Strong All Season

Staying Well

A healthy routine works like body armor, protecting us from the threats that constantly bombard us. We come into contact with environmental and seasonal threats every day amid all of our activities.

We don’t always pay attention to our health until something slips through a chink in the armor and we feel like we need the extra boost. By living a healthy lifestyle and making proper choices, you can give your body the boost it needs and stay strong all season.

How Environmental Threats Move

As you know, environmental threats have the ability to travel. They can move in and out of the body via exposure pathways. 

They enter the body through the mouth, ears, nose, eyes, and skin. They exit through excrement, sneezes, coughing, or pores in the skin. Stopping the movement along these pathways is critically important, and fortunately it is also simple. 

You already know how to minimize your exposure pathways. It’s all the things your mom told you to do: wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough, keep your room clean, don’t touch your eyes or pick your nose. 

It’s these simple things that will help limit the spread of environmental threats.

Staying Strong All Season

So, what lifestyle choices can you make to support your body and stay strong all season?

Here are three steps to staying well:

1. Prevent

First, limit the exposure pathways in and out of your body. Thoroughly washing your hands is one of the best ways to do this while protecting yourself and others from environmental threats.  Along with regular hand washing, make sure to  keep yourself, your space, and your air clean. 

Essentials for Limiting Exposure: Wash your hands frequently, keep your household surfaces clean, cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze, and stay at home if you feel unwell.

2. Strengthen

Now that you’ve addressed the exposure pathways, pay attention to giving your body what it needs to stay well. Fortunately for you, you’re already living a lifestyle that can keep you strong—the wellness lifestyle! By eating right, exercising, resting, managing stress, and reducing your toxic load, you have a head start in staying strong all season.

3. Respond

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, things slip through the cracks. When that happens, it’s time to address some of the effects. Follow medical guidelines and procedures, and then remember there are a wide variety of essential oils and products that can provide soothing and comforting aromas.
