Tips for Staying Healthy During the Holidays!

Stay healthy this holiday season!

Flu and cold season are here and with all of the traveling around the holidays how do we stay healthy? Well, let me tell you that nourishing our bodies and immune system is always the best way to keep away colds. Our immune system is built to fight away the sniffles. There are, however, ways to help your immune system.

1. SLEEP!

 Sleep is hands down one of the best ways to repair your body. That is literally why we sleep. When we sleep, your body can focus on important jobs like fighting off bacteria and viruses. Your cells are able to produce more proteins when you are asleep and, therefore, can improve your immune response. If you are worried about getting sick, make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.

2. Nourishing with Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential in your body. If you want to help your immune system, feeding it enough vitamins and minerals is the way to go. We all know that Vitamin C has been proven to improve immune response but don’t forget that all of the others are just as important! Our All-In-One Nutrition provides you with the vitamin and mineral content of 2 servings of vegetables in one simple, delicious drink. Bonus points if you add it to a smoothie with fruits!!

3. Hydrate

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I am so guilty of not drinking enough water throughout the day. Water does a million things within your body from detoxifying to breaking down food to filling your veins. You absolutely need to be drinking enough water to keep your body happy and healthy.

4. Exercise

I’m sure you hear this all the time but exercise is a very important part of staying healthy. Studies have shown that being active can reduce your risk of developing disease. Exercise also increases the endorphins released in your body, which make you happier! It can also help you maintain a healthy body weight, which is a huge factor in your overall health. There are too many benefits of exercise to even count! If you want to read more about the benefits of exercise, click here.
