Winter is near! And with the change of seasons comes the risk of catching a cold or the flu. You’ve probably heard that getting vaccinated, making healthy food choices and washing your hands helps to prevent spreading these little bugs, but here are a few other ways you may have not considered!
- Bundle up: Colder temperatures can actually weaken your immune system and make you more susceptible to getting sick.
- Get some sun: Did you know that vitamin D can play a huge role in the health of your immune system? That’s right! How’s that for shedding some light on the subject?!
- Drink hot tea: You know those little hairs in your nose? Well those are called cilia, which help protect you from germs. Sipping on a cup or two of tea each day can keep those little hairs healthy and strong. It’s all about the steam! Plus, tea is packed with antioxidants.
- Stay hydrated: Drinking water throughout the day will help you fight just about any virus by speeding up your body’s processes.
