How to Stay Healthy: Ways to Avoid Cold
Many people are worried about getting a cold in the winter months. The fear of being sick and not being able to get out of bed for days is enough to make anyone worry. But if you prepare yourself with the appropriate knowledge, there’s no need to worry!
Get a good Medigap carrier. This is important because they will not cover you fully if you come down with a cold, but it’s better than being ill for days.
Get plenty of sleep. Studies have shown that people who get enough restful, uninterrupted sleep during the week are less likely to develop symptoms in comparison with those who don’t.
Drink at least two liters of water per day and also make sure to take your daily vitamins. Eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis. This will make your immune system stronger and more powerful to fight off any invaders. Fruits, vegetables, and plenty of vitamin C are great for boosting your immune system.
Wash your hands often! Being sick can be caused by lack of hygiene more than anything else so it is one thing you should never skip when washing up.
Wear warm clothes and make sure to keep your head and hands covered. Your shoes should be closed-toe and your coats should be water-resistant.
Stay away from people who are sick, don’t go to work if you’re feeling under the weather, and then get plenty of rest in a dark room with no noise or distractions. This will help speed up the recovery process! Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, and wash your hands frequently.
Lastly, take a hot bath with eucalyptus oil in it before bedtime every night (optional). This will help open the respiratory passages making breathing easier when you go to sleep.
