Strategies for Better Winter Health

• Eat a healthy diet, including a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. This will provide you with the necessary vitamins and minerals to maintain a robust immune system.

• Get at least eight hours of sleep each night. Sleep deprivation suppresses the immune system the same way stress does, making it more likely that you’ll get sick.

• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Flu viruses spread mainly from person to person through droplets made when people with the flu cough, sneeze, or talk. The cashier who hands you change, the server who hands you a cup of coffee, or any of the other people you encounter in your daily life can spread the flu to you. You don’t even have to encounter a sick person; the virus can live on surfaces such as doorknobs for hours.

• If you get sick, stay home and take care of yourself. Avoid contact with people who are sick as well.

• Avoid places where people live in close contact. College dormitories, military barracks, hospitals, and other such places are fertile breeding grounds for viruses. If possible, avoid air travel and cruise ships during flu season.

• Carry hand wipes to sanitize toilet seats and door handles.
