Part of this is that more people are pent up inside with each other. Part of this is because we’re all racing around overextending ourselves to try to make things as merry as we possibly can. We wear ourselves out and wear our immune systems down, leaving ourselves open to those colds and flus- and then we share it with the folks we love.

Want to pass on giving a cold or flu (the gift that keeps on giving)?

well there’s some pretty simple things you can do that will help with that…

  • get enough sleep
  • wash your hands frequently
  • eat a balanced diet
  • drink liquids, especially water, liquids with vitamin C or hot liquids, depending on what feels right
  • listen to your body. if it feels tired, get more rest. If it feels stiff, stretch or get a massage
  • build wiggle room into your schedule so that you have time for serendipity but also so you have time to take care of yourself
  • split up the responsibilities- you don’t have to do it all
  • put moisture in the air, so your head doesn’t get stopped up
  • cover your nose and mouth if you cough and sneeze
  • if you start having signs or symptoms that you’re getting sick, don’t try to tough it out. slow down, rest more, drink liquids. It’ll all be there when you’re feeling better

Most of all, pay attention to your own wellbeing so you’ll have the strength, time and energy to enjoy the wonders of the season and cherish others, rather than just soldier through an endless list of tasks

There’s lots of approaches to alternative health, but it starts with the simple things that bring us into alignment  with our own centers, our own health, and our own wellbeing.  So let good enough be good enough, listen to your body and have happy holidays
