With winter and the holiday season fast approaching, the last thing that you have time for is getting sick. Here are a few tips on avoiding getting sick this season.
Beware the Flu: If you haven’t gotten the flu shot yet, you should at least know how prevalent the flu is in your area. Your weather app can let you know when the flu hits in your area and can even give you an estimate of the disease prevalence near you.
Avoid Getting Caught Off Guard: Whether it is getting caught in the rain without an umbrella, or in the cold without a jacket, being unprepared for the weather can increase your chances of getting sick. A quick look at your weather radar can help you avoid unwanted surprises and ensure that you stay warm and dry. Of course, you also want to have the most accurate weather app possible, so peruse reviews carefully before you download.
Eat Your Vitamins: A hectic schedule can mean less healthy meals. However, taking time to get your servings of fruit and vegetables can not only help you avoid getting sick, but can also boost your energy during the holiday rush. Though nothing beats getting your nutrients from fresh fruit and vegetables, if you find yourself in a pinch, you can find a good multivitamin.
Get Your Sleep: A storm warning on your weather radar is the perfect time for a catnap, but you should also commit to getting a good amount of sleep every day. Studies have shown that lack of sleep will weaken your immune system, so make sleep a priority before you get sick.
Getting sick is no joke. Even if your life seems to be busier and busier, it’s important to remember that taking care of your health is always worth the effort.
