The weather might be chilly and dry, but if you know the right ingredients, winter can be a happier and better time for you. Cozy beds, warm drinks, and your favorite show on Netflix; what else could one ask for?

And the best thing to make your winter better is to add a drink that’ll help boost your emotions. So give these a try!

Quick Tip

If you want to add something to your drinks and food that keeps your skin looking younger, repairs your body (after working out), AND gives you energy throughout the day, then I would seriously recommend collagen protein powder which you can check out here.

ALSO, this brand is specifically great since it’s flavorless (which is awesome since I hate adding things that make my favorite drinks and food taste horrible). So I would definitely check it out here and see how you feel and look after using it for a little while.

Hot chocolate

If you’re not on a diet plan, then hot chocolate might be the drink for you. Now because dark chocolate stimulates the production of endorphins, you might want to mix some dark chocolate with hot milk. It makes for a tasty and comforting drink. Just add as much as you want to your milk!

Hot spiced apple cider

Spiced Apple Cider is a great source of nutrients and great flavors. You can add maple syrup, cinnamon, citrus, cardamom, or cloves for some flavor. Now it may not have specific health properties that boost your mood, but it is a great alternative to coffee or tea, and the flavor does make you feel happier.

Fresh mint tea

There really is nothing better than a cup of hot fresh mint tea sometimes. This drink helps in reducing stress which can be great if this is something you’re experiencing a lot of lately.


Winter or summer, it never disappoints. Chai is the ideal drink to get rid of the sadness you might experience during winter. Again, it doesn’t have specific health properties for boosting your mood, but the flavor is comforting and will help you feel better. Also, it’s a great drink for boosting your metabolism.


You can lose weight and warm yourself without torturing your taste buds. It’s a stress buster that improves your digestion. Also, you can treat your skin dryness with this remedy as well.


Certain properties in tea help promote relaxation. So if you’re stressed out and need to wind down, then definitely grab a hot cup of tea and sit down to watch your favorite show.

Try these drinks with your friends and family, it’s always great to share in something that will help everyone. Also, let us know what you think of them!
