It’s that time of year again! Autumn is my favourite season, but for many it means an increase in colds and flus.
It’s not exactly that there are more cold and flu viruses around per se, but that we get busy, we are outside less, getting less fresh air, less sunlight (which means less Vitamin D produced by our skin – an important nutrient for our immune systems).
We work a little more, stay up a little later, push ourselves a little harder.
And of course, the kids go back to school, so those who have kids have a lot more exposure to viruses than over the summer months.
I have a few tips for you here about how to prevent those viruses from getting the better of you and to speed up recovery if one breaches your immune system’s defences.
