With the weather constantly changing every year and cold spells coming and going, now is a great time to take health precautions for you and your loved ones. A startlingly large amount of people come down with the flu or a cold every year, and are susceptible to picking up more illnesses as the weather changes. So whether you are healthy and robust, or usually catch a chill every year, our experts at Southeast Urgent Care at Fultondale are here to keep you at your best!

Here are some tips to stay healthy:

1. Wash your hands!

A simple way to avoid all the germs in your everyday life, is to simply wash your hands. Avoid touching your face, nose, or mouth when you can, as this can quickly spread bacteria. Sneeze into your elbow, and avoid spreading any bugs that you may have to keep everyone around you healthy.

2. Get your flu shot!

A huge number of people in the US fail to get their yearly flu shot, and usually suffer from it. The flu hits hard every year, and doesn’t discriminate against the young or old. So come in today for a flu shot or for more information!

3. Load up on Vitamin D!

Getting enough sun is a huge happiness factor for every person, regardless of their health. Before cold spells set in, be sure to spend time outside with your loved ones and enjoy the sunshine while it’s there!

4. Eat your veggies!

While this may seem like a lecture you’ve heard before, there’s a reason behind why parents and physicians alike push vegetables on everyone. Eating your vegetables everyday will give you the vitamins and nutrients that your immune system needs to ward off any bad bugs.
