3 Tips to Avoiding the Flu Bug

Eat Those Greens!
 Crossing my fingers, knocking on wood that I don't jinx myself by giving away my tips to avoiding the flu or catching the latest cold. I'll come clean... I haven't had a cold for 3 years! Really?! yes sirreee.

I follow these tips as soon as I start seeing people around me coughing, hacking or sneezing. That alarm goes in my head, time to go into the safe zone.

3 Tips to Avoiding the Flu or Cold Bug :

1.) Drink hot or warm water constantly during the day.
Our lymphatic system is the drains to our body. When these drains are clogged up the germs that we take in get stuck in our bodies. When germs are stuck in our bodies the body sends signals to fight these germs and that's when we start feeling sick. Keeping the body hydrated keeps the lymphatic system flowing smoothly and leaving your immune system in tact.

2.) At All Costs - Don't Touch Your Face!
Simple yet often forgotten by numerous people. It was found in a study that on average people touch their face up to 104 times in 3 hours. These germs can get into your system through your mouth, nose, and eyes. It's a quick route for those bugs.

3.) Eat Even Healthier!
During the flu season it's no time to decide to go off your healthy eating plan. It's time to bump it up instead. Keeping your immune system in working order is your main goal when trying to avoid the bug. Eating unhealthy and packaged food doesn't provide your body with proper nutrients. Try eating more vegetables, soups and lean protein so your body is ready to defend.

Good luck out there people!

Chemicals on Our Skin

Our skin is the largest organ of our body and the most ignored when it comes to health. We don't realize how many chemicals our skin comes into contact each day. Through our skin these chemicals can go into our blood stream and over time can cause possible side effects. It's alway a good idea to be aware of what chemicals you are eating, drinking or putting on your body.

Mind Body Green posted a great infograph from The Daily Mail that shows the 515 chemicals women put on their bodies everyday. Hmm I wonder if it's a good time to start thinking about switching to organic shampoos, make-up and lotions? I know it's a tough habit to break but it seems we all should take a look at slowly introducing organic beauty products into our daily beauty rituals.
