• Quick Tips on Keeping Healthy this Winter

    How healthy do you feel, really?

    It’s officially winter time and the sniffles have now started their travel season. But there are ways to prepare for winter and keep yourself feeling top notch.

    Know Your Body

    The most important element of health is to listen to your body. If you are feeling sluggish, it is often because you are not getting enough physical activity to keep your energy levels up. Lethargy (in the absence of illness) is your body telling you to get up off the couch and get active.

If that is the case for you, then I can suggest a self-reward system. Continue reading
