Stay away from cold viruses – how to meet the fall

Sep 09, 2012 No Comments by

The autumn is here and most people get exposed to cold viruses, flu viruses and other types of viruses. This includes grown ups as well as kids, and the result is that we have to stay home from work, to recover from a cold or a flu, or to take care of our kids and help them recover. This is natural of course, but it also means we have to deal with more stress when we get back to work, since we’ve missed a few days, filled with meetings, duties, tasks and so on. There’s no way to avoid all viruses, but we can do our best to remain as healthy as possible.

We all have a choice. We can choose to live our lives as usual with plenty of fast food, a hectic schedule and too many duties to handle. If we choose this alternative, it will end up in the bed, with a cold, or even a flu, taking pills to recover.

There is another alternative as well though, a better one. We can choose to live a healthier life, with a healthy diet, enough vitamins and a good level of exercise. How can we do this? It’s actually pretty simple.

  1. Include fruits in the daily life

Instead of eating a sandwich, or some snacks, between the meals, make sure to bring some fruit wherever you go. Take an apple or a banana when you feel hungry or tired. It’s good for your weight, and it’s good for your general health. Squeeze some oranges as well, the orange juice will provide you with plenty of vitamin C and it will make it easier for you to avoid cold viruses

  1. Make sure to get enough sleep

A hectic schedule can result in too little sleep at nights. This isn’t good, and it’s important that you do what you can to get enough sleep. You need at least 6-8 hours sleep every night in order to stay healthy and strong.

  1. Start exercising before you catch a cold

It’s not good to exercise when you’re sick, but it’s good to start exercise when you’re healthy, in order to stay well. Your body gets stronger with help from training, and it’ll be easier for you to remain healthy if you’re in good shape.

It’s impossible to stay away from every virus, but you can do your best to take care of your body. Start living a healthy life today, it’ll help you stay strong and healthy, and you’ll be able to recover quickly from colds and flus.

Health, How To...

About the author

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
