Here’s how you can stay healthy this cold and flu season.

While cold and flu season is nearly at its end, you still can’t take chances when it comes to your health.  Fortunately, there are some steps that you can take to care for yourself.  Here are some of the things that you should do to stay healthy this cold and flu season.

  • Take Preventative Health Measures

One of the best ways to protect yourself from getting sick is by taking preventative health measures.  For instance, getting the flu vaccine is one of the most effective ways to prepare your body to fight off the flu virus this season.  In addition to getting your flu shot, you can also reduce your risk of catching a cold by eating well and taking immune-boosting supplements.  Finally, making sure that you get enough sleep every night will help your body stay strong enough to fight off anything that comes its way.

  • Practice Good Hygiene

Another way to stay healthy this cold and flu season is by practicing good hygiene.  Keeping yourself and your environment clean will minimize your contact with harmful germs and will decrease your chances of getting sick.  Make sure you wash your hands frequently, especially after touching someone and before eating.  Additionally, you should carry around hand sanitizer to fight germs on the go.  Finally, regularly wiping down your area with anti-bacterial wipes can prevent illness-causing germs from infecting your environment.

  • Care for Yourself

If you do feel yourself coming down with the cold or flu, then don’t try to push through it.  Trying to maintain your busy lifestyle will only make your illness worse.  Instead, take the time you need to heal and really take care of yourself.  Use your sick time at work, cancel personal engagements, and simply rest until you start to feel better.  Not only will this self-care speed up your recovery, but it will also prevent you from spreading your germs to other people.  In this case, caring for yourself benefits others as well as yourself.
