7 Strategies to Get and Stay Healthy During Cold Weather

7 Strategies to Get and Stay Healthy During Cold Weather top image

People oftentimes incur more illnesses during the winter months. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu, common colds, respiratory illnesses, and viruses occur most often during the winter. You can’t completely eliminate your risk for illness, but you can incorporate these 7 strategies to minimize your chances of calling in sick during cold weather. 

1. Eat whole, nutrient-dense foods.

Studies show vitamin and mineral deficiencies impair immune function. Getting the right nutrients can optimize immunity. It is also important to supplement with immune boosting nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Echinacea and a organic whole foods multivitamin.

2. Manage stress levels.

More than 300 empirical studies over 30 years conclude that stress can adversely impact your immune system. Find something de-stressing that works for you and do it regularly.

3. Cultivate a positive mindset.

Maintaining optimism and mental resilience can impact your emotional and physical well-being, making you less susceptible to illness.

4. Exercise regularly.

Exercise supports a healthy immune system in many ways. Even a 30-minute walk can increase blood flow and support a better mood. To up the intensity, incorporate our MaxT3 program to get a full-body, immune-supporting, fat-burning workout in just 12 minutes a day. Check out www.maxT3.com or more information and to start exercising today.

5. Get 8 hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep nightly.

You’re more prone to colds, the flu, and other illnesses after a night of subpar sleep. Conversely, getting optimal levels of shuteye supports your immune system. If you miss some sleep get a 20 min nap in which will make up for an hour of lost sleep and lower stress levels.

6. Visit your chiropractor regularly.

Chiropractic adjustments can positively impact your immune response. Studies show that even a single chiropractic adjustment can boost the immune system up to 200% and as high as 400% with long term care by positively impacting the nervous system.

7. Reduce your toxic exposure.

Environmental toxins can impact your immune system. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) provides excellent guides for:

  • The Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce
  • Safety ratings for over 2,500 cleaning products
  • Skin Deep Cosmetic Database lets you search almost 70,000 beauty products
