Everyone’s had a cold before. Usually, they come out of nowhere. One day you’re feeling absolutely fine, the next your throat is starting to get sore, your nose is running and there might be a tickle in your chest.
Anyone who is self-aware realises these symptoms when they rear their ugly heads, but instead of just grabbing a tissue box, there are ways to help alleviate the nasty byproducts of the flu virus and nip them in the bud.
Lei Cha’s holistic approach to health and wellness is steeped (pun intended) in ancient Chinese traditions. When coupled with modern-day science, you give yourself the absolute best chance to beat the winter flu, so keep reading if you want the know-how!
Rest and de-stress
There’s a deep mind-body connection and these work intrinsically when it comes to fighting off a cold. Even if you’re feeling tired, overworked or sad, these emotions can bring your immune system down so much so, that you can fall victim to the lurking flu. If you feel a cold creeping up on you, listen to your body. Get all the sleep that you’re physically able to. No more late nights. Getting a solid handle on your stress will do you a world of favour, as stress also pumps up the level of cortisol in your body, which will deplete your immune system quicker than you can stop it. Take a bath, go for a light walk, try some meditation. These are all scientifically proven to reduce stress.
It’s no fun to have to blow your nose while you’re at work or if you’re walking around, so staying hydrated is key to getting rid of this gunk. Fluids play a vital part in helping your body fend off and beat nasty flus that make their way around in Winter. Lucky for you, Lei Cha has the perfect Healthy Me Restorative Tea mix to help not only rehydrate but to actively fight off the flu.
