Stay healthy this winter

This post is going to be short & sweet. Don't want to get sick this winter, or already feel like you are coming down with something? Here are some tips to stay well (or get better)!

Stay Healthy Tips

  1. Drink and eat lots of greens - greens, lovely greens, will nourish your body and give it the nutrients it needs
  2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate (with water... not soda, not coffee...good ol' H20)
  3. Start your day with hot lemon water to flush the body and prep it for the day ahead -  keep squeezing those lemons into your water throughout the day, too
  4. Eat as many whole foods as possible and try to stay away from lots of processed, packaged junk - less junk = less energy for digestion & more energy to keep you healthy!
  5. Make sure you are letting your body rest when needed, and getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night
  6. Start oil pulling to remove some of that nasty bacteria from your mouth
  7. Incorporate nutrient-dense bacteria and inflammation fighting foods like turmeric, oregano, garlic, cinnamon, raw honey & blueberries
  8. Don't stop exercising just because its cold out and you got lazy (I know how it is) - find ways to work out inside the house if you can't possibly survive the outdoors (Physique 57 makes amazing DVDs) - keep your blood pumpin' and your skin sweatin' (unless you are really sick, then you should take a break)
