What the A to Z of winter wellness is all about

When the chill factor drops our focus on good health often drifts. Not only are we more susceptible to nasty winter lurgies, but the temptation to hibernate can mean less moving and not as much focus on the right food for optimal health. In a bid to stay focused (or re-focus) this winter, we've called on the smarts of holistic health expert, Dr Libby Weaver to help compile our interactive A to Z of Winter Wellness. Each weekday we will reveal the next letter and what it stands for in our health file, plus informative graphics and recipe suggestions to help boost your health. Check in to Life & Style every afternoon for your winter wellness inspiration.

X | is for X Factor by Dr Libby Weaver

What is your X-factor? What is the sentiment you bring to situations? Is it playfulness? Wisdom? Humour? Imagination? Creativity? Gratitude? Wonder? Hope? Love? Use the cooler months to do some inquiring into your mind and your heart, examining your perceptions of yourself. Explore what you bring to the lives of others. You may need to ask them for input to help you get started. Then grab a piece of paper, a notebook or journal and capture your X Factor. This is just one of the many gifts within you that makes an enormous difference to the lives of others.
