Swine Flu...

So by now everyone has heard of the swine flu which is so far has effected around 150 people. We all know that the media hypes up everything they can get their hands on. But what most of us don't know is that the regular common flu kills thousands of people every year! Of course there is cause for concern with the "swine flu" because it is the unknown but no need to panic at this time. Here are some tips to keep your immune system strong and hopefully keep that swine flu and any flu for that matter away!

  • Wash your hand with anti bacteria soap for at least 20 seconds often through out the day!
  • Keep Anti bacterial hand gel handy
  • Take vitamin C daily
  • Take a daily echinacea vitamin (these can be found at any drug store or health food store)
  • Make sure to catch up on your zzz's. Lack of sleep can leave you with a weak immune system. (Adults should have between 7-9 hrs of sleep a night)
  • Try and keep stress levels down. ( take deep breaths if you are feeling stressed! Yoga is always a GREAT stress reliever!)
  • Exercise! Not only a great de-stresser but also helps boost your immune system!
