Tips to Stay Healthy This Season

Winter: a beautiful season filled with white fluffy snow, blissful holidays, and tons of germs. Subzero temps and lack of sun combine to create a recipe for illness. To make matters worse, exercise takes a back seat because our warm, cozy bed is much more tempting than a cold, stationary bike. Learn how to beat the winter blues this season by staying healthy.

 

Wash up!

Part of the reason people are so susceptible to illness in the winter is because the cold weather forces us to stay within close quarters, breathing in germs from those around us. It’s extremely important to wash your hands whenever you get the chance! Scrub them before you eat or prepare food, and after going to the bathroom.

 

Change your toothbrush!

It’s a good idea to routinely change your toothbrush a couple times a year. You should be very mindful of changing it after you’ve gotten over a cold or infection. The last thing you want is to recover, only to fall back into your coughing, sneezing, and aching ways.

 

Get to shoveling!

Need some exercise? Shovel your driveway! Need more? Shovel your neighbor’s driveway! Shoveling snow for one hour burns a whopping 400 calories. Sometimes it’s hard to make it to the gym or go for a run on those frigid days; this can make up for that. If you have to clear your walkway anyways, you might as well try to burn off a couple of those warm chocolate chip cookies you’ve been munching on!

 

Stay hydrated!

It’s easy to tell when we’re craving water in the summer because the sun and heat demand we drink more. The cold air in the winter, however, makes it difficult to recognize the signs of dehydration. Water helps keep us healthy by flushing toxins out of our system and maintaining productive organs. Be sure to get your daily suggested amount of water so you can take on the day.

 

Moisturize!

For healthy skin, moisturize after you take a shower. If you have a humidifier in your house, be sure to set the level between 40-50%.

 

Flu Shots!

This season’s flu is expected to be extremely harmful to the respiratory system. Remember to get your flu shot! This is especially important for expecting mothers, new moms, young kids, and the elderly. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
