It is best to prepare your cold and flu survival kit even before your family needs them. Winter season often translates to illnesses in the family. Before you know it, you or your kids will wake up with a sore throat or flu.
You have to be ready for all the coughing, headaches and even fatigue. It’s best to take preventive steps that will help your family avoid serious sickness during this season.
The cold temperature often leaves us more susceptible to health problems. Fortunately, there are numerous ways to prepare your immune system for the cold season. Our ancestors used to spend a lot of time preparing for winter. It’s not a bad idea to plan ahead and find ways to make winter comfortable and easy for you and your family too.
Here are five awesome hacks to stay healthy during the cold season:
Exercise is always a good thing, but it can be quite a challenge to get moving during winter when days seem shorter. While it is indeed tempting to stay in bed, it is best to find a way to stay active. If you think the area around your home is safe, you can go outside and enjoy a leisurely walk. However, if that sounds impossible, just do what you can inside the house. Moving more around can make a huge difference, plus you won’t have to deal with winter weight gain!
Of course, you should eat well at any time of the year, but you should pay special attention to what you eat right before and during winter. This is a time when you need all the help you can get to boost your immune system. As always, include fruits and vegetables to your diet. During winter season, you might want to prepare more soup and hot dishes to help you stay warm. Drinking hot tea throughout the day can help you stay warm too. Don’t forget to stock up on food to make sure you’re prepared in case it’s too difficult to go outside and buy food.
Hand contact is an easy way to spread germs and virus. Something as simple as washing your hands often can help keep your family healthy. Make it a habit, especially for kids, to keep hands clean. Note that it’s better to wash your hands with soap and water than to use hand sanitizers.
Go ahead and check your first aid kit. It’s best to be prepared and have all the necessary medications in case someone gets sick. Stock up on cold and flu remedies. Also, make sure you have your doctor’s and your hospital’s number just in case you encounter an emergency.
Winter time is probably the best time to enjoy a nice, long bath. It will help you stay warm and relaxed. Adding Epsom salt to your regular bath can even make the experience more beneficial for you. It can help detoxify your system and remove impurities that may affect your health.
