Are you ready for the change in season? This is the time when we all get sick with cold, flu and stomach problems. If you want to avoid being sick then it is the high time to think about your health and follow some simple steps to prevent season change related diseases. The NCD-F health Conner is here with some tips to make stronger immune system of your body during this season changing weather.

Drink plenty of water. Since the season is changing it's more important than ever to consume plenty of water for your health.

Keep stress to a minimum level. Studies show that high stress levels make a person more susceptible to catching colds and flu. Reduce your stress by working sensible hours at your job. Try to make some time to meet friends. If your stress is out of hand and you feel like you need some help, talk with your friends and family. Listening to music, watching comedy shows in TV can also minimize your stress.

Consume a healthy diet. Maintaining a good healthy diet with fresh fruits and vegetables and minimal amounts of meats is another way to keep your body clean and in good working order. Eliminate any kind of alcohol from your diet list. Avoid extra salt as it increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Exercise regularly. It is important to exercise regularly, even if only for 15 minutes a day! Get out from your house and take a short walk and enjoy the weather.

Get enough sleep every night. Every person needs 6-8 hours of sleep per night. If you're not getting enough sleep, your body will be vulnerable to illness. Enough sleep is very necessary for good health as it fuels body.

Wash your hands regularly. Keep the bacteria and viruses off your hands and away of your mouth and eyes. You can keep a hand sanitizer so that you can wash your hands off.
