Achoo to you, and you, and you…

It’s HARD when you get sick. Moms are typically the ones taking care of everyone else. What happens when the caretaker is under the weather?

If possible, REST. I know! I know! You have a house, chores, work and kids to take care of …one hand tied behind your back, blindfolded, while saving THE WORLD! Believe me…the laundry will wait.

Often, neglecting ourselves is what gets us sick in the first place!! Here are some tips for taking care of YOU so that you can avoid getting sick this cold and flu season

#1 Wash Your Hands
#2 Don’t Cover Your Sneezes and Coughs With Your Hands
#3 Don’t Touch Your Face
#4 Do Aerobic Exercise Regularly
#5 Eat Foods Containing Phytochemicals
#6 Don’t Smoke
#7 Cut Alcohol Consumption
#8 Relax

If you do get sick, enlist your families help. It is never too early for your children to learn how to care for someone. Even very little ones can cuddle and fetch things for you. Older kids can make you tea and help with chores. It’s a skill that will serve them and you well for years to come!
