Five Things You Can Do to Prevent a Cold

It’s cold and flu season again. Every year when the cold weather takes over, and people spend most of their time inside together, the germs run rampant. The cold and flu seem to spread like wildfire through schools, work places and families. There is no way to keep from getting every little bug that floats around, but there are a few things you can do give yourself an advantage.

Wash your hands regularly

 
 

Everything you touch is covered in germs. The best way to keep those germs from getting in your body is to wash your hands.

Sneeze or cough into your elbow, not your hand

 
 

If you sneeze or cough into your hand and then touch something, your germs are all over whatever you touch. To keep your germs from spreading, keep your germs off your hands.

Keep stress to a minimum

 
 

Keeping your stress to a minimum and finding a way to relax for even 30 minutes a day helps to boost your immune system.

Don’t smoke

 
 

Smokers are more prone to getting colds and get them more severely too. Smoking suppresses the immune system, and allows colds to really wreak some havoc.

Exercise regularly

 
 

Exercise helps to boost the body’s natural virus killing skills thanks to the sweat from increased body temperature and increased oxygen transfer in the blood stream.
