  • Staying Healthy Through Winter

    Red noses are really only cute on Rudolph. We have compiled a list of our top ten health tips to help stop you catching a cold this winter.

  • Tip #1: Wash your hands and use gloves.

    Cold viruses are most often caught via the hands. So it makes sense to wash your hands regularly with soap. If possible, avoid touching door handles, shopping trolleys or grab handles on underground trains with bare hands – always wear gloves. 


  • Tip #2: Make regular use of the sauna. 

    You don’t have to wait until winter to start your fitness regime. Have a sauna session at least once a week for an extended period of time. The switch between hot and cold will prepare your body for the large fluctuations in temperature felt when going from outside to inside and vice versa. This also trains the mucous membranes in your airways for a cold virus attack. But be careful: if you’ve already caught a cold, don’t place additional strain on your body by going in the sauna.

  • Ingwer has a positive impact on your health.

    Tip #3: Use ginger, the miracle root.

    Ginger has natural healing properties. No matter whether you drink ginger as a tea, chew small chunks of it or use it in cooking, it will have a positive impact on your health as the essential oil in ginger boasts anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

  • With a parking heater you can comfortably get into a warm car. 

    Tip #4: Always keep yourself warm.

    If you’re freezing cold, it will weaken your immune defences. So make sure you keep warm. Most of the body’s heat escapes through the head, so we highly recommend wearing a woolly hat. A hot foot bath in the evenings can help warm up cold feet. Smart people will also avoid cold cars and get a parking heater installed.

  • Tip #5: Make hot chicken soup.

    Researchers have scientifically proven that chicken soup has anti-inflammatory properties. Chicken soup also strengthens your body with important nutrients and simply does you the world of good.

  • Tip #6: Drink plenty and have a balanced diet.

    Only a well-nourished body can fight cold viruses effectively. So make sure you drink regularly and eat varied meals, for example salad, vegetables, fruit, fish and soups. Vitamin C and zinc are vital for the immune system in winter. 


  • Ensure sufficient humidity through regular ventilation. 

    Tip #7: Ventilate your home regularly and properly.

    The hot air from heating closed rooms can dry out mucous membranes, which makes them vulnerable to viruses and bacteria. So make sure there is moisture in the air. Tilting a window isn’t enough though. Open the window fully and stick to the rule of thumb of airing every hour for at least five minutes.

  • Tip #8: Get some fresh air.

    Fresh air does your whole body good. If the sun is shining when you go outside, your body’s vitamin D production will also be activated to support your immune system.


    Exercise in the fresh air helps to strengthen the immune system. 
  • We humans should also make sure that we get enough sleep, especially in winter.

    Tip #9: Get your beauty sleep.

    When you’re well-rested, your body is better at resisting cold viruses. So we recommend getting lots of early nights during the dark winter months.

  • Tip #10: Keep calm.

    Try to avoid catching a cold, but don’t obsess over it. Stay relaxed and calm. Don’t stress out! At the end of the day, the sniffles aren’t the end of the world. But we’ll keep our fingers crossed that you avoid the cold bug this year.


    Keep calm!
