The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and flu season is well on its way. But you've got work to do, kids to take to school, and events to attend. Avoid the flu this season with these precautionary tips:
1. Get your flu shot
While it may seem simple, it is your best chance of skipping the flu this season. There are several alternatives to a shot, so ask your doctor if you aren't the biggest fan of needles.
2. Wash your hands consistently
More likely than not, the people around you will be carrying germs that can cause you to get the flu. Try to avoid touching common public areas and then directly touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Wash your hands with warm water and soap or use hand sanitizer.
3. Eat a well-balanced diet
The nutrients from the food you eat will help you keep your immune system active and fight off germs that you just can't avoid.
4. Exercise 4 times a week
Just because the weather is getting colder, doesn't mean you should stop exercising. Now more than ever, your body needs to maintain strength to build a highly functioning immune system. Keep taking EnduraQ to ensure your muscles have support while recovering.
5. Sleep 7-9 hours a night
Wearing yourself out isn't going to do you any good, so get enough rest to make sure your body has the energy to fight off the flu.
This combination of tips should get you through the flu season without so much as a single sneeze. For more tips on how to keep up your overall health, check out our other blogs.
