As spring approaches, that often means you’ll feel a seasonal sickness fall over you. Continue reading for tips and information on how to avoid getting sick as the weather changes.
What Are the Common Symptoms?
The first step in avoiding seasonal sickness is knowing which symptoms to look for. When you recognize these symptoms, you can take action earlier to help you recover more quickly. By recognizing whether you have allergies, asthma, or a cold, you'll also know how to treat it appropriately.
Usually, allergies include a runny nose, itchy eyes, a stuffy nose, and watery eyes. You can typically resolve them by taking an allergy pill daily or as needed.
Spring allergies can trigger asthma. So, if you take an allergy pill and still feel shortness of breath, wheezing, or coughing, you may have asthma. If you believe you do, it's best to visit the doctor for an official diagnosis. They'll also provide a prescription for medicine if you do have asthma.
Colds can look similar to allergies, as some symptoms are close. You can tell you have a seasonal cold if the symptoms last for a week, yellow or green mucus, a fever is present, and those around you are getting sick (allergies are not contagious).
How to Prevent Getting Sick
Washing your hands is a great way to avoid getting sick in the spring. If you touch surfaces that someone has sneezed on, then touch your face, you can easily get a cold. By washing your hands regularly, you get rid of the germs on your hands.
When you regularly exercise, you’re keeping your body healthy. By keeping your body healthy, you’re also ensuring your immune system is working well. Try to get to the gym at least 3x per week.
Nutrient-rich foods are an excellent way to keep your immune system up. Ensure you include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet, especially during spring.
You can also eat healthier by using less oil in your recipes, which is easy when cooking with an Air Fryer. Or, consider adding more smoothies into your diet and blending them with a Compact Blender for easy portability.
Maintain a Good Sleep Routine
Sleeping at least seven hours per night is a great way to prevent illness. If you sleep fewer than seven hours, your immune system is taking a hit.
Take Your Vitamins
Taking a daily multivitamin is another great way to boost your immune system. Select one that works with your lifestyle and take it with breakfast each morning.
Keep Your House Clean
Wiping down surfaces in your house can also help you avoid bad bacteria that may cause a seasonal cold. Don’t forget to disinfect your dishes by running them through a dishwasher, like this Countertop Dishwasher, to help clean the germs off your plates, cups, and utensils.
Implement the above tips to help you maintain your health and avoid getting sick in the springtime.
