The best way to avoid getting colds and flu this year is not to get sick in the first place. Keeping in good health by having a healthy lifestyle and not burning the candle at both ends will give you the best chance of fighting off viruses.
FEEL A COLD COMING ON? DO THIS!
If you’re just starting to feel a cold coming on, try gargling plain water. A study of almost 400 healthy volunteers found those who did this were significantly less likely to come down with upper-respiratory-tract infections – often linked with colds and the flu. The great thing about it is that you can do it just about anywhere at the first sign of symptoms.
