Smart Ways To Stay Healthy During Cold Season
Cold season is just getting going. Trust there’s a patient zero in your office or kids class room right now. I somehow have made it through my boyfriend having strep, the flu and then a cold (knocking wood!) Found some great tips to protect you...
Make some homemade juice - Store-bought juice is packed with sugar, which isn’t great for your immune system, so buy the fruit and make a healthier version yourself. Orange and grapefruit are excellent for vitamin C and toss in some beets and carrots to reduce inflammation, too.
Create “sick zones” in your home - Keep the coughers and sneezers in one area to decrease the chance of spreading germs and hopefully keep you healthy.
Teach kids to sneeze into their arms - Set an early bedtime -
Hang eucalyptus in your shower - Buy a bundle of fresh eucalyptus and tie it to your showerhead. The steam from your shower will work with the plant’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to create a stress-relieving, spa-like atmosphere that fights germs, too.
