How You Stay Healthy...

Recommended Posts

I try getting enough rest at night, if I feel something coming on I try to head to bed a little earlier.

I wash my hands very frequently.

I am trying to eat more healthier, fruit and veggies for snacks.

I also wipe my desk with lysol wipes too, keeps everyones germs at bay

I keep my fingers crossed that the flu bug stays away :)

I think eating chocolate can be a healthy thing to do if you eat the dark chocolate where sugar isn't the first ingredient on the list. :) I have a square or two every day, I'm eating Lindt 85% now.

Oh good, every time I spot a Lindt in the store I promise myself that I will check the company for their gluten free status when I get home. But I never seem to remember :( Now I guess it is gluten free if you are eating it :P I'm going into town next Sat., so will pick one up.

It wasn't too long ago I saw a TV special that said chocolate had very healthy effects. I cannot remember exactly what they were, the show was on in the background. I wish I had time to sit and listen, because it seemed interesting.

I floss every day.

Flax seed oil is a regular part of my diet. (So is olive oil)

I'll only purchase all natural, organic, no additative beef or chicken (despite the price :o )

I choose organic/all natural over regular just about every time.

I rarely eat corn syrup.

The only thing plaguing me right now is my nose. It gets stuffy when I lie down at night. But I suspect I've still got something in my diet causing problems. *sigh*

Life is good!

I've had the neti pot for about 8 years now and have never been able to bring myself to use it, although I do suffer the occasional stuffy nose - much less since being gluten-free. Is that really all there is to it? I'm on meds now for the nose, would love love love to get off those, but I think I was scarred by a messy tonsillectomy in the dark ages of medicine where I almost drowned on my own blood, post-op. Maybe I'll try it one of these days.

All about the yoga, the B-complex and the D, through outdoor exercise on a regular basis though and pleased to see that I'm doing most of the other excellent suggestions in the thread.

Part of my good health comes from having grown up with an older and younger brother and learning to ignore annoyances like that. ;)

You can also find a squeeze bottle that use can use for a sinus rinse that might be easier to overcome the mental challenge of using. (Both are easier than the "snort" method - my first introduction to the practice. Man, *that* was tough!) It is very helpful, I must say. (BTW, you're supposed to stay 'upright' - at least not lay down and go to bed - for half an hour after the rinse.)

I would definately give the rinses a try! I used to be on Claritan and Flonase daily. The saline rinse has helped me come off of the Flonase completely, and I only use the Claritan occasionaly.

Another convenient way to do it is with an ear syringe (that's what I use). PM me if you like :)
