Avoid meeting SICKNESS

Summer is here. Time to get out in the sun and have fun. Yet, it is the time of the year that colds and flu lurks around the corner waiting to hit our immune system and leaves us sick at home.

Unfortunate for me, I got hit by colds and a damn sore throat, even though I took some precautions to avoid this sickness. But this colds and sore throat won't stop me in my work. What I did is to give remedy to this sickness, and it costs me some money and effort.

If you don't want to suffer like me, here are some few tips to avoid getting sick in the first place.

Hello vitamins C and E. 
Vitamin C prevents you from getting colds and even helps you get over a cold faster. Also, "Vitamin E makes white blood cells more efficient at fighting off infection" explaines by Brian Levine, M.D., medical director of The Cough Center in Laguna Hills, CA. You can get Vitamin C by taking supplement or eating fruits vitamin-rich like citrus fruits. Almonds, peanut butter, and sunflower seeds are all good sources of E.

Restful sleep
When you body is fatigued, you tend to get sick because your body is tired and your immune system get weak. This will be the chance of flu to attack and get past of your defenses. So sleep well and don't deprive yourself of sleep.

Eat healthy
Include a healthy selection of vegetables and fruits in you diet. Avoid too much sugar as possible because it's known to your immune defenses.

Yep, the most common tip but gives you a great defense against sickness. It's a great way to boost your immune system. It also increases you blood circulation and make it flow better, thus allowing your defenses to fight an illness in your system.

Wash and sanitize
It's the best prevention in getting flu. Wash your hands frequently using natural soap and lather up thoroughly, as long as singing a happy birthday song. With this, you can kill viral germs that causes colds and flu. Use a hand sanitizer if you can't wash your hands.

Drink regularly
Not alcoholic beverages, but water. Yes, drinking water regularly is healthful. It flushes out the toxins which cause diseases as well as other harmful substances that we expose ourselves everyday.

Have a good laugh
After all, laughter is the best medicine. :)

I'm a fan of blog sites coz I love reading. I always wanted to have a blog of my own but I'm just not good in maintaining one. That's because I'm a laaaaaaazy and start-now-finish-it-someday type. Also, I don't have the talent in writing, which is really unfortunate for me :) I'd attempted many times to keep a blog but it always ended up either empty or left hanging or simply forgotten. There was one blog I kept before - that's because it was required by our college professor - but luckily.. it was forgotten after I graduated. Since then, I always tried to set up a new blog but, yeah, it was, as always, forgotten.

And now, my friends/classmates a.k.a. Ban of Belers *scratch Belers*.. Ban of Brothers (BoB) got back to blogging (I dunno if they stopped like I did. :D). They always skyped to visit their blogs and blah blah. As their friend *angel face*, I visit their blog for the sake of an increase on their $. Haha. Nah. I did it just because they said so. But really, it's for the $, right? :)

One of my friend, Mish, got encourage to make a blog of her ow. So she did, and as well as I. Well, I just hope and pray to the gods of blog that I can keep this blog up and kicking.
FIRST BLOOD! *for this blog* :))
