Winter Wisdom: Keeping the Plague Away

It’s that time of year where Jack Frost just seems to not want to leave us alone, and that means the sniffles and coughing are bound to start following soon enough. While a little cold might not be detrimental to your health, here are some tricks to keeping that bug away so you can enjoy a fun-filled winter wonderland!

1. Take Notes From Mrs. Claus

No one wants a skinny Santa! Likewise, make sure you’re eating right this winter. Getting the right nutrients is important, and while eating a salad is great to stay healthy, make sure you’re getting your protein and eating some warm foods like soup! The healthier you eat, the stronger your body and immune system will be when it comes to fitting off the cold.

2. Kris Kringle Knew a Thing or Two

The man himself sure knew how to make a statement with his wardrobe! And while we may not all feel like we’re able to rock a head-to-toe red velvet pantsuit, Kris Kringle knew that dressing to brace the cold was the only way to get through all those blizzards! Make sure you wear lots of layers and keep warm! Protecting your head, chest, hands, and feet are key points in your body to prevent you from getting sick; so don’t cut back when it comes to gloves and a hat!

3. We Can’t All be Frosty

As much fun as Frosty looked like he was having when he was running all about town in the snow, we can’t all live in the cold! Make sure you stay in once in a while, and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa while you’re at it! Being outdoors too much during the cold weather can really wear down your body.

While these tips seem simple, make sure to keep them in mind this winter! Staying safe and healthy really allows you to enjoy the holiday season; and while Rudolph looks adorable with his red nose, it might be better if we just leave that to him!
