We are in the midst of cold and flu season, while battling a pandemic. It’s more important now than ever to stay healthy. Here are a few things you can do, at no cost, to promote wellness this winter season!
Keep your hands clean. While hand sanitizer is effective, washing your hands is even better. Practicing good hand hygiene with simple soap and water can help keep you from transporting germs from an infected surface to your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Exercise regularly. Prime your immune system to fight disease by keeping your body active. Take regular strolls around the neighborhood, visit your local state park, or try out cross-country skiing! Here is a list of more exercises you can do from the comfort of your home.
Eat healthy foods. In order to build your immune system, it is important to follow a nutrient-rich diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Avoiding takeout is not just good for your waistline…it is good for your wallet! Read our recent blog post, “Low-Cost & Healthy Dinner Ideas” for some helpful tips in the kitchen.
Don’t skip doctor visits. Whether you show up in person or visit via video call, it is necessary to check in periodically with your doctor.
