Winter Wellness Check-Up

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2014) -  Terra Wellington, Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor, shares tips for a winter wellness check-up.

Staying well this time of the year can be a real challenge for families with small children. In fact, little children get about eight colds a year. Dry air can lower your resistance to cold viruses, so air humidity can help. Another great option is the saline spray and drops from Little Remedies to help moisturize and flush out children's noses. The product has no side effects, no alcohol, no dyes, and no artificial flavors. It really is something you can feel good about giving to your kids.

The holiday season can be stressful, but the key to staying well is sleep, exercise, and getting the right nutrients to fuel your body. When you're low on time, though, closing the gap for those nutrients can be difficult. GNC has a whole-food-based supplement line including a protein powder and bar, and amino and energy formulas in great tasting flavors to help you with filling that gap and giving you the fuel you need. It's called GNC PUREDGE, and it's whole-food based with no unhealthy additives. The line has no artificial additives, colors or sweeteners, no GMO-added ingredients^ and no gluten-added ingredients. If you're on the go, the protein bars with flax and chia are really easy to carry along.

If you're looking for a gift idea this season, here's one that the whole family will love. It's called an AeroGarden, and it's an automated indoor garden that you put on your countertop, they even have super small sizes. The best part is you don't even need a green thumb to grow veggies with this. Even in the dead of winter you can quickly have fresh herbs, salad greens, veggies like tomatoes, or fresh flowers, and it grows them 5 times faster than if you grew them in soil because of its 'hydroponic technology.' Growing a garden with your kids could be a great family activity this winter.
