How to Keep Sickness at Bay This Springtime
Even though the spring season officially began on the 20th of March, it finally feels like spring in the El Paso area. It only took a week for us to catch up but now the days are long and warm, taking us away from the seemingly never-ending winter and placing us soundly in the warm, temperate pre-summer season. As nice and comfortable as spring can be, it’s also the time of the year when the flowers begin to pollinate, creating vast amounts of pollen that can cause plenty of allergies to come about. The sudden change in temperature can also lure us into a false sense of security, often leading to illnesses. If you’d like to avoid getting sick, read this blog! We’ve outlined a handful of great tips that can help you stay free from illness so you can enjoy the warm spring days ahead.
Keep Your Hands Clean
Now that the sun is out, it’s only natural to spend more time outdoors with friends and family. No matter where you go, make sure to wash your hands and keep them clean as often as possible. Illness can be transferred very easily but keeping one’s hands clean can cut down on the threat of illness. Whether you’re visiting the museum or going to the movies with friends, make sure you wash your hands after opening doors, pushing buttons or anything else.
It’s always great to stay hydrated, even more so when the temperature gets hotter. By staying hydrated, you’ll be able to clear your body of toxins. Water also helps your mucus membranes (sounds gross but they’re important) work better to trap dust and bacteria, thus preventing them from entering your lungs and causing you to get sick. Not bad for a glass of water!
