A few weeks ago, one of the boys tested positive for strep and the flu. Luckily, no one else caught it. I was super nervous because I haven’t had time to get my flu shot this year, everyone else had theirs back in October. Isn’t it always the mamas (or if you aren’t a mom, the women in general) that slack on taking care of themselves?
One thing I never forget to do, however, is take my vitamins every single day. I put them in the cabinet where I keep our coffee supplies because I know I won’t forget to have coffee. I also started using essential oils last year. I still have mixed opinions about if they really work or not, but they smell so good! I have a few of my favorite go to’s in my makeup bag in my purse that I can easily roll on my wrist or behind my ears for whatever ailment I am starting to feel. I also diffuse them in our home. The kids love to smell it and want to know about each oil that I add. Eating right, although I know it can be hard, is important to staying healthy as well.
What have you been doing this winter season to keep the germs at bay? I would love to hear if you have any tried and true remedies to staying healthy.
Until the Mission is Complete,
