Can you feel it? The crispness in the air, the daylight slowly getting shorter… As we quickly approach Fall, we also quickly approach flu & cold season! Here are some tips to keep you healthy through this season.
Get That Vitamin D
Now with the lack of sunshine, you will need to replace that source of Vitamin D with another. There are an array of supplements you can take to boost your immune system with Vitamin D. Talk to your healthcare provider today and see what they recommend for you.
Boost that Immune System
One of the best things you can do to prevent illness, WASH YOUR HANDS. Drink lots of water, add lemon, ginger and cayenne for a great boost. Take your vitamins and if you find your immune system is still struggling to keep up, talk with your provider to see what may be the culprit.
Buy In-Season Food
Don’t count on purchasing your food from other countries for the sake of eating whatever you want. The fresher your produce , the more nutrients it has. Some of these fall foods may include squash, pumpkin, kale, beets, broccoli, cabbage and more. Take advantage of the final weeks of the local Farmer’s Markets and get the best and freshest produce supplied by local farmers.
Just because it’s cold and dark for the majority of the season doesn’t mean that you should sit around and do nothing all day! Daily workouts boost your immune system as well. Now is the perfect time to sign up for a gym membership or hop on that old treadmill you’ve got sitting in your garage.
Wear Layers To Stay Warm
Layer up! Break out those cute boots, nice fuzzy sweaters and that scarf that grandma knitted you. Not only will you stay warm, grandma will be really happy to see you wearing it too!
