Dr Marjorie Gillespie, primary care medical director at Care UK, advises that whilst the short days and longer evenings make most of us want to hibernate for the rest of winter, we need to make sure that we’re looking after ourselves in these colder months to help fight off any winter bugs and blues.
Dr Gillespie said: “Our free winter survival guide offers tips in everything from simple ideas for hot meals and ways to keep the home warm, to thoughts on how to stay as bug-free as possible this winter and tips on beating the winter blues or loneliness.
“After all, wise drivers know they must take extra care in winter with the health of their car because of the danger and aggravation that can be intensified when driving in the snow, rain and ice. However, not everyone treats their own bodies with the same care and attention once we hit the coldest season of the year.”
Here are some extracts from the guide to get through winter not only unscathed but to come out the other side fitter and healthier than before:
Viruses and other illness bugs seem to be everywhere in winter. Our immune systems lag a bit at this time of year meaning it’s not that there are extra bugs around but we’re just more susceptible to catching them. So what else can we do to prevent being ill this winter?
