Nobody wants to be sick and we especially do not want our children to be sick. But what can a family do to keep sickness away? Complete Care Systems has come up with our top three favorite ways to keep healthy and stay away from sickness.
Drink enough water. Our mucus membrane and the immune cells in our bodies cannot work if we are dehydrated. That’s why doctors constantly tell us to hydrate! The general rule is to divide your weight by three. That’s how many ounces you need daily. In addition to that if you drink anything with caffeine you need to drink a glass of water to match it.
Exercise. People who exercise five or more times a week spend 43% fewer days with upper-respiratory infections. You should aim for 30 to 60 minutes of exercise daily to boost blood flow and keep your healthy.
Meditate. According to a 2012 University of Wisconsin study, your mind can cut your chances of catching a cold by 40% to 50%. Meditation reduces physical effects of stress that weaken the immune system. That is why people who mediate are generally healthier and stay away from sickness.
We all want our families to be happy and healthy on a regular basis. Consider making simple changes to your daily routine to keep yourself, and your family, away from sickness.
