Healthy Tips I swear by...

Its that dreaded time of year again....


Cough, Cough, Sneeze!! YUCK!!!!

I swear it hits earlier and earlier each year!! I'm fully prepared though. 

I thought I would re post some healthy tips I swear by....

1. Frequent hand-washing, when you can't wash Purell!!

2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face. If I have a itch I will use the inside of my shirt to itch it or a tissue.

3. Gargle with warm salt water.... I always gargle at the end of every night. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. Don't underestimate this simple, yet inexpensive but powerful preventative method.

4. A daily sinus rinse... Again I always do mine before I start my nightly treatments. I use a packet per nostril! Similar to 3 above, salt water is very effective In bringing down viral population.

5. Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vit C and D or take a vit C and D supplement. I take so many vitamins I think its very important to keep up on all your vitamin levels so you can stay healthy.

6. Drink as much warm liquids as you can. This is a pretty easy step I love my coffee!!! Some yummy examples and some of my favs are coffee, hot choc, tea, or a hot chai. You can even put some emergen C in hot water. Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive.

Another thing if you're sick refrain from hugging or shaking peoples hands the worst is when you hug someone and then they are hacking up a lung a second later and telling you how sick they are... Um thanks for the hug!! 

ELBOWS people its ALL about the BOWS!!!!!

Stay Healthy out there!!! If you're sick please be selfish!! Yes I said be selfish... Please don't share your germs, keep them to yourself!! 

Breathe out Love! Xo❤
