Stay Clear Of Springtime Colds

Tips for fighting the springtime cold

Just because it's springtime that doesn't mean that the influenza season is over-no way! We still have a couple of months to steer clear of colds!  Now there is no foolproof way to protect yourself from all the germs, but these tips may help you fight back.

  • Wash your hands.  We all know that germs are everywhere so make sure you wash your hands regularly during the day with soap and water.  Also, use hand sanitizer to avoid picking up germs from door handles, shopping carts or shaking hands.
  • Eat better. Fresh fruits and vegetables help your immune system.  Salads need to be on the menu at least a couple times a week!  Remember, foods high in sugar will make your immune system weaker.
  • Drink water. Staying hydrated will help flush out all the impurities in the body. When you have mucus buildup, water will help thin out the mucus.  Don't drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks, as they will dehydrate you.
  • Keep stress away. Emotional stress can weaken your immune systems and then you are more likely to catch a cold.
  • Exercise. Daily workouts engage the immune system’s germ-fighting defenses.
  • Steam things up.  If you have mucus build up, then use a humidifier or a cool mist vaporizer.  If you don't have those then just stick your head over a pot of warm water or a hot shower. For longer lasting relief, try Mucinex SE, a 12-hour tablet that relieves chest congestion and thins and loosens mucus.
  • Night Time Tea. Try drinking a cup of tea with honey just before bedtime — warm beverages can help soothe and quiet a cough.Tips for fighting the springtime cold

In the past, I have always used Mucinex! However, right now that I am expecting I am unable to use it. In the future, I will go back to my holy grail Mucinex.

It's hard being sick any time of year, but it stinks when the weather is nice to be stuck inside sick. Prevention is helpful, but it's great to have supplies on hand also.
