Both the holiday and cold and flu season are upon us and it’s hard to not get caught up in the busyness this season brings. To avoid these nasty germs over the holidays, we want to first and foremost practice prevention by boosting our immune system through eating a rainbow diet (lots of coloured fruits and vegetables!), getting enough sleep, adequate exercise and relaxation or time for ourselves. I recently came across this amazing planner called The Passion Planner, you can check it out here http://www.passionplanner.com/ and it’s free to use. If you think you don’t have time for exercise, sleep, relaxation or eating a healthy diet over the holiday season, try scheduling all these things in on a daily basis! You will surprise yourself how much easier it becomes when you simply schedule it in. If you do however come down with a cold or flu we have some amazing natural remedies for you.
5 Cold and Flu Remedies to Get You Feeling Like New Again:
Get Your Mind Aligned
Along with these natural remedies, I would like to stress the power that these remedies have on your body when your mind and your thoughts are aligned with the healing process.

I know many people that will try a natural remedy first, but because they don’t honestly think it works, they result to over-the-counter medication. Your mind has a unique way of triggering your body to heal when you believe that both the remedy and your body have the ability to help you recover.
Try these following mantras:
These remedies want to work with you, so do yourself a favour and get your mind on board too, it will make the process much easier! Work with your body, not against it
Cheers to kicking the cold!
