Humidifier – the need of the hour!

Accompanying the lovely, chilly winter breeze, this weather also brought dreadful illnesses that unnecessary tagged along. How from being my favourite season, winters have started to dread me.

The air starts to dry, sucking the moisture from our skins and drying the mucus in our nasal passages. Due to this, we suffer from stuffy/blocked noses. Kids have a harder time with the same because what’s worse is that they can’t even blow the snot out, to relieve themselves. The air needs to moisten to relieve these conditions.

Recently my little one has picked up the airborne flu and before it worsens i have this Chicco Respira Sano humidifier out and running in the room at nights. It has been – tremendous help, stopping the congestion from worsening. It is far more easy to use than the regular steamer that is as unsafe as it is short lived. What’s most amazing is that it has a little space to add your essential oils/diffusers which fume along with the steam for added benefits.

I personally love it for myself too. It stops my skin from getting flaky and the lips from getting chapped. I see visible benefits of using this.

There are many other brands available in the market like honeywell and vicks, but this is what suited me best because it is cost effective, is from a decent brand, and has the facility of using essential oils. Also I love it because it has the auto shut down feature when the water inside the tank is consumed. I totally recommend this humidifier and call it a must use especially if you use a heater in your room.

This humidifier costed me ₹4490 from FirstCry.com.

Has anyone of you used it for your babies? What are your views about it?

Mornings demand super foods!

One of those mornings when you intend to start the day with something that kick shots your energy levels.

A good helping of assorted fruits topped with nuts, dried fruit + my new obsession ‘chia seeds’. These tiny seeds are power packed with tremendous nutrients and fibre.We’ve heard about their weight loss benefits and i have experienced they do great justice to the claims. An improved texture in my skin and hair + promoting my post baby weight loss has made me a great fan.

Even add them to your glass of fresh juice or soups, i love how they can multi perform.

Have you tried these yet? Or any other superfoods you swear by?
