Preventing Colds This Winter

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Winter is almost upon us and meteorologists are already saying we may be in for some nasty, cold weather.  Be prepared ahead of time and take these precautions to keep yourself as healthy as possible this winter:

  • Dress warmly (even when you feel like you can walk outside without a jacket - don’t)
  • Eat warm foods such as soups and chilis, and drink warm beverages such as hot water with lemon or green tea
  • Maintain a diet rich in nutrition
  • Before you do any winter chores such as shoveling, make sure you do a small warmup
  • Get lots of sleep
  • Wash your hands often
