It seems like everywhere I go these days there are people sneezing, children coughing and notes coming home from school noting this or that has been diagnosed. Beware. February seems to be the season around here for all of the abuse we put our bodies through to come to a head. Late evenings, skimping on nutrient dense foods while indulging in nutrient-free foods, not drinking enough water, not exercising, stressing out and ignoring the signs to sloooow down all contribute to the ultimate demise of our immune system. Ok, dramatics aside our immunity is seriously compromised by stressing our bodies and minds to the max. If we’re able to quiet ourselves and listen the signs are loud and clear.
If you have been indulging in foods you normally don’t and you feel bloated, gassy, lethargic and grumpy this is a call to action. Or if you are wondering why you’re falling asleep earlier than normal or wanting to take a nap it is your body’s way of healing or attempting to. Listen and heed the call, you won’t be sorry.
