It will be very common for all of us to catch some sort of illness during the seasons, but how well you deal with them all depends on how each personal reacts their own body.

But if you are one of the many who have not had the luxury, then there are still a number of way s to overcome viruses this winter.
Here are five hints to help you overcome the health problems:
Sleep: I cannot talk about how important sleep is for any sick body. It is the only chance your body has to fully recover and fix itself up.
Take your medication: it is important to continue to take the medication you have been prescribed, even after you start to feel better.
Take plenty of Vitamin C: This supplement will single handedly get you feeling better and allow your body to recover from its drop in immunity.
Drink plenty of fluids: Fluids make it easier for your body to do what it needs to. Water should be your first preference but if need be, then try green tea or fruit drink.
Blow your sinuses: It is good to constantly clear out our sinuses and blow your nose. Removing the bad mucus and snot inside you allows your body to recover easier and faster.
