I knew it would be potentially stressful at this time leading up to a big adventure. Nothing worse than rushing around to get away on hoilday then getting sick when you stop. Been there, done that.
My biggest thing is that I get so excited and my mind goes crazy at night thinking of booking numbers and which tee-shirt I should pack, etc, then I am tired and can get run down…
So when there is anyone sick around me or I feel slightly under the weather at all I take echinacea. This is wonderful stuff. I get ours at The Herb Farm which is a lovely 30 minute walk away so doubly good for me. –
Then I try to be taking a super food of some sort. Especially a change of season, big things happening etc….So I am having bee pollen. This is just in little granules and I sprinkle on or mix it in with my breakfast. This is amazing stuff too. I certainly feel as though I am taking some energy enhancing drug. It makes me feel as though I could do anything. leap buildings with a single bound, lift cars, take off travelling with my kids…..
I like the idea of taking one superfood at a time, having a break, trying another…but exceptional circumstances call for upping the energy levels so I am having spirulina everyday too! (in a smoothie)
I am also doing a herbal body cleanse. (Is this sending my body mixed messages??)
I have some anti germ oil – a blend of essential oils from The Herb Farm, which smell divine. This is good for breathing in on planes to counteract all the germs in the re-used air.
The latest advice for jet lag is to take massive doses of Vit C so I have two large jars of that for us to munch on during our flight.
Deep breathing. Very good. Recommended.
Affirmations like – I will handle it.
All is well.
It is all happening perfectly
I am not usually so pre-emptive. But I feel I need to take enough to keep me going for a couple of months, all those Roman ruins to see….
And I figure it is a kind of insurance for a solid month of kebab and baklava eating….
