6 Healthy Habits to Reduce Your Chances of Getting Sick this Winter

Just because it's winter doesn't mean you have to get sick. You can protect yourself from falling ill this winter and every winter after that by taking on some of these six healthy habits:

 1. Wash Your Hands

  • Before and after eating
  • After waking and before sleeping
  • After any physical activity and before touching your face, including eyes, nose, and mouth
  • After using the bathroom
  • Anytime after you cough, sneeze, or get your hands dirty

 2. Keep Away From People Who Are Ill

If you can at all avoid close contact with sick people, do so. If it's you who gets sick, on the other hand, do all you can to stay home and away from others.

Suppose you must maintain close proximity with someone who's sick, such as a family member in your household. In that case, you must help take care of, be careful to minimize contact, keep your hands, and face clean and consider wearing a face mask when in that person's presence.

 3. Get Vaccinated

 Get your flu shot every year.

 4. Be Careful What You Touch

Be conscious of what objects you touch, like your car door or computer keyboard, and avoid touching your face after touching any foreign object without washing your hands first.

5. Cough and Sneeze Responsibly

Anytime you have to cough or sneeze, make sure to turn away from any people nearby and, if possible, maintain at least six feet of distance between you and any other person before you let that cough or sneeze out. Also, be sure to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or at least your hand. Then, if you do use your hand to cover your nose and mouth, be sure to wash up well with soap and warm or hot water afterward before touching anything else.

 6. Boost Immunity With Herbal Supplements

All-natural herbal supplements can go a long way toward helping you support your immune system in staying healthy and strong in the face of all the health risks of winter. Farlong Pharmaceutical makes several based on the ancient practice of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine,) including these two:

  • Lung Detox with Qing Fei Pai Du Tang - Lung granules made of a proprietary blend of 21 herbal extracts designed to improve lung and digestive health, these supplements for lung health are beneficial both as a preventative and to treat symptoms of illness once they've occurred, including body ache, fever, sore throat, coughing, wheezing and trouble breathing due to fluid in the lungs
  • Immune Booster with Cordyceps and Reishi - Made with two mushrooms known for their immune-boosting functions


Follow these six suggestions to increase your chances of staying well this year.
