By the end of the summer, we are all kind of looking forward to a cooler weather, but the thing about winter is that our children start dropping like flies due to colds, the flu and other illnesses.  Here are some quick tips on how to no get sick this upcoming winter. 

Get a flu shot. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends “everyone 6 months and older gets the influenza vaccine.” While it’s ideal to be vaccinated in late fall, “it’s never too late.”

Fuel up. “Diet is the fuel that runs the human machine, including the immune system.” High-quality proteins, such as fish and beans, help build white blood cells, while “brightly colored fruits and veggies provide immune-boosting antioxidants.”

Clean those hands.  Wash your hands, wash your hands, and wash your hands as often as you can.

Stay hydrated. Low humidity helps the flu virus spread. Use saline spray for dry nasal passages and use a humidifier at home to keep the humidity at around 50 percent.

Don’t hibernate. A marathon run might “increase your risk of catching seasonal bugs,” but moderate exercise seems to lower the risk of getting a cold.

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
