Staying Healthy During the Holidays
The Holiday season is upon us, and with the weather getting colder there is going to be lots of sickness going around. Did you know the cold isn’t actually what makes you sick? Actually, what makes you sick is being in such close and closed off proximity with others that are sick. Doesn’t it sound like the family gathering at your grandma’s house? Well, luckily there are some ways you can stay healthy this holiday season no matter how many colds you come into contact with!
Drink Plenty of Water
You may be tempted to drink a lot of Egg Nog, but make sure you drink water, too! Water helps flush out toxins and promote immune system health. As the weather gets cooler, you may not feel as thirsty as normal, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need water. Try to drink at least 8 glasses a day to boost your immune.
Get Your Vitamin C
Drink your OJ and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. If you aren’t big on eating fruits and veggies, you can get your vitamin C through supplements. Ricola Supplement Drops with Vitamin C are by far my favorite. Unlike swallowing a pill or drinking a nasty drink, Ricola naturally helps support the immune system in a tasty drop.
Get Fresh Air
One of the reasons colds spread is because the air is tainted with the virus floating around. We tend to shut windows and doors and lock ourselves up when the weather gets chilly. If you can, try to open a window or a door to let fresh, healthy air in the house especially during large gatherings.
Take a Walk
Walking is a great form of exercise. It gets your muscles working, your heart healthy, and helps pump clean oxygen to all the cells in your body. Fight holiday sickness by taking a 5-minute walk every day.
Take Ricola Dual Action Cough Drops
Sometimes a cold is inevitable. If you start to feel sick, have a cough, or a sore throat, it’s always best to keep Ricola Dual Action cough drops on hand. These multi-symptom cough drops provide relief to keep you going. Dual Action Ricola Cough Drops combine a unique blend of ten natural Swiss alpine herbs, natural menthol, and soothing syrup to help your immune system fight back and take over! Grab a bag of Ricola in Swiss Cherry or Honey Lemon, today!
