As temperatures drop and the cold months continue to outstay their welcome, it can be very easy to stay indoors and indulge in things that seem oh so good at the time but don’t have many benefits for our health. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with indulging occasionally (especially if it warms you up), it’s also really important at this time of year to make sure our immunity is in tip-top shape and that we’re looking after ourselves properly. There are plenty of ways to make sure your level of self-care is constantly peaking, and a number of great places in Kings Heath that will have you looking after your body like the deserved temple it is!
