To maintain your health from winter diseases

Influenza, colds, and colds are especially common in the winter, when only about 200 types of viruses can cause a cold.
Here are the most important methods that can be followed to prevent these and all winter diseases:
Eat healthy
Eating nutritious food daily will provide your body with enough vitamins, carbohydrates and fats, which keep the body active and reduce its susceptibility to disease, not to mention that it speeds up your recovery from diseases if you contract them.
Although the winter season comes with many unhealthy food temptations, we advise you to be a little slow when choosing your food, and rather resort to healthy diets and important nutritional habits in preventing winter diseases, so try to choose foods that:
Rich in antioxidants, proteins and fibre.
Rich in vitamins, such as Vitamins B complex, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D.
Low in fat and sugar.
Drink enough water
One of the ways to prevent winter diseases is not to neglect to drink water, in order to maintain high levels of humidity in your body during the day, as the body in winter does not tend to remind you that it feels thirsty as clearly as it does in summer, so it is easy to forget and neglect to drink water.
Stay active and fit
It is no secret that the winter season may be an annoying season for some people. Indeed, even getting out of bed in the morning may become stressful. This is a medical condition called seasonal winter depression, but you can fight it by constantly communicating with family members and friends, and maintaining your social activity.
Keep your body warm
Winter is a particularly difficult season for the elderly and people with chronic diseases, such as heart disease and respiratory diseases, so follow the following tips to keep your body warm and prevent winter diseases:
Close the doors when entering and leaving, and keep the curtains drawn.
Drink hot drinks.
Eat your meals regularly and without neglect, in order to maintain high energy levels in the body.
Wear enough layers of warm clothes without excessive or excessive clothing.
Keep your home free of mold and mildew
The dark and cold atmosphere is a very suitable environment for the growth of mold and fungi, and it is an atmosphere that winter naturally creates in every home. Here we would like to mention to you the places where mold and moisture may grow in your home:
Clothes storage places.
Wet places, such as: bathroom and laundry rooms.
Any place in the house that is not dried well.
Therefore, to avoid diseases that may be caused by this moisture and mold, we advise you to do the following:
Ventilate the house well and regularly.
Keeping the house warm.
Dry all surfaces in the house and clean them regularly, especially those that are more exposed to moisture than others.
These methods of preventing winter diseases are sufficient to keep you away from diseases as much as possible, especially diseases related to humidity, such as: shortness of breath.
Follow another set of tips
