Ahhh, October is upon us!
Typically by this time of year people have gotten refocused – have you? Moms and Dads get super busy making sure the kids settle into their new class or school, they start to think about what they want to get done before the Holidays and they put a big effort into their jobs and/or businesses.
All these activities are great, however in the meantime kids are in their classrooms with lots of their friends, breathing the same air, using the same “tools”, sharing the same resources. With that comes its own set of problems, germs spread, bacteria grows and before long your precious child comes home sneezing and coughing, having caught a cold or the flu from one of their classmates.
If your immune system is not in peak condition, it’s only a matter of time before you fall victim to that same cold or flu … and then you swing into reactionary mode to recoup as quickly as possible.
Let’s do everything we can to help prevent you and your family from going through that this year. While there is no guarantees when it comes to avoiding common colds and flus, here are four simple, effective, and of course, natural steps you can take at home to build up your immune system now, before the sneezing starts!
Along with those tips, let’s not forget about all the routine health tips such as, get plenty of sleep, drink water to stay hydrated, limit alcohol intake, exercise frequently … you know the routine.
It may not sound all that exciting, but when your co-workers are sneezing around you, you will appreciate that you took these preventative measures!
