For a lot of us, it happens almost every year. The leaves change, you’re rocking a new pair of boots, and then suddenly you feel it: a tickle in your throat. You know exactly what’s coming next.
Getting a cold when the weather changes can feel like inevitable. When it cools down, it’s a lot easier to get sick. But that doesn’t mean that you have to fight the sniffles this season. Focus on avoiding all of the germs that you can out there by following these tips. You will increase your chances of avoiding a cold (and use those sick days you saved up for something a lot more fun).
Take Vitamin D3
African-American women are more likely to be low on vitamin D than most, and it’s very important during cold and flu season.
This vitamin can cut your risk of catching a cold by half, and help you fight off a bug if you do catch it. Stock up on tablets and don’t miss a day of taking them.
