During the holidays, things can get pretty chaotic. Between work, shopping, and running from one holiday party to the next, you might sacrifice taking care of yourself in order to fit it all in. If you’re wondering how to stay healthy during the holidays so you don’t end up with the unwanted gift of a nasty winter cold or flu, these tips from herbalist and Ivy’s Tea Co. founder Shanae Jones have got you covered!
Get Rest – Lala Salama means rest well in Swahili. This herbal tisane is perfect for relaxing the nervous system by easing stress and nervousness. With ingredients like Chamomile and Lemongrass, this tea will keep you relaxed and help you sleep when you’re done stressing about your entire family coming into town
Boost Your Immune System – You are in close contact with more people than usual during the holiday season and that means more chances to spread germs. Keep your immune system with ingredients like Elderberries, Ginger, Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Turmeric.
Cut The Caffeine – While you may feel like you can not survive the gift wrapping and party hopping without 3 cups of coffee minimum, it’s not good for you at all. Try a herbal tea substitute like Not Coffee with ingredients like roasted Dandelion root, providing a taste, smell, and color similar to coffee. It’ll keep you energized without the crash.
