11 BEST WAYS TO AVOID THE FLU OR A COLD
GET VACCINATED – In most cases the vaccines alone are enough to avoid flu (but it won’t protect you from getting a cold).
STAY WARM – Your body is weaker when trying to warm itself up. If it is cold outside wear warm clothes.
DON’T TOUCH NOSE OR EYES – Most germs are entering your body through these places.
EAT HEALTHY – Healthy food like fruits and vegetables can improve your immune system.
STOP SMOKING – The smoke from a cigarette irritates your airways and make them more vulnerable to viruses.
AVOID SICK PEOPLE – Or at least don’t let them sneeze or cough on you.
STAY FIT – If your body is fit, than your immune system is stronger.
VITAMINS – Vitamin C and other vitamins may help your body to fight with cold and flu. Buy tablets or fruits, both are effective ways to get your healthy Vitamin C dose (around 500-1000 mg in the flu season). Also eat raw honey, which also contains different types of vitamins.
HYGIENE – Wash your hands as usually as you can, mostly after being in public for longer time.
ZINC– It helps your body to create more white blood cells, which fight viruses.
STAY HYDRATED– Dehydration weakens your body and makes you more vulnerable to diseases.
