What can we do to help boost our immunity throughout the cold and flu season?

So the best thing that we can do to keep our immune systems healthy and strong throughout the cough and cold season, is to make sure that we’re getting adequate rest, make sure that we’re eating a balanced diet, trying to find ways to keep active and exercise throughout those those cold winter months, and [to] keep drinking plenty of water throughout the day. This, along with additional measures, such as keeping up hand hygiene and sanitation measures, are going to help us avoid both getting and transmitting infections.
