If you’re traveling to visit with family and friends this holiday season, the last thing you want is to miss out on good times because of a cold or illness. Stay healthy this winter season and enjoy the holidays to the fullest. Here are our immunity boosting tips.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
At Organic Avenue, we are big fans of hydration. Staying properly hydrated aids in pretty much every bodily function, it gives you an energy boost, and improves your overall sense of wellness.
Air travel is especially dehydrating so be sure to drink at least 8 oz. of water per hour on a flight. Avoid dehydrating foods such as alcohol, caffeinated coffee, and anything with an abundance of sodium. Pack your own snacks like fresh fruit and/or vegetables.
One of the best ways to avoid getting sick and stay healthy this winter is to fill up on micronutrients through cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and salads. Research healthy eating options located in the city you are visiting before your trip.
If you won’t have access to organic goodness where you are heading, consider ordering an immunity building booster shot 6-pack. This is one of the most efficient ways to add essential vitamins to your day. The packs can be delivered to your destination (we ship nationally). They also make great gifts!
When we are on vacation, we tend to indulge our sweet tooth on sugary treats and processed foods. Refined added sugars and processed food are extremely hard on your body and make fighting off illness more difficult.
A simple trick to curb a sweet tooth is to focus on eating more fat. It may seem counterintuitive but healthy fats like those from avocados, coconuts, nuts and seeds nourish and energize our bodies without weighing us down.
Our most important tip to stay healthy this winter? Don’t stress! Stress can weaken our immunity more than anything. Plan ahead, stay calm and enjoy your time of rest and relaxation…you deserve it!
