Wash, wash, wash your hands! And I give my kids Horehounds Blend (homeopathic) at the first little cough I hear to help prevent it from traveling down and sounding like croup…

Sleep and a healthy diet. I definitely notice that when either of these is lacking, I'm more prone to catching bugs.

I suggest getting a full 8 hours of sleep every night. Studies show that sleep deprivation leads to weight gain and lack of focus during the day.

Eat healthy, take your vitamins, and hand sanitizer. Lots and lots of hand sanitizer. Also a shopping cart cover for the baby.

Drinking water, vitamins (especially D!), lots of hand washing, exercise, eating well and getting sleep. Easy right? πŸ˜‰

I suggest making sure that at least one third of each meal contains fruits or vegetables.

Sometimes a nice hot shower can help me fight off something. Most times my showers are super fast. ( my house falls apart when I am not there)

I suggest planting your own organic garden or participating in a community garden. We have our own garden, and grow fruit and veggies every year. That way, we are assured that only earth-friendly insect repellents are used and that the produce is NGMO. Gardening is a workout as well.

Drink tons of water and rest when your body feels run down.

My tip for staying healthy is to press the "pause" button and abstain from the tv, computer and video games every so often, go out doors and exercise in the sunshine. The devices will be there when you get back!

Drink hot tea if you wake up with a sore throat. And take probiotics whenever you are coming down with something – and especialy if you've been on atibioitics. πŸ™‚

My tip is take vitamin c at the first sign of a cold.

Stay hydrated! It doesn't have to be water (most drinks are hydrating), but make sure you drink enough fluids!

I love to take every day recipes and tweak them to make them healthier. For example in my morning pancakes I add wheat germ and substitute applesauce for oil, add fruit, and use egg substitute. They always turn out yummy and I feel a lot less guilty!
