Winter is fast approaching and common cold germs are hanging around. With many holiday festivities and gatherings, don’t get stuck at home battling a stuffy nose or sore throat. There are a number of things you can do to stay as healthy as possible. Here are three super easy tips to remember that will keep you on your feet and prevent the spreading of cold symptoms to others:
Keep your hands away from your face – it’s no secret that your hands can have lots of bacteria on them from touching car doors, door handles and other people and touching your face is an easy way to get sick. Wash your hands as often as you can to keep the germs at bay. Also, keep some hand sanitizer with you in a pinch!
Drink a lot of water – keeping your body hydrated is good for your health and keeping your immune system healthy!
Up your Vitamin C intake – Vitamin C is an immune system booster and will aid you in battling many common cold symptoms. Supplements are great, but citrus fruits (like oranges and grapes) and leafy green vegetables (cabbage, broccoli and Brussel sprouts) are excellent sources of the vitamin.
