Let’s talk about seasonal change, time flies, your mindset, your metabolism, and stretching your neck and shoulders.
Whoa, but wasn’t it just the 4th of July a few weeks ago? So here we are again, the beginning of another new school year and the precursor to the fall season. Here’s what you need to remember; whenever there are seasonal transitions, there always seems to be an increase in infections and illness. I recently read an article that totally stunned me – we have in us and on us more bacterial and virus cells than we have cells in our complete body, and it is only when we maintain “homeostasis” that we stay well and healthy.
When the seasons change, and we go from hot to cold, our immune systems can sometimes become compromised, and the “bad” bacteria and viruses gain a strong-hold and a cold or the flu catches us off-guard. To lower your risk for getting sick, there are a few strategies you can employ daily. They are: wash your hands after you have been out in public, get extra sleep (listen to your body), reduce your sugar intake, boost your Vitamin D3 and your Vitamin C intake, and eat more of the “fall vegetables” that are being harvested. The more steps you take to prevent illness, the greater the likelihood you’ll make it through the fall and winter without getting sick. Stay healthy my friends. BG
