While contagious viruses are active year-round, fall and winter are when we’re all most vulnerable to them. This is due in large part to people spending more time indoors with others when the weather gets cold. Here are some helpful reminders for ways to stay healthy this winter:
■ Get vaccinated against flu.
■ Wash your hands often.
■ Limit exposure to infected people.
■ Keep stress in check.
■ Eat right.
■ Get enough sleep.
