The media is inducing fear
and panic this winter season.
Donít be persuaded by the media that if you donít get a flu
shot you will get the flu.
If you believe you are going to get sick, chances are, you
probably will. Be
yourself! Prevent the
spread of germs! As the
winter season approaches use the following health awareness tips:
WASH YOUR HANDS
Hands are the primary method of transporting germs. Wash them before: eating or handling food, touching your eyes, mouth, nose, and after using the bathroom.
Get adequate rest, Eat nutritiously, drink Extra liquids
We are better able to resist getting sick by fighting off germs and infections when we take good physical and mental care of ourselves.
Be respectful of others and of yourself
Reduce the spread of germs. Cover your mouth/nose when you cough or sneeze with a tissue. If no tissues are available, sneeze into your shirtsleeve near the bend of your elbow. Turn away from others. Hey, wash your hands, again!
Use affirmations. Think healthy thoughts
My body is healthy and strong. Every cell in my body is functioning properly.
My immune system is healthy and strong. I am healthy in all areas of my life.
I sleep relaxed and I awaken healthy and refreshed.
Strengthen your immune system
Dry brush your skin with a natural bristle brush. This automatically activates your bodyís healing and immune processes.
Show gratitude to your body
Offer thanks anytime during the day that every system in your body is functioning exactly as it is intended to function.
TALK TO YOUR BODY
Offer encouraging thoughts when you do not feel well. Ask 'what is it that you need from me today', and then listen.
CHANGE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH
In the event that you do become ill, remember to exchange your old toothbrush for a fresh clean one.
Stay home if/when you are sick
Itís all about honoring yourself, protecting yourself from others that are ill, and preventing the spread of illness. If you do become ill set a clear intention for becoming well.
