Take Care of Yourself During Change of Weather

Hello, lovely people. I hope you are all well.

It’s getting warm here. I can see tiny teeny green leaves coming out from our grape wine. Can’t wait for the warm weather! Although I am so looking forward to the warm weather, my hay fever is having its moment. Half of my colleagues in the office are sick. I guess it happens when weather changes. I got flu few weeks ago as well. So I thought it might be a good idea to put together a post about how I deal with change of weather. Just few things I do to boost the immune system.

Remember that I am not a professional to give health advice. These are just my home remedies that I want to share with you.

Water

Water!Water!Water!

I intend to drink a lot of warm water when weather changes. I think we all know the benefits from drinking water, flushing out toxins, boosting immune system, helping with healthy skin, etc.

Ginger Turmeric tea

I also drink a cup of ginger turmeric tea everyday, especially in the cold seasons. I grow some ginger and turmeric at my back yard. They come really handy. The tea can boost the immune system. Both ginger and turmeric has anti-bacterial properties and anti-inflammatory effects.

All you need is 1 tsp grated ginger, 1 tsp grated turmeric, 2 cups of water and a small saucepan. Add everything in the saucepan, bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat to medium and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Pour the tea through a strainer and enjoy. You can add honey if you like.

Mint tea

One more kind of tea I have regularly is fresh mint tea. I especially love the chocolate mint. It’s so relaxing. In addition, it helps with nose congestion and soothes the throat. I can’t have enough of it. I love it hot in winter and cold in summer.

It’s super easy to make too. You just boil some water and pour over chopped mint leaves. Leave it brew for 5-10 minutes. Pour through a strainer and enjoy. Again, you can add some honey if you like.

Eucalyptus essential oil

Eucalyptus tree is native to Australia. I love the Eucalyptus essential oil. It helps with cold, cough, running nose and sore throat. It’s essential for me to have it in my house. I use it in a diffuser in my room when I catch a cold. Sometimes I even rub a little bit around my nose when my nose congestion gets really bad.

Lanolips 101 Ointment superbalm

You know what a flu can do to your nose and your skin. I use my Lanolips 101 ointment on the skin around my nose. It will prevent flaky skin. It’s ultra medical grade lanolin. Basically, I can use it anywhere, dry lips, cuts, flaky skin. Really good stuff.  🙂

That’s a wrap. I hope it helps. Stay healthy and stay strong!

  1. Lots of water and mint tea are the way to go! Really, anything warm and cozy in the winter is a sure way to get through the winter blues. Spring will come, and make the most of it when it arrives!
