Tips On Surviving A Winter Cold

Tips To Avoid Colds And Flu This Winter
Nobody likes it when the season starts to change, especially if you are one of the unlucky ones who catches a cold/flu. I hate getting a cold, I would much prefer to have a headache than a runny nose and bad cough. Over the past two months I have really been trying my best to avoid getting poorly this season. Today I wanted to share some tips that could help decrease your chances of getting poorly this season.

1. Keep Hydrated: I know its the tip everyone recommends, but drinking a lot of water everyday can have such an impact on how you feel throughout the day. If I don't drink enough water I feel sluggish and sometimes I get a headache. Keeping hydrated definitely decreases your chances of getting poorly.

2. Lots of Vitamin C: I read somewhere that upping your vitamin intake can really help your chances of not getting a cold. Some say taking a vitamin C tablet everyday works and others don't, for me personally I found it's definitely decreased my chances of getting unwell. So it is worth giving it a try!

3. Plenty of Rest: Another tip that everyone recommends is getting plenty of rest and it really does work. Having 8 hours sleep every night better your chances of fighting off any bugs that you may get if you had slept less. I find I get a better nights sleep if I pop my sleeping mask on from Ooloom*.

4. Eat Properly: We all like to indulge on the odd takeaway or chocolate cake but, if you eat 3 proper meals a day with lots of greens. Getting lots of nutrients definitely helps with avoiding colds.

5. Drink Immune Tea: Not sure if it works, but drinking immune herbal teas has definitely helped me not get unwell as often. These teas are amazing they are packed with lots of vitamins and are a great drink to wind down with in the evening.

6. Be Hygienic: Another kinda obvious one but keeping yourself clean and carrying around hand sanitiser is definitely a must for me. With everyone run down with a cold this time of year it's important to try and fight off any nasty germs.

  5. Love this post! I'm normally lucky enough to escape the sickness this time of year (fingers crossed). I get it around February/March. I think just resting is one of the hardest ones, at least for me. I will definitely refer back to this when I'm under the weather. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Thank you for the information you shared. It's very useful. In my country there is very cold winters and snowfall so I rarely go out in winter. I choose at home to work and take care of my website: http://thuocbothan.com

  10. Your blogs are very amazing. The handheld or portable wind meters should be very accurate reporting. It helps better weather forecasting.
