The nights are drawing in and the winter is on the way. As Autumn arrives something that comes with it are the health problems that are associated with this time of the year. Coughs and colds start to spread around more as well as more serious conditions that can be caused by a drop in the temperatures such as hypothermia and heart problems.
If you are someone who is in a higher risk category and want to get through the winter months with your health intact, here are some of the things that you can do to reduce your risk…
Get your Flu Jab – The flu is set to make a big comeback this year as we no longer have any social distancing restrictions in place, so it is important that you get your flu jab before the winter arrives. If you have not been invited already, call your doctor so that they can arrange for you to have it as soon as possible.
Walk Carefully – Exercise is great for both physical and mental health, but you might want to consider getting walking aids from a specialist such as Ability Superstore to help you as the terrain can be a little more challenging at this time of the year.
Keep your Home Warm – One of the biggest health risks is having a home that is too cold. Keeping your home warm can be done with good insulation, as this will keep the heat in better.
