As the temperatures drop and the sniffles start to spread, it's time to fortify your immune system against the onslaught of cold and flu viruses. While proper hygiene practices and a healthy lifestyle are paramount, sometimes our bodies need an extra boost to ward off seasonal illnesses.
It’s hard to believe that school is just around the corner. And if you’re like us, our end of Summer to-do list seems never-ending! Between the shuffling of kids back and forth from activities to balancing all those work/home tasks—not to mention fitting in time just for you—it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day, and certainly not enough energy to get it all done.
Things are finally starting to get back to (the new) normal! As we prepare to go back to school and to work, we’ve never been so excited to wait in lines, make small talk, or sit next to that guy on the bus that likes to listen to his music without headphones.
On the other hand, there are some things that we may never go back to--like nibbling on a coworker’s leftovers from the breakroom fridge. If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that germs are everywhere. And after being away for a while, your immune system may be more at risk than ever.
After finally getting the chance to talk to your peers without buffering issues, the last thing you want to do is be sent right back home again with a cold or the flu. So how can you protect yourself? Let’s talk about some ways to boost your immune system as you and your family go back to school and work.
Summer is synonymous with outdoor adventures, soaking up the sun, and enjoying all that nature has to offer. The only downside to exploring the great unknown? You may come home with a gnarly scrape, bug bite, or sunburn to show for it! These minor skin irritations are just part of the journey. But they still sting, burn, itch, and throb! Plus, even the most superficial break in the skin can potentially get infected.
The good news? Many of these types of irritations can be soothed naturally at home (or even on the go) with a high-quality topical relief gel of your choice!
