NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - Terra Wellington, Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor, shares some family winter wellness tips.
Flu activity is high this year, and it's fairly easy to catch since people with flu can spread it to others up to about six feet away. At the first sign of flu-like symptoms, like a fever, fatigue or chills, try a homeopathic medicine called Oscillococcinum®, or Oscillo®. It helps nip those symptoms in the bud to reduce the severity and duration of the illness. One box works for the entire family, and anyone ages 2 and up can take it.
You want to make sure that you and your family are getting the right amount of calcium for strong bones to support those activities, especially your teen daughters. Teen girls need more calcium than older women, and 86% of teen girls do not get enough calcium. So you can check out Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews for you and your daughter. They come in milk chocolate and caramel flavors, and two chews provide 100 percent of the daily value of calcium plus vitamins D3 and K.
Eating right is another component to staying healthy. Check out Fresh Express' 30 day challenge by swapping out high-calorie food options for lower-calorie, more veggie-filled meals. You can get some inspiration from Fresh Express salads with their free app from SaladSwap.com to help tame those high-calorie cravings. For example, you're craving a bacon cheeseburger... why not swap it out for a lower-calorie salad recipe that has a similar flavor profile, all in an effort to eat healthier. The app tracks meals, calories, and activities -- with a bonus of coupons.
