By Virginia Laird

As cold and flu season rapidly approach, there is need to begin thinking about all the things you can do to prevent these illnesses from taking over your home and health. Health and wellness experts advise that there is little that can be done to completely eliminate your chances of catching these awful illnesses. However, there are things you can do to decrease your chances of falling ill, including:

  • Routinely clean your house
  • Make sure to get enough sleep
  • Consider adding Vitamin C to your routine

Routinely Clean Your House

While it may seem to be daunting task, there is research that suggests cleaning your house often can help keep you healthy. Throughout your day, you will come in contact with a variety of people and a host of germs. Inevitably these germs will find their way to the surfaces of your home and office. Health and wellness professionals suggest that cleaning often is one of the many ways to help prevent your family from falling ill. It is advised that you should wipe down these surfaces a couple of times each day.

Make Sure to Get Enough Sleep

Sleep plays a huge role in keeping you healthy. While the body is at rest, it restores energy, repairs damage, and boosts the immune system. It is advised that the average adult should get at least six hours of sleep each night. However, some adults and especially young children require much more than this. Check this chart to see the recommended number of hours for each of your family members.

Consider Adding Vitamin C to Your Routine

Research suggests that adding Vitamin C to your diet can give a boost your immune system. Health and wellness experts suggest this can be done by consuming food high in this vitamin or by taking it as a supplement. Making sure to get plenty of Vitamin C in your diet can be a key factor in keeping you flu-free this season. If you are uncertain which supplement to choose or food to add to your diet, visit with your healthcare provider to get advice on what may be best for you and your family.

Now is the time to invest in antibacterial wipes, load your purse with sanitizer, invest in Vitamin C and start making sleep a priority. You will be glad you did when the flu misses your home.
