Note to readers: I will be working with Bayer on a series of sponsored posts throughout 2017. As I’m sure you know, opinions are always my own.
I’m not big on official new year’s resolutions. Even in terms of health, I don’t smoke, I hardly drink (some of my friends would tell you that drinking *more* should be my resolution!) and I keep a healthy weight. However, there are some small, realistic tweaks that could enhance health for many of us. Maybe some of these will appeal to you!
If you’re facing a “holiday hangover” (not the alcohol-related kind), part of the problem may be the germs you were exposed to when getting together with friends and family. Does anyone not have a cold? (Fortunately, my month-long cold symptoms seem to be subsiding, but the pleurisy I was diagnosed with before Christmas still won’t go away. Yes, pleurisy. Look it up, I had to!) If you’ve got annoying nasal congestion, hydraSense® can help get rid of it, so you can breathe better…important for work, play and exercise!
Speaking of exercise, I am a huge proponent of walking…and while many experts out there insist that walking outside is the way to go, it’s not happening for me in Canada in January – I can’t even handle the 10 second dash in from the hot tub in this weather! I absolutely adore my treadmill – and, as regular readers know, the amazing treadmill desk my dad built for me. Again, there are experts who urge us not to multitask, but I find I am quite capable of walking and doing one other thing, like blogging, at the same time – I’m actually at my treadmill desk right now as I write this! On days when I’m not teaching, I get on the treadmill first thing after breakfast, otherwise I walk as soon as I get home from work. Either way, it gives me a boost of energy and makes me feel that I’m doing something positive for my health.
Now, while I’m not in the habit of publicly discussing my digestive, um, habits, it’s safe to say that while holiday eating is fun, it may lack the fibre we need to keep things…moving. Keeping yourself hydrated can help, and for effective relief of occasional constipation without bloating, cramping, or gas, you may consider RestoraLAX® for a bit of assistance.
