With the changing of the seasons it is only a matter of time before cold and flu season is in full swing! As runners there is nothing worse than having to take time off training to nurse a cold or rest after getting the flu. Having the proper gear, giving your body enough rest in between training days, and proper nutrition are all great ways to help prevent you from getting sick.
There are a few things you can do in your home to help avoid those pesky colds…
- Sanitize surfaces frequently. Cold and flu spreads easily but the more you wipe down common surfaces the harder it is for those germs to spread.
- Use a humidifier. Cold, dryair pulls moisture from your mouth and nose, leaving your nasal passages dried out and your throat dry.
- Consider copper surfaces.Apparently copper and copper alloys (brass, bronze) have inherent antimicrobial properties that make them capable of reducing the spread of infection.
How do you avoid the cold or flu? What is your go to cold or flu remedy?
