Staying healthy in the winter can be a challenge. Ever since my son started preschool, we have battled illnesses almost non-stop every winter. Between him bringing home germs from school and all of us being stuck inside because of the cold weather, it seemed like someone in the house was sick all the time. I have finally found a few things that worked for our family this year! Healthy eating, daily exercise, frequent hand washing, running a humidifier, and taking dietary supplements, such as natural probiotics, all help to keep us well.
I have been trying to eat healthier and exercise more. I shared with you about my weight loss journey and about how I am trying to get back on track after having a minor set back over the holiday season. Basically I did a weight loss challenge last summer that was about so much more than just weight loss. It was an overall body, mind and spirit challenge. I was feeling so much better and had a lot of energy.
I try to incorporate a lot of whole grains, lean proteins and plenty of fruits and veggies with each meal. To remember to take my dietary supplements, I take my probiotic in the morning with breakfast and we all take our multi-vitamins with dinner.
We have been lucky this year to have had a warm winter. I would much rather exercise outside when I can. However, we do have an elliptical, a Wii fit, and exercise DVDs for working out indoors. Recently we all got new bikes. Can you believe I haven’t been bike riding in almost a decade? It has been really fun to go out as a whole family for a ride.
After repeated sicknesses I asked our pediatrician what we could do to help prevent illness. She suggested that we wash our hands a lot, and that we take a natural probiotic. Ever since then, the kids and I have taken probiotics.
I figured if we were going to take probiotics I wanted to get the best one. I did some research and found out that B. Infantis is the strain of probiotic that is recommended most by doctors. Insync probiotic has 8 mg of B. infantis per caplet, as well as 5 other probiotics. It also has GI Guard which allows the probiotic to be gradually released. You can purchase Insync Probiotics at most local Walgreens stores.
I have also found living here in Arizona where it is SO dry in the winter whether it is cold or not, running a humidifier in the house can be really helpful as well. (Be sure to follow the cleaning and sanitizing instructions that came with your humidifier.)
What do you do to keep your family healthy in the winter?
