Winter not only brings the promise of warm drinks and cozy sweaters, but it also brings along something much more sinister in the form of stuffy noses, sneezes, sore throats, and irritating coughs. If you are smart, you are taking steps now to boost your immune system and give it a fighting chance against cold and flu season. Because, unfortunately, there is no cure for the common cold, so prevention is your best choice. However, you may want to ease up on those vitamin C tablets you’ve been eating like candy (as they’re not incredibly effective) and try these easy, natural methods instead.
Laundry is one of those inevitable facts of life but is also a chore with many ignored health risks. Most of us simply grab whatever laundry detergent smells, has the cheapest price tag, or is most convenient like laundry pods that can just be thrown in the washing machine. Unfortunately, you may be paying for these hasty decisions. So what is really inside your laundry pod and how and you avoid the nasty chemicals?
It’s that time of year again. When the birds begin to chirp, the sun shows its radiant face, and all of nature is celebrating the thrill of new life. It is also a great opportunity to throw open the windows, roll up your sleeves, and get to work scrubbing away the grime and tidying the clutter that has been slowly building up over the long winter months. Grab your cleaning bucket and rags and let’s get to work!
