4 ways to not fall sick during seasonal changes
A runny nose cannot go a long way, here’s how to get better at healthcare during seasonal changes!
We could probably read through pages of healthcare tips and tricks, without ever incorporating one into our lifestyle. Before you take big steps like running in the gym for a beach bod with a serious cardio workout to stay in health and shape, start small. Baby steps have always been the epitome of successful regimens, so get better at taking care of your health when nature is about to shake it up a little!
Apple or Citrus: When in doubt
Yeah, we have heard how an apple a day can keep the doctor away, but it’s nothing without citrus. Vitamin C is an extremely important component in your diet. While an apple is great, citrus fruits pack a lot of vitamin C, and a medium-sized orange can provide approximately 70 mg of it. As adults, we need around 40 mg per day, it also helps in increasing iron absorption. Don’t skip this natural antihistamine in your daily diet during seasonal changes.
Minerals: Give me more importance, please
So, when you think of minerals that are mined, and some that are found in nature, which we need in our body in micro amounts, it sounds a little weird! We don’t need all of them, but here are a few that you cannot skip. Zinc, iron, and manganese are some very essential micronutrients you need to keep seasonal sickness at bay. Although there is a standard amount you could probably get out of seasonal veggies, it is best to run a blood profile to find out if you are deficient in any.
Water: No need to go overboard with it
Experts say women need around 2.7 litres of water a day, while men need 3.7 litres. If you are trying to recall if you finished 500 ml of it today or not, chances are, you probably didn’t. Try the old fruits in water, lemon in water trick to make it seem a little special. Buying flavoured water could also be an option for some!
Get a little physical: A little bit of stretching, or jogging is no harm
While jobs that involve a lot of physical labour itself have the perks of exercise weaved in them, those stuck at desks are less fortunate. Get up from your work desk every 20-25 minutes and go for a stretch. Incorporate a little jogging on spot or running a mile every single day through the seasonal change. This will help your body get used to the adapting temperature and overall climate.
