Winter Wellness Tips

Winter is here. With predictions of bitter cold and lots of snow, the struggle to stay healthy is even more important. We found an article from My Southern Health with tips on how to stay healthy during the winter cold & flu season:
– Wash Your Hands! It may seem obvious, but wash your hands before eating/handling food, after using the restroom, & especially after being out in public.

– Lower Your Stress. With the holiday season coinciding with cold & flu season, stress can reduce your body’s ability to fight infection. Take a break when you feel stressed, listen to some soothing music or meditate. Be sure to get plenty of sleep as well.

– Dress in Layers. Layering helps to keep you warm but also allows you to shed layers as the temperatures rise to avoid dehydration or heat stroke.

– Don’t Smoke. Smokers have a greater health risk because of tobacco use, & smoking can cause additional issues when dealing with colds & winter respiratory infections.

– Remain Active. Many people slow down during the winter because of the cold & snow outside. Take a stroll around a big box store, pop in an exercise DVD, do something to keep you active.
Be sure to check out the full article at My Southern Health for more tips on keeping healthy & safe during the winter months.
