Don't Get Sick in the New Year!
Everyone wants to stay healthy during the holiday season but, with the increase of visitors and out of town trips, this can prove to be a challenge. While getting the flu shot is one of the most important to-dos this season (it's never too late to get one!), there are a few other tactics that can help keep you and your family healthy as we move into 2020.
One of the most common way germs are passed around is through touching objects with germs on them or coming in contact with someone who is sick. This can be managed by washing your hands often and properly! All you have to do is wet your hands, lather with soap for at least 20 seconds, then rinse. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth in-between hand washing to ensure you're sickness free.
2. Drink more water, less caffeine
Not sure you can go a day without coffee? No worries! Switch over to decaf or try a delicious herbal tea.
3. Eat healthy fruits and vegetables
4. Keep up with exercising
Live in a cold area? Travel to the nearest indoor mall to get your steps in.
In between visiting friends and family, it's imperative to give your body enough time to rest. Studies show that not getting enough sleep has negative effects on the immune system and can put you at a higher risk of catching viruses and bacterial infections.
This isn't just another year, it's a brand new decade! Take a stand against cold and flu season and start the new year off on the right foot. Happy New Year!
