Flu Season?

It used to be the flu season all year round for us but this is the first time this year that we're all sick. Hopefully, all that juicing and supplementing and trying to get more exercise and eat more fruits and vegetables is starting to work its magic.

Whatever it is, we will keep this up for now.
  • At the moment, we are all taking a multivitamin each a day accept weekends.
  • We take fresh vegetable juices on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. That is 4 times a week. We try to take it on an empty stomach, half an hour before food.
  • We don't get enough exercise but we try to take the kids to the park at least once a week. Hubby plays badminton once a week and works out at the gym during lunch once or twice a week. I do my home workouts 2-3 times a week. 
Hopefully, this keeps us healthy. It is end of April now. I think this is the first time we have not fallen sick for close to 4 months. That is certainly a record when you have a home with young kids. Young kids always fall sick from germs in daycare and school and pass that along to parents and this happens rather frequently.

Electronic Cigarettes

My husband used to be quite a heavy smoker. He smoked about a pack of cigarettes a day. Fortunately he had the will power to stop smoking. At first he limited his smoking to just the balcony of our apartment and later on when we moved out to a house with no balcony, he stopped.

 It's a good thing he stopped, otherwise I would have to look for tips on quiting smoking including using an electronic cigarette. I didn't know there was such a thing before. How interesting.

An electronic cigarette can help you to take a break from the more harmful traditional cigarette. It even comes in a variety of flavors from menthol to flavorless with no nicotine. The addiction to nicotine can really last for years. It is really hard to kick the smoking habit. I can see the effects for myself.

Even though my husband has quit smoking for years now, he still yearns for a smoke whenever there are gatherings or whenever he sees another smoker. I'm glad I never took up smoking. Pin It
