Flu season can get the best of us. Fortunately, there are ways to combat the winter blues even amidst the colder days ahead.
The immune system plays a crucial role in fighting the flu, and studies have shown that exercise boosts your immune system. Whether it’s going for an outdoor walk by the Coal Harbour Seawall, or taking a yoga class at The Nordic Spa, these activities not only boosts your mood but promotes a moderate aerobic activity to keep you fit and healthy.
One-hour yoga classes at The Nordic Spa are available Thursdays at 7:00 am and Saturdays at 9:00 am and 11:00am.
Good nutrition is vital to help combat the virus. Protein, for example—lean meat, fish, poultry, nuts and seeds, aids in building strength to keep your body strong. A lab study has even suggested that chicken soup has properties that eases flu symptoms!
At The Nordic Spa, our hearty version of chicken soup is our Slow Cooked Chicken Bone broth—a nutrient-rich, aromatic mug of hot chicken bone broth. Other soul-reviving dishes in the menu include our Vine Ripened Tomato Soup, Toasted Avocado Sandwich, Thai Chicken Coconut Curry and much more.
