So, it's June, 100 degrees outside, and i'm currently sick with a cold. Again. This is the 4th time since January that I've had a cold, and now I'm determined to keep myself healthy.
I workout a lot (2-3 hours a day), so I think this could be a factor, however, that's something I can't change (training for some things). Given that constraint. What else can I do? Thing I' already do:
1) Get Adequate sleep (7-8 hours a night).
2) Drink a lot of water.
3) Take a multi-vitamin everyday (thought I'm inconsistent with this)
4) Diet. I eat paleo, with lots of fruits and vegetables everyday.
Things I want to do:
1) Abstain from alcohol
2) Use a neti-pot regularly
3) Start washing hands at regular intervals, not just when i'm in my bathroom.
Do you guys have other tips and tricks? I'm tired of all the Tylenol Cold, Zicam, and cough drops that I've been ingesting. Thanks!
