It happens to everyone now and then even if you exercise regularly, eat well, meditate, pray, drink magic potions, or get shots, none of us escapes entirely from cold season! Or at least I have not met anyone yet who escapes from it!
In the winter we are indoors more, touching things that everyone else touches and not getting quite as much fresh air. We tend to get colds, some worse than others! Here are some things I like to do to prevent colds as well as things that make me feel better if I catch one.
*drink lots of liquids – especially warm lemon water in the morning (or all day)
*get regular exercise
*wash your hands – make your family wash their hands!
*take a probiotic
*use a nasal spray or neti pot to keep your nasal passages moist
*use a humidifier if your house is dry
*take saunas if you have that luxury (I don’t know if this truly helps, but it makes me happy, and that counts for a lot!)
Now if all else fails and you get the cold anyhow here is what makes me feel better. I have two little concoctions I put together.
