become the norm.

3. Improve Your Memory

Research shows that your overall alertness & mental performance is at its best when your body temperature is high. Staying warm in nice weather helps keep you alert and improves your memory.

And sure, you can keep your body temperature up regardless of the temperature outside, but it’s a lot easier when you don’t have to wear 7 layers just to stay warm.

4. Warm Weather is Safer

Studies have shown that death rates are higher in cold climates. People who have easy access to heat & good housing may not be as affected, but for those who are struggling, the winter & cold weather could be a killer.

5. It’s Better for Your Heart & Lungs.

Cold weather can have a negative impact on your health, especially your heart and respiratory system. When your body works to regulate heat, your blood pressure can increase to unhealthy levels, causing long-term damage.

The Takeaway

There’s more to living in a warm area than just getting the benefit of a healthy tan. Warmth and sunlight can offer real benefit to your health. From improved heart and lung health, to enhanced mental performance, living in a warm climate may give you just the health boost you need.

Facts About Christmas Songs, Books, and Movies You Didn’t Know

“Jingle Bells,” originally called “One Horse Open Sleigh,” was composed in Massachusetts by James Pierpont as a Thanksgiving song and was the first song sung on December 15, 1965 by astronauts Tom Stafford and Wally Schirra while they were in space.

All of the items in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” total 354 gifts.

Brenda Lee was only thirteen years old when she recorded “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” in 1958.

Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol was written in six weeks. On the internet, IMDB lists 202 various A Christmas Carol film adaptations, including films with non-traditional stories.

In Dublin in 1742 the Christmas oratorio, The Messiah, by George Frederick Handle was first performed.

Paul McCartney’s “A Wonderful Christmas Time” is in the animated “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.”

Stanley Weintraub wrote about a famous Christmas truce in 1914 during World War I when the Germans and British exchanged gifts and played football in his book Silent Night: The Story of the World War I Christmas Truce.

The song “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” originally was sung by servants to demand alcoholic drinks from their masters. “We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here.”

Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” is the best-selling Christmas song with more than more than 50 million copies sold around the world.

Chocolate Caliente: Authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate

Authentic Mexican chocolate caliente is comforting, as hot chocolate should be, but it is also unexpectedly refreshing. The main ingredient is less intense than the darker chocolate often used in other versions of this beverage, and the cinnamon is nothing short of stimulating.

In Mexico, hot chocolate is most often prepared with tablets of rustic chocolate de mesa, “table chocolate,” which can be easily found in the U.S. at Mexican grocery store and even large supermarkets. The two most common brands are Ibarra (made by a company in Jalisco, Mexico) and Abuelita (a Nestle product). These tablets contain cacao paste, of course, but also sugar and cinnamon.

People in Mexico often partake of this comforting drink for breakfast or a late supper any day of the week, as well as at Christmas time (such as the Posada celebrations) and for special occasions such as Day of the Dead. It is often served with delicious sweet bread or basic white bread (such as bolillos), which is dunked into the hot liquid.

Ingredients

  • 2 (3-ounce) tablets Mexican table chocolate
  • 4 cups milk

 

Steps to Make It

The tablets of chocolate de mesa are usually divided into 6 to 8 wedges. Place each tablet on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife to divide the piece into the wedges. Don’t worry if they don’t cut perfectly—you are going to be dissolving the chocolate.

Place the milk in a saucepan over medium heat.

Once the first tiny bubbles begin to appear in the milk, add the wedges of chocolate and continue heating, stirring slowly but constantly, until the chocolate has melted. Do not let the milk boil; if it looks as if it is going to start boiling, take the pan off the heat for a few minutes, continue to stir, then turn the burner down somewhat and return the pan to the heat.

Drink your hot chocolate as is, or place in a blender, half of the amount at a time, and carefully blend the mixture until the desired degree of frothiness has been reached.

Pour your hot chocolate into rustic clay mugs for serving.

 

Tips to Serve it even better…

Please note that regardless of how well your milk and chocolate are blended, some solids will settle inside the cup as the beverage is enjoyed; this has to do with the nature of the ingredients, and it is normal. For this reason, it’s a good idea to provide either a stick of cinnamon or a teaspoon with each portion so that each drinker can stir the beverage as they enjoy.

In Mexico, a good mug of hot chocolate has some delicious espuma, or froth, on the top. Traditionally, this is created with a molinillo. These are often very beautifully made and are as decorative as they are useful. The molinillo is inserted into the hot chocolate, either while the liquid is still in the pan or after it has already been poured into a cup. The cook then takes the handle of the utensil between her palms and makes the molinillo spin quickly back and forth in the liquid until the desired amount of froth is produced. It can take several minutes to create a lot of froth; patience and persistence are key.

If you don’t have an official molinillo, try the same technique with a wire whisk, or use a portable electric mixer or an immersion blender. If you prefer an authentic method even older than the molinillo, try pouring the drink back and forth between two bowls or pitchers until the espuma forms.

Though Abuelita and Ibarra are the ubiquitous commercial brands of chocolate de mesa, they are far from the only ones in existence. If you have access to other brands and/or artisanal chocolate products, by all means, take advantage of them. Try different kinds of chocolate for different occasions, or settle on just one favorite. Feeling adventurous? You might even want to make your own blend of chocolate, sugar, and cinnamon.
