by: Jeric Danao

One of the worst things that could happen while working or going to school is getting sick. Getting sick would mean missing important tasks due to not being able to go to work or school.

Protein is one of the most important nutrients you can get from your food. Having more protein in your body strengthens your immune system. This means that having your daily protein fix would make sure that you have less chances of getting sick. Protein-rich foods include eggs, fish, dairy products, and red meat.

2. Drink some Tea

Sometimes, the best way to relax and relieve your body is by drinking a hot cup of tea. There are many different kinds of tea you can choose from, but the ones that can help you prevent colds and flu is black, green, lemon, and honey tea. Drinking tea helps stimulate the nose, and helps with your breathing, while thinning out your mucus.

3. Juice up

Other than getting a hot cup of tea, another healthy way is by drinking fresh fruit juices. Juices, especially from fruits that contain citrus, are great sources of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your body’s immune system, which prevents your body from getting unwanted illnesses. There is a vast selection of juices to choose from, these include oranges, lemons, kale, apple, broccoli, cucumber, carrot, coconut, and much more.

4. Wash up (your hands)

Sometimes, the simplest way to prevent illness is one of the best ways. Routinely washing your hands prevents you from contracting any disease causing germs from the very beginning. Washing your hands with anti-bacteria soap makes sure that you are clean and safe from contracting anything unwanted.

5. Get some Sun

Going out and getting some sun rays are not only a great way to get warmth and breathe fresh air, but can also prevent you from getting colds and flu. Getting some sunlight means getting some vitamin D, which helps in skin health and makes your immune system stronger. The best time to get some sun is during the very early hours of the morning, from 5-9am.

Key Takeaway

Getting sick is difficult, and robs you of important time where you can be productive and active. By doing these things listed above, you can be guaranteed that you are protected from illnesses like colds and flu. While medicine and going to a trusted health facility is the best way to treat illnesses, it won’t hurt to do a little self-care that would keep you away from the doctor.
