Taking Care at Home
I spoke with a Chemist this afternoon, who confirmed that whilst the flu shot is recommended, it only goes part of the way towards immunisation and resistance towards seasonal influenza. Simply put, it is better to have the shots to at least increase your bodies chemical resistance to those nasties.
Vitamins and Boosters
Another bit of advice given, is to boost up on your intake of Vitamin C, D and Zinc, and whilst this can be extracted from natural foods, the pill varieties are sometimes more convenient and concentrated.
Hand Washing Regime
Most of us know the importance of hand washing, but even more so if you work from home as spaces are normally more confined and are shared resources with family and friends. It is not a bad idea at this time of year to regularly use an anti-bacterial hand sanitiser (maybe have one conveniently placed on or near your workspace).
Most of us have little idea what is lurking in our mattresses. A little known fact is there is at most times, up to 2 million dust mites in a queen sized mattress that come out at night and feed off dead skin that is dropped whilst we are sleeping. It is a good idea to have your mattress professionally sanitised at least twice a year, regardless of age. The most effective method by far is one that uses UVC light to kills bed bugs mites and eggs, with a powerful extraction system that will remove all traces after application. This also may go a ways towards the improved health of your sleep.
