Staying Healthy During This Cold and Flu Season
Looking for ways to stay healthy this cold and flu season? Try these five simple strategies to avoid unwanted illness.
Wash Your Hands + Use Sanitizer
Wash, rinse and repeat! Washing your hands is the most effective way to reduce the spread of germs. Make sure to wash your hands for 20 seconds or more, scrubbing with soap and rinsing with warm water.
Handwashing should be your first choice, but if you can’t wash, use a sanitizer!
Our Hand Sanitizer Pick: We love everyone™ hand sanitizer spray in coconut + lemon scent. This natural hand sanitizer is cruelty free, paraben free, synthetic fragrance free, gluten free, made with organic ingredients, and scented with essential oils. The best part: it doesn’t dry out your hands!
As always, remember to avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes unless you’ve cleaned your hands beforehand.
Keep Your Surroundings Clean
Take time every day to clean up in your own environment. Whether it’s your house, your workplace or your car, germs can hide where you least expect them, so sanitizing surfaces in your environment can help to reduce exposure.
Nourish Your Body
Your immune system can only put up its best fight when your body is properly nourished. Consume a healthy diet which includes vitamins, minerals, and a healthy blend of fruits and vegetables, protein sources, and whole grains to give your body the best opportunity to stay healthy.
Make sure to keep a water bottle at your side this fall and winter. Cold and flu season comes during the driest months of the year, so your body will thank you for the extra fluids.
Our Tip: Carry a water bottle that’s resealable to avoid picking up pesky germs on mouthpieces or in open containers.
Respect Your Body
Cold and flu season is the perfect time to treat your body the best way possible! Make sure to keep your sleep schedule consistent, try to reduce stress as much as possible, and keep your exercise routine in check. All of these habits promote overall health, and help in prevention as well as recovery during cold and flu season.
Be well. Be vibrant.
