So, its 20 degrees here in NYC. It is freezing!  Here are some quick tips to stay healthy, warm and on-track!

WinterDepression

1. Warm up your Smoothee

Add one scoop Shaklee 180 Café Latte and one scoop Shaklee 180 Chocolate to eight ounces of warmed up almond, soy or regular milk – yummy!

Here are some other recipes

What does a Shaklee 180 Smoothee have to do with your immune system?  30% of women do not get enough protein, and that can seriously affect your immune system. Additionally, the smoothee helps you retain lean muscle mass.  More muscle burns fuel and warms up the body on chilly days!

2. Invest time in your food prep once a week

Make one new soup or entree a week. Freeze the rest. At the end of the month. You’ll have four new favorite dishes! It is important to invest time and thought in your nutrition. It is also fun! Here is a quick and easy Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup to warm you up (hint: you can use chicken or turkey sausage).

3. Take an immune booster

Try Nutriferon. Your body has to work harder to keep your immune system strong in the cold weather! And if you feel a cold coming on, Defend and Resist will help you knock it out.

4. Use supplements to fire up the body

B-complex – The energy will get you and your body moving.

Corenergy – Supports the Adrenal glands to help you fight your challenges for the new day (the Adrenal Gland is the fight or flight gland).

Energy Chews – Convenient chewy supplement with green tea to spark energy in your body!

With the busy holiday season approaching and the temperatures dropping, it’s important to stay warm, healthy and happy! Use these tips to help you power through and still look and feel amazing.

Do you want to improve cognitive performance? Shaklee’s exclusive new formula called Mind Works is clinically proven to do just that in healthy adults. Shaklee selected a special guarana extract that enhances memory, sharpens focus and improves reaction time. Who can’t use that?

Check out this fascinating video about your brain:

Did You Know?
1. Your brain consists of 100 billion neurons. There are anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 synapses for each neuron. These synapses are what give us memory, reaction time and focus! This only happens through synapses. It reminds me of the old phone system where to connect your call, they had to plug into the switchboard! lily.tomlin.switchboard.operator

2. Age-related mental decline can start as early as age 20, when our brains begin to shrink. We are not losing brain cells but we’re starting to lose connections between the brain cells. This decline accelerates with age, so that by age 60 our brains are slower and learning new things becomes more difficult.

3. But check this out: according to Dr. Laurel Fisher, PH.D., an MIT trained neuroscientist, those neural connections are dynamic and lifestyle choices make a huge difference. This includes the right nutrients, and regular physical and mental exercise.

4. Consider this: There are 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the brain with the equivalent of three full soda cans of blood flowing through them every minute. Supporting the circulation of blood in the brain will help preserve synapses between neurons.

As you can see, circulation is extremely important! You don’t have to accept the fact that with age comes significant mental decline. With Mind Works, you’re increasing circulation and keeping the switchboard running smoothly!
