Winter Wellness: 5 Tips for Staying Healthy This Flu Season

Winter Wellness: 5 Tips for Staying Healthy This Flu Season

There’s no escaping it: flu and cold season is here in the States and it seems everywhere you turn you’re facing coworkers, friends, family, and fellow people fighting off some sort of malady. As the temperatures drop, it's essential to give our immune system a little extra love and it’s not as hard to do as you may think. Here’s five healthy tips that are both easy to incorporate into your daily routine and tasty to boot.


Hydration: Water, the elixir of life! During the hot summer months you hear health and wellness professionals touting hydration, hydration, hydration, but did you know it’s just as important during the colder seasons? Staying hydrated is a key player in warding off the flu. Spice up your hydration routine by infusing water with slices of citrus fruits, berries, or mint. Having a stylish water bottle by your side can make sipping water a delightful habit - have you seen our newest water bottle colors


Electrolytes: During flu season, your body needs a little extra TLC, and electrolytes play a crucial role. Ditch the sugary sports drinks and concentrated juices. Instead, opt for natural sources like coconut water or electrolyte-infused water. These not only help in staying hydrated but also replenish essential minerals, keeping you feeling fabulous. Adding a stick pack of Revive to your water or tea not only gives it a punch of flavor, but provides a dose of electrolytes to your daily routine.
