7 Easy Tips to Stay Healthy This Winter

As the cold moves in, it is time to adjust your routine to respond to the changes that it brings. Winter is a beautiful time of year, but the approach of winter means that cold and flu season is also on its way. Today’s blog posts shares 7 easy tips to stay healthy and strong this winter by incorporating daily habits that are proactive against colds and flu and will also boost your immune system.

Cold-Q to the Res-Q

Cold-Q is an all-natural oral spray that attacks cold and flu viruses where they live. You just simply spray it on the back of your throat and it will attack colds right where they live. It works immediately by attacking the virus in the early stages of development. Keep Cold-Q on hand and use it at the very first sign of cold and flu symptoms like a sore throat, runny nose or coughing. You just continue to use it until the symptoms are gone. How awesome does this sound?!? It is a lifesaver for me.

If you don’t catch it in time and already have a cold or the flu, just start using immediately. A study showed that about 80% of patients who sprayed with Cold-Q were free of symptoms within two days of treatment with the product as compared to the control group which showed less than 10% response by day 3.

I particularly like that it is made from a formula of natural herbs, free of pesticides, preservatives, heavy metals and is non-GMO. It is also super convenient and easy to use.

You simply apply 5 sprays to the back of the throat, 3 times per day. Continue spraying until you no longer feel symptoms of a cold and flu. You should wait 30 minutes after spraying before you eat or drink.

Cold-Q is available at many health food stores, as well as available for purchase online worldwide. For more information, visit www.coldq.com.

Bundle Up

We were all taught at an early age to bundle up in the winter. It is still true! Dress in layers and you will be warm and comfortable at all times.  The extreme temperature change from indoor to outdoor can stress the immune system.

Stay Hydrated

Two thirds of your body is made of water, so staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your health this winter. I have read that you should aim for drinking eight glasses of water daily…and lattes don’t count!

If you are tired of drinking water, try drinking warm water or adding berries and fruit to your (warm or cold) water to naturally flavour it. It also looks pretty, too!

Eat Healthy

Eat your way to health this winter! You need to eat healthy to stay healthy this winter. A diet containing a lot of fruits, vegetables and lean protein works well for me. If you’re struggling to get the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables each day, try juicing them.

Plan your meals so that you have no excuse for not eating right. Eating foods that are high in Vitamin C will help keep your immune system strong, so include citrus fruits, kiwi, and broccoli in your winter diet. A healthy diet will also help you by fighting hunger, keeping your mood stable and decreasing your stress levels.


Physical activity is essential to winter health. Continue your exercise routine through the winter to stay fit, boost your immune system function, decrease your stress level and keep your weight down.  Always try to add at least a half hour of exercise to your day. Not only will it help you to stay healthy this winter, but it will also give you more energy.

Not all exercise has to be at the gym. Head outside on the nicer winter days and get some much-needed fresh air. Deep breathing, exercise and relaxing in the fresh air will make you feel amazing and totally recharge your batteries.

Wash Up Often

As children, we learned that hand washing is important. Frequent hand washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs and control infection. Be extra diligent about hand washing during the cold and flu season. Also, always remember to wash your hands before touching your face or eyes.

Get Enough Sleep

Getting about eight hours of sleep every night is essential for avoiding dark circles under the eyes, and it is also essential to keeping healthy. It is so important for those that want to stay healthy this winter. During the winter months with work, holidays and other activities, it is typical for sleep to be neglected.  Don’t let that happen!

  4. Great tips! We are currently living in the tropics so winter is not on the way for us! However, we are still susceptible to a cold! We live on a boat and i find as soon as we have “landlubbing” guest on board we end up with a cold or other illness (tummy bug) that they have brought along with them. I will be one step ahead of them next time! 😀

  5. Some great tips here! Thank you. I am going to meal plan this week. I’ve gained a lot of weight and it’s killing me. With winter approaching I’m so scared of how much more I will gain if I don’t plan ahead and stay strict.

    thanks for sharing those tips. I like the ColdQ, because I know these kind of sprays but they are not only herbals. I drink more tea in the cold season as it’s harder to drink more water when it’s cold. Also I practise a lot yoga. Stay healthy & thanks for the post.

    In the winter, exercise is really one of the first activities we drop. It’s just such a hassle to bundle up and off and then up again! But you’re right, it’s so important. And yes, with colds going around, washing our hands often is a must!
