With that in mind here are our
Top 5 Tips for staying healthy this winter
 
1.  Wash Your Hands
Seems obvious, but most people don't wash often enough
or well enough.  Make sure you use soap and
scrub your entire hands including around your fingernails. 

2.  Change Your Toothbrush
If you have been sick, toss your toothbrush and get a new one
to avoid any lingering germs on the bristles or handle.
 
3.  Drink Water
Make sure you drink plenty of water daily. 
Staying hydrated can reduce symptoms like a sore throat or stuffy nose.
 
4.  Keep Your Nose Clean
Consider using a saline nasal spray, Neti pot or taking a hot shower. 
The warm moisture can help clear your nasal passages.
 
5.  Get Moving
Getting a little exercise and sunlight for even 10-15 minutes a day
can boost your immune system and your mood.
