Health Must Have’s for Fall

Health Must Haves: Fall

It is fall (yay!)…however along with the change of seasons usually comes a new and interesting strand of virus’s. Here are a few must have’s and must do’s to avoid catching a cold this season!

MUST HAVE’S & MUST DO’S:

1. L-Lysine 500mg tablets…L-Lysine boosts the bodies immune system. So give your army some weapons to fight off colds and infections by taking 500mg on an empty stomach morning and night.

2. Antibacterial hand spray or gel…many times during the day we come into contacts with germs. We can not live in a bubble but we can remember to carry antibacterial hand sanitizer with us. Clean off hands after touching door knobs and commonly touched items like gas pumps, etc. Also make sure to wipe down the handle of all shopping carts.

3. Water, water, water…flush out germs as well as give your body the proper hydration it needs to function properly…this amount is 1/2-1 oz. of water per (your) body weight.

4. 8 hours of sleep per night…if you think you are to busy for 8 hours of sleep you will most likely be WAY to busy to get sick! Invest in your health by getting a full 8 hours a night!

5. Guard your ‘rest’ day…we need a day to rest and decompress. Many ‘rest’ days end up becoming errand days. Guard your weekend by setting aside 1 whole day for rest!!!!

Preparing for the Holidays

Preparing for the Holidays

Invest in your holiday wellness with a good game plan!

The holidays are just around the corner! I will be posting on topics like relationships, emotional wellness, holiday fitness and nutrition and of course on the much dreaded post holiday weight issues…but since I am all about balance, holistic (whole person wellness) and prevention, let’s talk some preventative measures today.

This holiday season, eat small, eat often, and move more!

Let that be your mantra this season along with ‘All things In Balance’! It is important to enjoy the holidays but doing so without causing problems later. So let’s break down this preventative statement, eat small, eat often, and move more into simple action steps:

Eat Small
I’m not saying ‘don’t eat the cookie’, I am just saying ‘don’t eat the whole jar at once’! Try to eat small portions for each meal. This will help you burn off the calories and use them up versus end up storing excess calories as fat!

Eat Often
Instead of falling into the typical holiday meal pattern of gorging ourselves with a few massive meals, eat often, every three or four hours! This will keep your metabolism functioning at a high pace and also facilitate your digestive system to properly digesting and absorbing nutrients.

Move More
I know, I know, aying around all day can be a huge part of your families holiday traditions. Well, it’s time to make some new ones. Move more and often! Get up, get out and move! Drag the family out as well and build a snow man, play a game, take a walk, or even set up an active game in the living room or head to the gym for a family workout or yoga class.
