It’s that time of year when everyone seems to be getting sick around me. These are my favorite wellness hacks to try and avoid it or at least shorten the length of the cold. First up is seriously this magical honey, Manuka Honey. It’s produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush. It has amazing healing properties and is the first thing I grab for in my pantry when I am starting to feel a little run down or like a cold is coming on. You just have a teaspoonful straight as is. That’s it! Next up is the newest item in my arsinal, Sun Potion Reishi. You can add it to smoothies, desserts, even coffee. It has great healing properties as well and is a fabulous immune boost. I am a huge essential oils fan. I mix up potions, and tonics for all types of ailments from the common cold, to allergies, dry skin and headaches. But that is a story for another day. For starters, Lemon Oil is so great, just add 1 drop to your water each day and it can help with mood, immune support and diegestion. Epic Bone Broth from Thrive Market is so great when you are sick. It’s such a soothing drink, I just heat it up on the stovetop and pour it in a mug to sip on. The kids love it too, and bone broth is amazing for immune support and healing the gut by reducing inflammation. Lastly one of my favorite powders is Maca Powder it’s great for energy, mood and stamina boost. Perfect when you are feeling run down, and it adds a great flavor to your smoothies. I know, with the new year, a lot of us want to increase our wellness, and add to our healthy habits. These are my top 5 heath and wellness hacks to kickstart your new year! Enjoy friends!
