Second, being tired and having your body force itself to carry on daily tasks requires huge amounts of energy. Supplements or other aids will not do the trick if you don’t sleep enough. In fact, if you’re constantly feeling tired, you are more likely to catch those nasty flu and cold.
Therefore drink less, even though this means missing a party or two. Your body will forever thank you.

Sugar has been many times debated as being not only bad for your health, but pretty addictive, as well. Moreover, sugar can seriously damage neurons, as several research shows, but it can be replaced with honey.
There’s a lot of conversations focusing on the source of honey, but just the fact of sweetening your tea with it, instead of sugar, is much better. If you add some lemon, as well, then you’re pretty much set to fight any flu or cold germs.
The idea is that it’s not all just about the benefits of honey and lemon, but also the steams coming from the hot plant beverage. These are known to trigger your nose hair follicles and as tiny as they are, they can flush out any germ.
Then, there’s the great healing traits of this sticky, yet greatly sweet bee gift. Honey is popular for its antibacterial feature. Some people talk about one particular type, called Manuka honey, set to have the highest antibacterial rate.
However, any honey should be much better than processed sugars. Finally, if you squeeze in some lemon juice, you’ll get healthy amounts of vitamin C. This is known to thin the mucus and it’s indispensable when it comes to strengthening the immune system.
So instead of milk and sugar, go for the honey and lemon that are much friendlier with your health!
