The weather is getting colder, and flu season is right around the corner. If you want to try your best to prevent getting the flu this year, Bustle has some ways that you can do that naturally.

  • Sleep is such an important piece to your health puzzle, and not getting enough of it can do serious damage to your immune system. Getting enough sleep is one of the best things you can do to try and prevent yourself from catching the flu this year.
  • Wash your hands which can stop the spread of the flu and other germs from getting you sick. Keep hand sanitizer in your bag and make sure to use it often!
  • Exercise can also help to strengthen your immune system, so make sure that you take the time to incorporate regular exercise into your weekly routine.

It is so much easier to prevent yourself from getting the flu than it is to get over it after contracting it. Keep yourself healthy and happy this year and work on preventing yourself from getting sick.
