Tips to stay healthy

With the cool change of season, you may be noticing people getting sick with coughs, colds or flu. These simple tips may help you resist getting sick yourself!

1. Drink lots of water.
It might be tempting to sip on hot drinks in colder weather. However drinking plenty of water will keep you hydrated and flush out toxins in your system.

2. Boost your immune system
Make sure you’re eating a good balanced diet, including fruits and vegetables that contain healthy vitamins and minerals.

3. Always eat foods that are in season
Seasonal foods have higher nutritional content than out of season or unripe fruits and vegetables.

4. Rest
Around 8 hours sleep per night is pretty good to rest your immune system. You will feel recharged and will more effectively handle stress.

5. Wear layers
This is about avoiding sudden changes to your body temperature. You can add or remove layers to suit your environment, which means your body can easier regulate its temperature.

6. Commit to exercise
Keep yourself strong and healthy by doing regular exercise. Don’t let the change of weather discourage you – consider indoors and outdoors activities depending on the weather.
