Flu season is here and you’re bound to run into people having the flu. With that in mind, you’re going to want to ready yourself to fight it off yourself. But what exactly should you do if you think you have the flu?
Flu Season and You
Flu season comes along every year and makes people ill for quite a period of time. This can get in the way of your day to day life and make that week or two much more frustrating to deal with. What’s worse is that it’s contagious and you could end up infecting others. So we’ve put together a list of things that you need to do if you have the flu.
Personal Hygiene is a Top Priority
Personal hygiene is important if you want to make sure that you don’t get anyone else sick. Make sure that you wash your hands frequently. If you’re coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth with your arm and not your hands. This makes sure that your hands don’t cover anything it touches with the flu virus.
Keep Your Distance From Others
You might have a meeting with friends or acquaintances later on during the day but is it really worth the risk of infecting everyone in the room? Make sure that you distance yourself from public areas and meetings if possible. Flu is contagious and can easily transfer from person to person if you’re not careful. If you don’t have a choice, then make sure you bring along a face mask.
Have a Face mask On
One of the best ways that people with the flu infect others is through coughs and sneezes. Face masks prevent spit laced with the flu from getting out. This helps quite a lot as sometimes sneezes and coughs just come out of nowhere and can cause someone nearby to catch the virus.
We’ve been mostly talking about precautions about not infecting others. However, now we’re going to talk about what to do for yourself.
One of the most important things to do when you’re sick with anything is to make sure you’re getting the rest you need. If you’re sick and still trying to go about doing all your responsibilities in the day, you might end up becoming more ill. So get some rest and have someone else do your job for you if possible.
Bolster Your Immune System
Your immune system is your body’s personal security task force. They make sure to fight off any runaway infections in your body, flu included. So one of the best ways to make sure that the flu doesn’t become worse is to make sure that your immune system is strong and ready to take fight it head on.
There are many ways for you to bolster your immune system to fight off the flu. However, the most important way to do this is to make sure to have the right vitamins and minerals in your system. You can get these essentials through either your food, or CNS Center’s IV vitamin therapy that feeds the vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream.
Either way, you’ll get the vitamins and minerals you need to beat the flu and get back to living life to the fullest in no time.
