Well, recently some of my friends I know irl and on CR has gotten sick with the flu during the Winter season. Honestly, I got sick about 2 years ago around this time. Apparently, it started when I began the spring semester. A professor had the flu (which I didn't know @ the time) and by the time I knew, it was to late, I got sick L. But it didn't stop there, my dad later caught the sickness from me and almost blew alot of money on hospital bills. Luckily, he recovered fast.

So, what do you do to prevent getting sick during the Winter season?

I been getting flu shots annually now and drinking alot of water daily nowadays especially around beginning of the year. It seems to be working as of now.

Hate getting sick tbh.

Avoid babies and people with babies. Each time I get sick is from babies.

Wear less clothes when you go out and repeat this process until your body adapts to lower but not extremely low temperatures. Also try to avoid building up stress. Well it works for me considering I live in a temperate deciduous area.

^ Where I'm from there's nothing you can do to adjust to temperature. Its gone from 24F in morning to 68F in afternoon, and back down to 18F in the evenings. So even if you get use to cold you're sweating by the afternoon and then getting chilled off later, its a recipe for a nasty cold.

When I lived up north I didn't get sick as much and its consistently cold there.

I'm gonna say this in bold.....

LOTS OF FRUIT AND VEGGIES!!

It's been quite a long time now since I've gotten sick, and it's because I've been eating more of that stuff these days.

I just take Vitamin C pills Also, I make sure I keep my body temperature consistent and I always wash my hands when I know I touched something that can cause me to get sick.

I still need to figure out how to not get sick during summer

I'm usually always at home doing nothing but homework. It's super rare for me to be sick. But being at home doesn't always give anyone the full pleasure of not getting sick. Sometimes being sick is healthy.

Hand washing. I do it frequently when I come into contact with doors and other such things. That won't be a cure-all to the situation but it helps greatly reduce the chances of catching someone elses' cold.

I cut back on making out with hobos.

I don't really do anything to prevent it besides dressing warm and trying to stay inside. =_= My fam gets sick, though, and spreads it around. I just see it as something that happens.
