Five tips to survive the cold and flu season

The cold and flu season has arrived. Every year, we are faced with a new and more dangerous strain of the flu. It’s great to have a day off from work and binge-watch your favorite shows, but not when you also get a fever, a painful cough, and a stuffed-up nose. Here are some tips on how to survive the cold and flu season.

Flu shots are available.

Every year, a variation of the three basic types causes problems. Each year, the flu vaccine is updated to protect us against the strain that experts predict will be most prevalent. The flu vaccine can cause minor symptoms or discomfort the day following the shot, but it will still protect you against the full-blown strain.

Hands should be washed often.

Hand washing helps to keep germs at bay. Scrub with soap for at least 20 seconds. Rub like a surgeon before surgery. Do not forget to scrub between your fingers, the back of your hand, and under your fingernails. It would be best if you washed your hands several times per day.

Exercise

Regular exercise keeps your body in top form. It is also good for your immune system and helps you maintain a healthy mentality. Exercise can help you recover faster from colds and flu and will make you feel healthier all year round.

Have you ever thought about washing your hands before?

This is worth repeating. It is the best and only way to avoid germs, especially if your office is large or you use public transport. You cannot control the behavior of others, but you can change your own.

Keep your home clean.

Germs can hide on a variety of surfaces in your home, including countertops, desks, and doorknobs. They may even be hiding on your floor. It is important to clean the things that are used most often daily, and the floors should be cleaned weekly.

Consider using a professional¬†cleaning service, such as Chem-Dry, before and after flu season starts. Chem-Dry‘s Hot coating extract¬†has been shown to remove 98% of non-living allergens from carpets.
