5 Tips To Boost Your Immunity During The Holidays

Stress and I? We're like this -- *crosses pointy finger and middle finger tightly together to the point of pain* It doesn't matter if it's for work or for play. If I'm going to be planning it, I'm going to be stressing about it.  So now that the holiday is creeping in, you can just imagine my looming nervous breakdown which --more often than not-- leads to me getting sick all throughout the season.

Good thing I discovered an immunity booster that's guaranteed to make me healthier and stronger even as holiday stress tries to pull my natural defences down.
Fern-C isn't your run-of-the-mill Ascorbic Acid. It's a Sodium Ascorbate which means:
  • It's Vitamin C that doesn't cause stomach upsets.
  • It's a food additive that conserves the colour, taste, and nutrition in food.
  • It's an anti-oxidant that increases body resistance to infections and stress.
  • And, it's a daily dose of awesomeness that's inspired me to list down some valuable tips on how to be stress-free and sick-free this holiday. Watch!

Those last minute deadlines are the worse! Before you go on that well-deserved Christmas vacation, work is going to suck you dry. And that's why you have to be more efficient in managing your time during the busiest schedule of the year. Set lead-times per project. If you get stuck in a rut, move on to the next. Focus. Cut down on distraction and procrastination. Working wiser is better than working harder. It lessens stress and gives you time to rest, too. No sickness happening in this department.

Ah, Christmas shopping… possibly the most stressful activity next to the final stretch at the Olympics. Especially if you plan to hit the mall in December. So what do you do? Get creative! You can buy one of the same thing for all your friends, and personalise them with a special touch. How about writing their names on lovely leather-bound journals with the sweetest flourishes of calligraphy? It's personal and emotional since it's part labor of love. There! Now you even have energy to spare.

Aside from stressing out about what to cook for Noche Buena, another thing that messes with your immune system is how unhealthy some party food can be. So why not divide the cooking responsibility among your relatives with an exciting 'healthy' theme. I'm sure Aunt Bea will be more than pleased to show off her excellent Veggie Fettucine, and Lola Puring will be more than pumped to share her Organic Embutido. No stress. All health.

If you're planning to buy more gadgets for your kids this season --hold that thought. Christmas is all about togetherness, love, family. Not being cooped up at home with the complete lack of verbal communication because everyone's busy with their new X-Box, their new iPhone 6, and their new Bose headphones. Instead of gadgets, get your buns moving for the family trip to the great outdoors! Explore places you've never been to together! Make better memories than scoring game levels. A little fresh air never hurt anyone. It only makes the family bond stronger and healthier.

Now, don't sell yourself short. If there's anyone who needs to take a bow for keeping the holiday (and the whole year) stress-and-sickness-free --it's you! So reward yourself with a little ME TIME. Postpone pesky incoming projects, reschedule meetings. And spend the last few days of the season sipping hot cocoa, reading a book… and yes, catching up on those much needed Zzzz's. The family and your clients will understand. After all, you'll need to recharge for the next onslaught of reality, right?

Do all these with Fern-C --and stress, cough, and colds won't make it into your guest list this Christmas.

Hey, now's the perfect time to get started!
