Cold and flu season is upon us, which means we are all more likely to experience colds, respiratory infections, sinusitis, and other unpleasant conditions. Keeping your immune system strong during this time help you to stay healthy and bounce back quickly if you become sick. Read on to learn our top tips.
The Importance of Nutrition
Eating a clean and healthy diet is one of the easiest ways to boost your immune system. Enjoy the citrus fruits that are in season this time of year for a natural dose of Vitamin C, or enjoy a variety of other healthy ingredients in a hearty and warming bowl of vegetable soup. It’s also important to remember to stay hydrated during the winter, which can be a challenge in the colder months. Being hydrated will help your body to remove toxins so your immune system can stay strong.
Keep Germs at Bay
Eliminating germs is also crucial during cold and flu season. While we all know the importance of regular hand washing, there are a few less obvious germ-fighting tips we would like to share. Make sure you are regularly cleaning your technology, as phones and laptops can be breeding grounds for cold-causing germs. It’s also important to wash your winter gear. Gloves and scarves go everywhere with us in the chilly months, but few of us think to regularly clean these items!
Prioritize Your Health
Visiting your doctor in the winter is a great way to keep up with your health. If you have a chronic illness, regular medical care is especially important. The winter is a great time for patients with health conditions to assess their needs. If your condition is not being managed well using your regular medications, a clinical trial can offer you a new solution.
