It’s almost December, and for mostly everyone, it means yummy holiday food, traveling, and colder weather (unless you live in Florida…hehe)! For those of you that know me, I am the ultimate germ-a-phob. I have rounded up for you my 3 tips I swear by to stay healthy during the winter, and really, any time!
Drink LOTS of water. This may be a no brainer, but it’s true. Water is the only thing that will flush germs out of your system. It will help clear up your skin, speed up your metabolism, ward off against sickness, give you energy, need I say more? If you need to, fill up a jug of water in the morning and make it your goal to finish that before you go to bed. Or, set an alarm on your phone to drink 1 glass of water every 1-2 hours. My absolute favorite water is the Alkalife 10 Spring Water. I am not kidding you, this is the most delicious water I have ever tasted. I used to treat myself with Fiji water, but now this is my go-to. Alkalife 10 is sourced from underwater caves below the earth, and it is infused with minerals to make it have a pH level of 10. The water tastes so fresh and it also is extremely smooth. I go through a bottle so easily because it goes down so smoothly, and I also like it first thing in the morning because it fills me up with electrolytes to make me feel extra hydrated!
Take your vitamins! My 5 vitamins I swear by when I am coming down with something are:
- Lipo-Spheric Vitamin C Packets
- Black Elderberry
- Garlic Pills
- Wellness Formula
Keep your feet warm! The easiest way to lose heat is through your head and your feet, and it is so easy to forget to put socks on when you’re walking around the house in your sandals, or when you just want to slip your boots on to go outside. Keep your feet warm at home with some cute socks!
I hope these tips help you stay healthy during this holiday season! Much love to all!
I’ve been getting lots of questions on why I do Cryotherapy, which is that crazy time capsule looking thing you may see me step into on my Instagram stories or Snapchat. Cryotherapy is a 3 minute process in which you go into this big intimidating looking machine and it surrounds your bodies with -170 degree temperatures. What this does, is it speeds up your cells to regenerate and recover, and takes away any inflammation in your body! I do this because I have an autoimmune disease as well as lower back issues, and I have noticed a HUGE difference in how I feel the last 6 months I’ve been doing this. I have more energy, I am in less pain with my back, and I am overall feeling better! The 3 minutes doesn’t sound like a long time, but when you’re naked (YES NAKED! hehehe) in sub zero temperatures, it sometimes feels like a long time. The first few times I did it, I was so nervous and would dread it, but after a while, I got used to it and realized it’s all a matter of distracting yourself and putting mind over matter! Some people use it for arthitis, weight loss (you burn 500-800 calories per session, for real!), antiaging, amongst other things. If you have any questions about it, please let me know! It’s not as intimidating as it looks 🙂
On Sunday we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary! Chase and I have gone through a mix of long distance, living together, long distance again type of dating situations, and this last 1 year of marriage has been the most stable, consistent, and fun year of our lives. We celebrated by spending a night at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Westin Resort, and it was nothing less than perfect! Check out the resort here . The on premise food and service was amazing, and the room had a view of the ocean. We spent the day at the beach, and went bar hopping down Las Olas and ended up at The Lobster Bar for dinner. We of course got fish, and it was so delicious, one of my favorite meals! Below are some pictures of our fantastic weekend.
