Y'all. I have been sick for like all of 2018. I NEVER get sick. I should see a DR. but I am very stubborn. I felt better Friday but it all creeped back up on me today. I've been laying pretty low by design. I got sick when I went back to Houston and stopped taking all my vitamins! I spent a little bit of time cleaning out my stuff in storage and I'm pretty sure I have some sort of respiratory infection. With that being said, I missed all my vitamins and wanted to share what kept we well all 2017! I don't think I wouldn't have found more homeopathic forms of wellness without moving here, so I wanted to share!

I'm kind of obsessed with collagen peptides. I linked a ton below because they make soooo many. I currently have the normal no flavor can of collagen peptides from Vital Proteins. It's good for hair, skin and nails, improves your digestion and is good for joint health. You can put it in any cold or hot drink but I prefer it in hot tea or hot chocolate. It has no taste or real texture so it blends pretty seamless into anything. After I finish this tub I want to try the Match Collagen! They also offer many beauty waters that sounds great. 
Beyond the collagen peptides olly vitamins have been a good way to make sure I actually take vitamins. Right now vitamins are buy one get one 1/2 off so stock up! The ladies multi is a good way to make sure I take a muti vitamin. I like how these are gummy vitamins. I have HUGE other multi vitamins but since they are large pills that must be taken with food, I sadly never take them. This ladies multivitamin has vitamins A, C, D, E Folic acid and biotin. I started taking Olly vitamins after trying out the "goodbye stress" ones. I'm not sure if it's a mind thing, but I feel better when I take them. Gaba and L-theanine are supposed to be calming. I like it and definitely pop a few during the workday.
Last but not least vitamin C has been a must in my pantry. I do take this in conjunction with my probiotic/zinc pills that I talked about here.  The store brand was the cheapest option and came with almost double the vitamins. I wasn't looking for a fancy blend here so it worked for me.

In getting over my cold/whatever it is I have, theraflu has really been my go to. I love the night time tea mix and I sleep doing aromatherapy. Aromatherapy deserves its own post, but I have been doing a tea tree + peppermint + eucalyptus mix to help clear my sinus at night.

Let me know if you want to hear about what essential oils I love! It is something I am just now getting into but definitely helps me! Happy Flu SZN.
