As we all know, winter and flu season approaches, and no one likes to be sick (unless you are still at school, hate your job, or have Münchausen Syndrome). Anyway, as your prevention method, keep your hands clean, get vaccinated and consider assembling a simple home care kit for survival.

With the Season of Excesses almost behind us, The New Year brings new possibilities and a good time to reassess your health habits. Maybe just renew a few good ones that have lapsed? Or take the leap and brave new ones? I have some ideas.
Many of us start off the New Year with the good intention of reaching a healthy weight. There are minor changes we can make to start the process. Avoid calories in a glass, the body does not register liquid calories in the same way it does solid calories, it won’t make you feel satiated the way eating does and you end up taking in more. Lose the salt, sodium contributes to water retention. Get some sleep, those who get less than four hours of sleep per night have a slower metabolism than those who snooze for a full eight hours, according to researchers.
