The cooler months are here and it is only going to get colder. (Sorry for being such a downer, but it's true). When the seasons change people get sick, don't be one of them! Here are a few tips to help you stay healthy. I promise I won't get too Science-y on you guys.
1) Go to sleep- Your body has to be charged to the max if you want it to fight against any sickness or even allergies for that matter.
2) Stay warm- I know people debate this one a ton. Some people claim that being cold does not make it sick. But like not having enough sleep, you aren't setting yourself up for a fair fight against a sickness. Your body is a bit more stressed out trying to keep you warm instead of putting all of its effort into fighting off the sick!
3) Drink more fluids- Although your body is capable of flushing itself out it can always use a bit of help.
4) Eat healthy- What can I say? You should try to be healthy anyway. Try to give your body an extra boost in vitamins: A, B, C and E, whether in supplement or food form. My personal favorites are green tea and grapefruit. If people around you are sick I suggest stocking up on vitamins.
These tips can also help you fight off sickness quicker once you are already sick.
