5 Ways To Avoid Getting Sick During The Cold Season

During the cold season/ holidays things can get pretty crazy pretty fast from coordinating family gatherings, to buying everyone presents, cooking delicious food, endless trips to the store,...etc. whatever it may be and however you spend your time during the cold season/ holidays (even if you aren’t the traditional type) the streets and stores can get crowded, hectic and not to mention snowy! The last thing you would want is to be sick on top of all of that so we got your back, here are 5 ways to avoid getting sick during the cold season.


Eat Vegetables

No brainer here, eat your veggies! They are extremely good for you since they are packed with the nutrients and minerals that your body needs. To be more specific, aim for darky leafy greens as they are known to help boost your immune system. Not only eat your veggies but have well rounded meals as you would normally.


Exercise

When some people tend to put exercising on pause during the cold season, this is the most important time to continue your regular exercise routine! Sure, it’s cold outside but all you have to do is prepare ahead of time. Depending where you live, if it’s snowing outside, layer up with warm clothes on top of your workout clothes, head out the door a few minutes early to wipe the snow off your car, shovel, and drive slow to the gym. If you prefer to stay home, that's okay too! You can do a total body workout at home. No excuses! 


Continuing your exercise routine helps reduce stress, accelerate white blood cells circulation, helps keep inflammation down and not to mention makes you feel amazing after a good workout. All of this helps you avoid getting sick during the cold season!


No Stress

Like we mention above that exercise helps reduce stress, keeping our stress levels down helps you avoid getting sick. That’s right being stressed out literally causes you to get sick! How does this happen? The more your stressed, the more you release a hormone called Cortisol and if you are stressed all the time, the effectiveness of this hormone reduces therefore not being effective to help keep up with your immune system which leads to getting sick. We want to keep our cortisol levels low so practice some box breathing and Keep Calm, and Keep More Calm.


Wash Your Hands

If you start to count all the objects we touch in one day, it's a lot! Touching all the doorknobs entering the grocery store, the food, your phone, the car steering wheel, your house door knob, your face, your phone again...anyways you get the picture! Germs are everywhere and with millions and millions of people on earth, it can spread real fast. Hand sanitizers are a great alternative to kill the germs when you're out and about but the germs are still on your hands so when you get home be sure to wash your hands to avoid catching a nasty germ.


Vitamin D

The most important vitamin of all when it comes to keeping our immune system healthy is Vitamin D3. Statics show that over a billion people worldwide are deficient in or insufficient in Vitamin D. That’s a whole lotta people! This deficiency comes from not being exposed enough to the sun or not consuming it in our daily diet. Not getting enough sun exposure however can get tricky because the sun is not necessarily our friend either and can be damaging in a lot of other ways to our bodies. So that may leave us to consuming Vitamin D as the best option however we might not be always 100% on top of that either but it would be considered the best way to make sure we get enough Vitamin D. Another way is supplementing Vitamin D with dietary supplements like our 2 in 1 Support K2+D3. We made it with BioPerine to make sure you get the best absorption of the Vitamin K2 and D3 nutrients that both may help boost your immune system!



So what are 5 ways to avoid getting sick during the cold season? Eat your veggies, continue working out, no stress -get rid of anxiety, wash your hands, and get your Vitamin D!
