You’re more likely to get the flu during colder months, but by following these simple tips to fight germs, you can boost your odds for emerging from the season unscathed.
Our body is made up of mostly water, and when we’re dehydrated, it’s just an extra stress on our system. Dryness—like a scratchy throat—decreases your immunity barriers and opens the door to infection. Drinking plenty of water is crucial to staying healthy.
Remember that vitamins aren’t replacements.
Even a large vitamin C tablet can’t guarantee that you’re better protected against every nasty bug that floats around. It’s far better to eat a balanced diet with a lot of fruits and vegetables. You want your body to be in its maximum condition to fight off illness.
Don’t use cold weather, hectic holiday shopping or a stacked schedule of festive soirees as an excuse to skip your workout. Getting plenty of exercise actually reduces the stress hormone cortisol and improves your immune system. SEE THE REST HERE!
