Tip of the week ...

how to sick-proof your winter

Shoot up. A flu shot “reduces your risk for infection by as much as 90 percent.” Winter may be half over, but you can still find a nurse or doctor who provides the service at Flucliniclocator.org.

Make sleep a priority. Reduce your risk of getting sick by sleeping “at least seven hours.” Slumber also helps your “immune system remember how to fight off illnesses” that you’ve had in the past.

Sweat it out. A “45-minute walk five times a week” helps reduce colds by stimulating “more infection-fighting cells.”

Stay clean. Washing your hands is the “best defense against germs,” especially this time of year. “Alcohol-based hand sanitizers” are also good to keep handy.
