Each year, between 5 and 20 percent of Americans will get the flu, on average around 200,000 are hospitalized due to flu-related complications. The best way to protect yourself from influenza is to get the flu vaccine, but there are other measures you can take to reduce your chances of getting colds or the flu.Strengthen your Body’s DefensesKeeping your immune system in tip-top condition will reduce your chance of catching colds or the flu. Should you become infected, a healthy immune system will lessen the severity of your symptoms. Eating a nutritious diet is the best way to keep your immune system strong. This means eating plenty of lean protein and at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day. You can give it an extra boost by taking a vitamin or probiotic supplement.Eliminate GermsYou can significantly cut down your risk on catching colds or flu by washing your hands often, particularly after blowing your nose, sneezing, coughing, if you have been close to someone who is sick, and before you prepare or eat food. Use tissues to capture sneezes and coughs then through them away after using them.Stay ActiveExercise strengthens your body and your immune system. By just taking a brisk 20 minute walk each day, you can increase the activity of white blood cells which fight infection.Avoid StressHigh stress levels will compromise your immune system and make you more vulnerable to colds and flu. If you are going through a stressful period in your life, try to incorporate some relaxation techniques into your daily routine.
