‘Tis the Season for the Sneezin’ or so they say. Fortunately, there are also immune support habits you can make part of your life to reduce the chances you will suffer a cold or flu.
When exactly is cold or flu season? Many people would say it follows the holidays of Christmas and New Years. Mothers will swear it is the fall when their kids go back to school and bring home viruses from all the other kids. Change of season is even blamed for causing colds, and allergies can feel like a never ending cold as well. So what is it?
There is a common thread between most of the co-called seasons listed above. Post holiday, many people are run down from poor food, too much drink, and perhaps less quality sleep. When school begins, yes there is greater exposure to more people, but also children may be getting less sleep initially as they settle back into their school schedule. Allergies also tax the immune system and make it more difficult to sleep, and these often coincide with change of season.
Being run down often comes before getting sick.
