How to protect yourself in the winter?
In the colder months, it's common to encounter viruses that can leave you feeling under the weather. Prioritising your well-being and health during winter is crucial.

It is important to keep yourself warm and wrapped up during winter. Wearing thicker clothing in winter helps prevent colds by helping your body retain heat. When temperatures drop, our bodies work to maintain a constant internal temperature through various mechanisms, including shivering to generate heat and constriction of blood vessels to conserve warmth. Thick clothing acts as a barrier against the cold, trapping heat close to the body and preventing heat loss. By staying warm, our immune systems can function better, as cold temperatures can weaken our body's defences against viruses and bacteria. Keeping your immune system functioning well can help protect you against colds, flus and other viruses.
How to keep my immune system healthy during the winter?
Keeping your immune system healthy during the winter could prevent colds and flues. To help improve your immune system, consuming a well-rounded diet rich in fruits and vegetables can aid in supporting overall health and well-being. You can further support your health by taking vitamins and supplements. Additionally, ensuring you have a good sleep schedule, engaging in regular exercise, and practising proper hand hygiene can also help.
