As a busy business owner and as someone who probably travels frequently, it is important that you stay healthy, and during the winter months, it can be tough. Especially if you have a jam-packed schedule like I do.
I HATE being sick, mostly because it’s a colossal waste of time, and if you also hate being sick, you’re going to love today’s post.
Below are 5 quick tips for keeping your immune system sky-high (and if you have kids, these tips will work for them too!).
#1: Make time to sweat regularly— exercise is a huge stress reliever too! My current fave workouts are from ToneItUp.com and ShrinkSessions.com (you say affirmations while working out, it’s super fun and inspiring).
#2: Find a way to get 7 hours of sleep at night. It truly does the body good and will actually save you time because you’ll make fewer mistakes, be more productive, and prevent illness. There is some pretty compelling scientific evidence that proves it.
#3: Meditate for at least 15 minutes a day. If you are in the Travel Expert Marketing Academy you have access to a special client-attraction guided meditation. It’s designed to relax you, calm your mind, raise your vibration, create new supportive beliefs in your subconscious, and energetically attract more DREAM clients to you. Do this meditation 2-3 times a week and watch magic start to happen in your life. Another great meditation tool to try is HeadSpace.com.
#4: Stay away from processed sugar. Sugar knocks your immune system out. Instead, eat 10-12 servings of veggies a day along with high quality protein, some complex carbs (such as sweet potatoes or brown rice), healthy fats (think: coconut oil, grass-fed ghee, virgin olive oil, avocado), and I’m a big fan of bone broth for all the health benefits it provides.
#5: If you feel a little tinge of something coming on, nip it in the bud right away! Drink as much ginger tea as possible, take some elderberry syrup (the natural kind that doesn’t contain sugar), rest, drink lots of water, and consume ZERO sugar.
To make ginger tea…
Cut off an inch or so of fresh ginger. Cut off the skin, cut it into a few small pieces and put into a mug. Pour boiling water over it. Let it steep for 2-4 minutes. If desired, add some local raw honey to it (it must be raw, and even better if it’s from bees local to you — not the kind that comes in the teddy bears!!).
