7 ways to stay healthy in the cooler months


  1. Get a flu shot, particularly if you are around the elderly or children a lot. Make sure your other immunisations, such as whooping cough and measles are up to date.
  2. Remember to wash your hands regularly (for about 20 seconds) with soap and water or a sanitiser gel. Some say it should take about as long as it does to sing a rendition of happy birthday!
  3. Dispose of dirty tissues quickly and don’t keep them in your pocket or handbag.
  4. Keep door knobs, kitchen benches and phones clean from virus using antibacterial sprays or wipes.
  5. Eat plenty of veggies and keep hydrated with water.
  6. Enjoy exercise and fresh air in the great outdoors, even it it’s a brisk 15-minute walk in the morning.
  7. Be kind to yourself. Get quality sleep and think of strategies to stress less.
