Life-Work Balance – Ep. 15: Easy tips to beat the flu season
We’re still in the middle of winter and everybody’s sick! Have you noticed?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last Friday, “One of the worst flu outbreaks in the United States in nearly a decade worsened last week and will likely linger for several weeks, causing more deaths.”
I’m crossing my fingers because I haven’t got the flu – yet, I should probably say, and hopefully I won’t. I haven’t had a flu since 2013 and I’m very happy to see that what I’ve been doing since 2012 is apparently working.
A lot of my friends keep asking me: “What’s your secret? Are you just lucky to beat the flu season every year?” And I tell them: “No, I’m human just like you guys! The difference is that I pay attention to what I eat and how I take care of myself every single day.” It’s about being diligent every single day. By doing that, my immune system is supposedly stronger and it can fight back more efficiently.
You’re most likely a small business owner or a solo entrepreneur like me and, if you get sick, your business will suffer. So we really need to take good care of ourselves and try to avoid getting sick or sales will drop because we can’t dedicate our full attention to it.
Watch my Periscope broadcast below and learn about easy tips I follow in order to beat the flu season. I mainly talked about foods to eat and to avoid in order to strengthen your immune system and hopefully avoid this year’s bug (which is awful from what I heard, and it can last for weeks). I also shared tips to listen to your body and rest when you need to fight back.
