As Canberra cools down, it’s important to focus on health and wellness. Otherwise you could fall victim to a cold or the flu! Here are three tips.
Noticing the sound of sniffles, coughs and sneezing at home, around the office or on the train each morning? It’s official, winter is here and so are the less-than-pleasant signs of the season, like seasonal colds and the flu.
If you want to stave off these symptoms, a healthy lifestyle is key. Here are three tips from our team.
1. Stay active
During the colder months, many people stray from their usual exercise routine, opting to stay indoors instead. This is not good for your health and fitness.
Instead, stay active – even if it means exercising at home with online resources. To hold yourself accountable, plan your workouts in advance or enlist a friend to be your gym buddy.
2. Wash your hands regularly
Frequent hand-washing is important year-round, but especially during winter when sickness tends to spread. Keep bacteria and viruses off your hands- and out of your mouth and eyes – by making it a habit to wash your hands before and after eating and following a trip to the bathroom.
3. Take your vitamins
When the temperatures drop and the sun becomes more scarce, vitamins C and D are your best friends. Be sure to include these in your daily routine, particularly if you notice you’re catching something or if you haven’t had enough quality time outdoors.
