Kicking Colds in The Colder Season

Maintain your health through the winter weather!

The colder weather can impact more than our commute to work: it can impact our immune systems to our detriment. During the last couple of months of the year, you’ll find more people are sneezing, coughing, and coming down with the flu.

So that you avoid coming down with the winter blues over the festive season, utilize these tips:

  • Catch up on zzz’s: Never underestimate the importance of a good night’s sleep! Lack of sleep can cause you turn to sugary snacks and fatty foods for comfort and for instant energy. This can ultimately lead to weight gain.
  • Wash your hands regularly: This prevents the spread of infectious diseases, including the common cold. Wash your hands after coming into contact with those with a drippy nose and staphylococcus symptoms.
  • Drink plenty of water: and eat enough fruits and vegetables! Keep a check on your diet over the period known for overindulging. Maintaining proper nutrients is key in staving off sickness!
  • Keep on with exercise: Even though the nights are drawing in and running the dark is less than tempting, exercise can improve your immune system which can battle colds and flu!
  • Know when to pay the doctor a visit: Typically, going to the doctor for a common cold is unnecessary. While colds can be prevented, treatments are minimal. Rest up, drink water, and allow your body time to fight the virus! Should you face ongoing symptoms or a high fever, schedule an appointment pronto!
