Stay Healthy with Mega Foods Winter Wellness Pack

Stay Healthy with Mega Foods Winter Wellness Pack

Every year at least someone in our family gets sick.   I say at least but it’s usually all of us at some point during cold and flu season.  I’m not a huge fan of the flu vaccine especially when pregnant so we try to keep ourselves healthy through other ways.   While we don’t always manage to completely steer clear of illness’, we do manage to keep our days spent in bed or on the couch sick to a minimum.

Here’s Five Ways You can stay healthy during the winter too!

  1. Get extra sleep – Realistically, we should be going to sleep when the sun sets and wake up when it rises.  Yeah that doesn’t really happen does it!?!  However, we can aim to get some extra sleep by making a goal to get into bed just 30 minutes earlier than our normal bedtime.  Before you know it, that extra 30 minutes will be routine and you can aim to add a few more minutes to make an even earlier bedtime.
  2. Exercise – Even if it’s just 15 minutes of walking outdoors any form of exercise is better than none.  Not only will it give you more energy but it’s shown that maintaining an active lifestyle helps to keep your immune system up!
  3. Eat clean – Seems like this should be an easy one for some reason during the winter we tend to slack off on eating balanced meals.  We should aim to fill our plate with LOTS of veggies, protein, some fruits and healthy carbs.  Oh and don’t forget those fats!  Most important are the fruits and veggies which are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients to help you combat winter sickness.
  4. Stay social – Don’t be like a bear during the winter and hibernate.  Sure you’ll be reducing your risk to germs by staying indoors but you’ll be missing out on fun dates with friends that will keep your spirits up.
  5. Take supplements – Even if you think you’re getting all the nutrients you need from your foods chances are you aren’t!  This is why you should first, ask your doctor for a full blood work up to see what areas you’re lacking in.  Then second, stock up on healthy, clean supplements to keep your immune system up and body healthy.

One of my favorite brands is MegaFood.  They use a three step approach to providing the real food supplements to the consumers.

  1. First they get real food straight from organic sustainable farms.
  2. The food and ingredients are tested 3 times to make sure it meets the purity standards.
  3. Then they mill, puree, and optimize nutrient content, then dehydrate ingredients to make the best products for our health.

  1. I am a school psychologist so I am around little kids ALL THE TIME…honestly all I do to try and stay healthy through the winter is keep my stress levels in check, get lots of sleep 8-10 hours a night, and maintain my workout routine even when I don’t want to get out of bed and drive to the gym in the freezing cold!!

  2. Those are such great tips! I try to make sure we’re eating lots of fruits & veggies to help our immune system!

    I work in a clinic so I find myself pretty immune to the sickness around me now. It hasn’t always been that way and I do rarely catch the bug (knock on wood). I do try to keep myself hydrated and sleep is very important to me. Thanks for the giveaway : )

  4. I stay healthy by getting enough sleep and eating tons and tons of fruits and veggies!

  5. These are all great reminders! I do well on the eating/exercising but sometimes sleep gets pushed off to the side. I need to work on that especially since I’m pregnant.

    Do you use any of these products on a regular basis? I could probably use some extra vitamin C and zinc in my daily diet!

  6. To stay healthy I wash my hands frequently and make sure I take my vitamins. I also eat lots of oranges since they’re in season!

  7. I drink lots or water, stay active and eats lots of fruits and veggies! Thanks so much for the giveaway 🙂
