How to Stay Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

Senior with flu

During winter, it feels like the cold and flu season never goes away. Staying healthy shouldn’t have to feel like a roll of the dice! We want to give you some tips and tricks to help keep you healthy this season.

Wash Your Hands

Making a point to wash your hands frequently during the day is a highly effective habit for keeping you healthy during cold and flu season. Try using your sleeves when you touch any public doorknobs, and actively remind yourself to keep your hands away from your face. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to catch whatever is going around.

Get Plenty of Vitamin C

Whether it’s through taking supplements or through eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, getting enough vitamin C will help to keep your body working at its best. While having a healthy serving of fruits and vegetables is always recommended, increasing the amount of fruit, vegetables, and liquids you consume will help keep you happy and healthy.

Sleep Right

It’s tough to beat that feeling of getting a solid eight hours of sleep. The long list of benefits of getting a full night’s rest sounds like it’s too good to be true, but staying well-rested can help keep your body at full strength to fight off the flu. So tuck yourself in early and catch up on some well-deserved rest!

Exercise Regularly

Staying in the habit of exercising 3 – 5 times a week is always easier said than done. But if you’re in the habit of an active lifestyle, then you’re giving yourself a boost to your health. By keeping your body in better health, your body will have more energy to dedicate to fighting off any illness that comes your way. Strong bodies make for strong anti-bodies!

With the combination of these tips, you’ll be giving yourself the best chance to stay healthy during cold and flu season. Give our team a call today to speak with our staff and learn more about living in our community!
