The basics

 

Get your rest. This is so important. Sleep is important as it is the time the body is healing.

Turn off your Wi Fi at night especially so the body can heal. Put your cell phones on airplane mode (yes the alarm if you use it on there still works in airplane mode!)

 

Eat as close to organic non GMO as you can. If you cannot afford all things organic be sure to try to make small incremental changes where you can in getting you and your family in this direction.

 

Get your sugar intake under control. Watch the sugar you are intaking and lower it as much as you can.

 

Drink lots of water. Keep your body hydrated. Opt for water instead of other drinks.

 

Exercise. Take walks as a family if you are able. Exercise helps to alleviate stress which is so necessary right now.
