No one wants to be sick, ever. With the work, family, and social events, it can be easy to tax your system and put your immune system into overdrive. This precarious situation can leave you exposed to illnesses that come around with the cold weather. From the flu to the common cold, here are our best tips for staying healthy and enjoying yourself this winter:
Regular therapeutic massage sessions can do more than just relax your mind and body. In fact, they can strengthen your immune system to enable your body to naturally protect yourself. With the boost to your circulatory system, massage enhances the flow of blood and lymph throughout your body. This can aid your system in removing toxins and depressing the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which can weaken your immune system.
Quality sleep is a second absolute must during the flu and sickness season. When you sleep, your body repairs itself and this is important to maintain your health. Getting enough shuteye can also help you feel more positive and lend extra energy to your endeavors.
- Stress Management
Any period of life can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to run you ragged. This year, find a stress management style that works for you. Whether it’s massage, yoga, meditation, a good book, an evening walk, finding a way to deal positively with stress can be a game changer.
