There are daily health habits like getting enough sleep, eating health-giving whole foods, drinking the right amount of water for your body, avoiding refined sugar, and exercising in a way that makes you feel awesome. There are weekly health habits like planning your time, meal planning, and meal prepping. And then there are health habits for when you’re sick.
When Sickness Strikes
People with good health habits don’t get sick super often, but when they do, they have certain habits they follow to support their bodies through the sickness. Here are mine:
- Catch it early!
- Take supplements
- Drop all unnecessary activities.
- Fluids, fluids, fluids
- Rest up.
How It Looks
When I notice that I’m starting to feel off, I don’t brush it off (anymore). I take doTERRA’s On Guard Plus softgels right away. I make sure I’m drinking plenty of water (3-4 quarts), and I take a nap or get to bed early. If the sickness is still hanging on the next day, I reorganize my schedule as necessary and continue with the softgels, water, and rest, and take additional supplements. I frequently take garlic, vitamin C, vitamin D, elderberry and echinachea, and apple cider vinegar tea with honey and doTERRA’s Lemon oil. If I catch the sickness early, this supports me and keeps me on my feet and feeling pretty decent. I may take Tylenol if I need pain relief in order to sleep at night.
To your health!
