With the changing season and temperatures dropping, it is important to prioritize a healthy regimen. The holiday season is a time when we are spending time with our families and friends. In order to preserve this time with loved ones, we need to prepare ourselves for the upcoming cold and flu season. This is especially important for those who have weaker immune systems as they might have complications that could require hospitalization. From home care specialists in Atlanta, Georgia, the following are some recommendations to protect you from the flu.
Steps to a Healthy Flu Season
Social Distance When Appropriate
If you are aware that someone around you is sick, please keep your distance as the situation allows. By minimizing close contact, you can reduce your exposure to the virus. If you catch a cold, consider taking preventative measures to keep others healthy by staying home if possible. Ask a family member or close friend to run errands for you if needed.
Washing your hands is essential throughout the year, but especially during flu season. Additionally, avoid touching your nose, eyes, or mouth after contact with objects and surfaces. If you find yourself needing to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose to reduce the spread of germs.
Take Care of Yourself
During this season, prioritize healthy habits such as getting plenty of sleep, staying physically active, drinking plenty of fluids, and eating healthy. By taking care of your body, you may help your system protect itself from a virus.
Consider the Flu Shot
Getting the influenza vaccine is a protection against the flu that is beneficial for many adults, especially for those 65 and older. For more information regarding the shot, please visit the CDC’s website.
