Show Notes

As we are coming out of the Covid-19 Lockdown, we have become more health conscious. How can we stay healthy? Boost our immune system? Avoid getting sick? Well, the answers are very simple and old-fashioned. You might think your listening to your Grandma when I share these things. However, they work and I will explain why.

Sleep

Get plenty of sleep. Add an extra hour or two if you can. You see, when your body is fighting germs–and that’s why our immune system is here for–it works super hard and needs more sleep. Our body is fighting germs all the time and most of the time our immune system wins! If others are sick around you, inside there is a battle going on to stay healthy. Help the war against flu germs by getting plenty of rest.

Nutrition & Water

Protein, carbohydrates, and fats

Minerals and vitamins

Water

Fruits & Vegetables

Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Full of antioxidants and nutrients, these super foods nourish our immune system and give them the stamina and tools to fight germs so we don’t get sick.

Stay Dry

Wear snugly water-resistant coats in the winter, especially if it’s raining or snowing. You see germs thrive in warm moist places. You might get wet outside and come into a warm house where now the moisture is warm–perfect for germs to reproduce. If you get wet, change clothes or better yet, shower and change clothes.

In the summer, take showers as needed to wash away sweat that often contains dirt and germs.

Workout

Exercise regularly. Exercise speeds up our blood flow to help carry germs away and out of the body for good!

  • Stretching
  • Cardio
  • Resistance
  • Balance

Fresh Air & Sunshine

Get out in the fresh air and sunshine. Staying inside means recirculated air which is filled with germs that recirculate with the air. If you can’t get outside, open a window for a few minutes. Sunshine acts like bleach, disinfecting the surfaces it touches–a great way to say goodbye to germs!

Vitamin D

Recirculated Air vs. Fresh Air

Clean Your House & Clothes

Target the most “germy” surfaces in your house and keep them clean. Sinks, counters, toilets, and door handles are covered with germs. Clean these surfaces regularly. I also wipe them down with bleach wipes twice a day if the flu is going around.

Wash your clothes and wear clean clothes. Change your sheets regularly.

Happy Habits

Make it a family rule to cover your mouth when you sneeze and cough. Use a tissue or your hand. If you use your hand, though, wash it afterward. Get thick, sturdy soft tissues to keep on hand so that people will use them.

And the hands-down most important way you can avoid the flu is…tada!

Handwashing

Wash your hands! The number one way to avoid germs is to wash your hands with soap (NOT antibacterial soap). Wash thoroughly–singing the Happy Birthday song all the way through is the right amount of time you should be scrubbing. If you wash quickly, you are just giving the germs a little bath. Scrubbing is what kills them.

The biggest way that people get sick is by touching a germy surface or having a germ land on their hands. When they touch their face, the germ invades the body through the nose or mouth. Clean hands protect you from 90% of germs.

Handwashing can keep you from getting germs and spreading them around.
