November up until April tends to be the prime time to contract ailments such as the cold and flu. It is important to take the initiative of remaining healthy during this time to avoid person-to-person transmission as much as possible. You should always wash with antibacterial soap for a minimum of 20 seconds both before and after you eat. You should also be sure to disinfect your car’s seat, armrest, and headrest as these areas often harbor germs and bacteria.
- Sleep is essential because it refreshes our immune system. Aim to get between six to eight hours of sleep each night.
- Keep your hands clean but especially before and after eating. Use an antibacterial soap if possible instead of hand sanitizers.
- If you have access to a sauna, using it two to three times per week can help support your immune system and prevent viral illnesses.
“You should be mindful of protecting yourself against germs and supporting your body’s immunity system throughout the year, but especially in the months from November through April.”
