As the fall season is upon us cold and flu season is coming along with it. Every fall and winter thousands of people suffer from various degrees of cold and flu symptoms. If you are starting to think about what you can do to prevent your family from being struck down by repeated illness all fall and winter Tough Carpet Cleaning has some tips for you today.
Sleep on a Clean Mattress
First you will want to make sure that you and your family members are getting enough sleep every night. Children need 8 to 14 hours of sleep each night depending on their age. The younger your child is the more sleep they need to maintain their health. Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. If you do not get the recommended amount of sleep that you need for your age your body will not be able to function properly. When your body breaks down you are more likely to get sick. Tough Carpet Cleaning can professionally steam clean your mattress to give you an even better night’s sleep!
Eat Healthy to Avoid Getting a Cold or Flu
The second thing that you will want to do stay healthy and strong is eat healthy. Eating proteins, fruits, and vegetables will help fuel your body. When you eat fried foods and tons of sugar your body is not getting the proper nutrition. If your body is not getting the proper nutrition you are more likely to get sick this fall and winter.
Importance of Hand Washing
Next up on the list is washing your hands. Many people do not know how to properly wash their hands. If you do not wash your hands effectively the bacteria on your hands will linger on your hands and continue to wreak havoc. Studies have shown that kids that know how to properly wash their kids miss fewer days of school and have fewer illnesses. Do yourself a favor and make sure that you and your family all know how to properly wash their hands.
Drink Plenty of Fluids
Fourth on list is something that many people overlook. This tip is very simple – stay hydrated. If you do not get enough water to drink each and every day your immune system is not able to function at full capacity. Health experts recommend that you drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. If you are not used to drinking water this can be an overwhelming goal. Do your best to increase your water intake every day until you reach the recommended amount of water.
