As the seasons change, temperatures fluctuate and the kids are back at school, we know the bugs can start to circulate. Common sense has to prevail in lots of ways, but there are a number of simple things we can do to protect ourselves, and guard against airborne germs, as well as helping our bodies and immune systems to stay strong.
Where to start fighting the bugs?
The first step toward staying healthy is to choose a healthy lifestyle. It’s the most simple and effective way to fight away bugs and germs.
Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when it is supported by healthy-living strategies such as:
- a diet high in fruit and vegetables
- regular hydration and exercise
- adequate sleep
- good hygiene (eg, washing your hands frequently)
- low stress
Supplement a healthy lifestyle with these common-sense daily practices so you are one step closer to protecting yourself and your family:
- wash your hands frequently
- clean home and work surfaces regularly
- cover your mouth and nose if needed
- don’t share drinking and eating utensils
An added layer of protection
If you want to be extra sure, and add another layer of protection against seasonal ills and zealous bugs, then using pure organic essential oils to build up the defences is a great place to start. We all know this, but sometimes we have to remind ourselves.
