Please Don't Get Sick!
I feel like everyone I talk to is either getting sick, just getting over being sick or taking care of a sick family member!!!! Please don’t get sick!
For many of us it is simple a hope and prayer that somehow, some way the bug passes over our house, with no real plan to help that happen. Not in my house! We have a whole system and it really helps to keep us healthy even with a little three year old running around.
Let me give you some of my favorite tricks both with and without essential oils to keep your immune system strong and help you feeling your best through this season of illness. Keep reading to learn more!
Staying hydrated! Hydration is very important even if we aren’t feeling well, however when we aren’t feeling well it is very important. Did you know that you should drink half your body weight in ounces a day at a minimum? When you are fighting something or feeling under the weather I recommend increasing that to help you body flush out the bad. I personally add a citrus oil to my water to help with the detoxification process. I prefer Lemon, Grapefruit or Green Mandarin although you have a lot of different choices.
Get Some Sleep
Our bodies recover when we sleep, therefore it is always important to get enough sleep, especially this time of year. So what is enough sleep? You really need 7-9 hours as an adult. It is stated in some research that women actually do need more sleep then men, but I will let you decide on that one. No matter what, you need to make sleep a priority. This is going to help you body fight what is coming its way and stay strong.
Take You Supplements
Eating healthy goes without saying. The more whole foods you are eating the better for your body. Give it the fuel it needs. On top of eating healthy I also recommend taking good supplements. I personally take doTERRA’s lifelong vitality daily and I credit these supplements in large to why I haven’t gotten sick in over 4 years besides an occasional couple day sniffle.
Probiotics such as doTERRA’s PB assist can also help keep your gut healthy which has been shown to support a healthy immune system.
Wash Your Hands
Wash your hands regularly especially when out in public. I carry my OnGuard hand sanitizer with me in my wallet at all times. When I grab my shopping cart at the store I spray down the handle, and then spray my hands again when I am done at the store. I use that stuff all day every day! It is so easy to carry and so easy to use.
When you first realize you are fighting something, or you are around people who are not feeling great it is time to start oiling!!! Check out this graphic to see some of my favorite recipes and oils to have on hand and in the cycle regularly.
Besides these oils, during this time of year I put OnGuard in the diffuser in the main living area of our home every day for at least 5 hours. I also take OnGuard+ Softgels daily when I take my supplements to keep my immune system functioning at top notch. When I am traveling or around people who are not feeling well I increase that to 2-3 a day.
These are just a few simple tips that have helped me to stay extremely healthy over the last 5 years. I hope they help you keep your family healthy as well.
