If you want to avoid being sick it's important to be proactive. Here are some great tips to strengthen your body’s immune system during the winter months...
Drink plenty of water
Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
Get at least 6-8 hours of sleep each night
Walking, ice skating and sledding are great ways to have fun and get your vitamin D. Talk to your doctor about taking a vitamin supplement if you can’t get outside much during the winter months. It will help your immune system stay strong and boost your mood
Reduce stress. Dedicate at least one night each week to spend with friends and family or teammates. Joining a bowling league is a great way to socialize. Knocking down some pins is a great way to take out any frustration you may have and it gives you something to look forward to during the work week
Make sure your home is winterized so you can avoid cold winter drafts
