3: Eat Good Mood Food
We are as healthy as what we eat, and that is both of body and mind. You only need to do a quick Google search to see how eating fruit, veggies and protein will not only help you fight off colds and flu but also improve your mood.
One of the best additions to make to your diet during the cold and flu season is some Bone Broth (check out Pinterest). It’s easy peasy to make, simply pop bones and veggies with water in a slow cooker and set to cook. Once you have your broth strained, freeze it in an ice cube tray and add it to gravies and stews. Yummmmmmm.
4. Take Time To Breathe
It goes without saying that every activity is getting completed faster and faster. Technology demands our attention, kids are wanting our focus and then there is the whole work/life juggle most of us mums deal with every day. With all this going on we forget to take time to breathe. You know that big deep belly breath that balances our nervous system and recalibrates our energy.
Not only does breathing help you find your calm amongst the storm of emotions and feelings we all experience but taking time out to breath also reduces the stress we put on our bodies meaning that you are at your best to fight off any possible germs during this cold and flu season. Set an alarm on your phone to go off every hour and for 30 seconds to a minute breathe all the way down to the bottom of your belly.
