Tips To Avoid Getting Sick During Flu and Cold Season

Tips To Avoid Getting Sick During Flu and Cold Season

Instead of getting to the point where you have to ask “how to get rid of a cold”, “what to drink when sick” or “how to help a cold”, the more proactive question is how to prevent colds and flu from arising in the first place. As the weather gets colder, there are so many different ways to stay healthy. With a key focus on water and fluid intake, as well as a few other tricks, try out the following tips to avoid getting sick during flu and cold season.

1. Clean Surfaces

Germs are everywhere, and cold season is an extra crucial time to pay attention to where they can spread. Be prepared with disinfecting wipes in places where cleaning spray, water or paper towels are not readily available—think, the office. When you’re at the gym, make an effort to spray down that communal yoga mat and clean any equipment you place your hands on—most gyms provide cleaning solutions and disinfecting wipes, so take advantage and wipe down the germ-infested surfaces. In addition to cleaning surfaces, wash your hands with warm water and soap whenever you have touched something that someone else has. Taking this extra measure can kill the bacteria before it has a chance to spread.

2. Sip Warm Fluids

From hot tea to a big bowl of chicken noodle soup, drinking warm, water-based fluids is a great way to prevent colds. The warm liquid and steam from hot water can help to stimulate hair follicles in your nose and loosen mucus-lined sinuses to move out germs. You’ll also get the added benefit of anti-oxidants and vitamins in many teas and soups that can help to boost your immunity, which helps to fight off any toxins that may enter the body and trigger sickness.

3. Drink Plenty of Water

Water does wonders to the body, especially when it comes to cold prevention. It regulates the body’s functions and keeps you hydrated to ensure your body systems can work properly. During flu and cold season, aim to drink six to eight glasses a day—more if you’re working out. Water can even work to enable immune responses that are responsible for fighting off viruses and germs that you may encounter. Drinking water also helps eliminate toxins that your kidneys accumulate—so increasing water intake will work to flush out and detoxify the negative waste in your body that could contribute to illness.  

4. Eat Well and Exercise Regularly

Remember the common saying, you are what you eat. Comfort food starts to become more prevalent with colder climate—be aware of how this can affect your body and its immune system. Instead of grabbing that sugar-packed, butter-enriched pie, opt for something with more nutrients. Try to pick foods that offer essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to maintain good health. In addition to eating right, exercising regularly can help to boost energy and strengthen your body to fight off any germs. When you keep your health and wellness in check, your body is better prepared to handle foreign germs that may come its way.
