Five Tips to Stay Healthy in an Apartment Community This Winter

Now more than ever, staying healthy is a commitment.  Most of our actions involve making smart decisions about our health and safety, especially with the lingering pandemic.  As cold and flu season approaches, you need to take some extra steps to stay healthy in your apartments in Ft Myers, FL.  These are a few tips that will prevent infection and keep your space healthy.

Eat Healthy

A good nutrition diet rich in fruits and vegetables and maintaining a regular exercise program will help boost your immune system, making your body increasingly capable of fighting off bacteria and germs that cause colds and flu. Loading your plate with healthy foods such as oranges, kale, broccoli, bananas, and other fruits and vegetable guarantees you're getting the nutrients and vitamins needed to help build your immune system and fight off any potential infections.

Get Good Sleep

Sleep deprivation has been proved to have a destructive impact on your immune system, making you more vulnerable to colds and flu. A lack of sleep can lead to decreased immunity, which places your body in a vulnerable position regarding fighting off germs and bacteria.  To keep your immunity robust, aim for seven to eight hours of sleep per night.

Avoid Stress

Stress can hurt both your mental and physical health. Everybody responds differently to stress, and some people may manage it better than others.  Regardless of how you handle stressful times at home and in the workplace, it's critical to practice self-care through meditation, yoga, reading, or any other activity that allows you to unwind, deal with daily pressures, and maintain your immune system in top shape!

Wash Your Hands

Washing hands is one of the most effective approaches to avoid getting sick and prevent germs from spreading from person to person. We highly recommend washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before rinsing to get completely clean. Humming "Happy Birthday" to yourself twice while scrubbing is an easy technique to guarantee that you're washing your hands for the proper amount of time.

Disinfect Touch Areas

Germs can survive on hard surfaces for several hours, and in some cases, for several days. Germs and bacteria thrive on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, door handles, and gym equipment. That is why it is critical to disinfect frequently. It would help if you also wiped down phones, remote controls, and light switches.  

Follow a Cleaning Regimen

In your apartment, you should stick to a cleaning regimen that works for your schedule.  This ensures that you are making time for everything from disinfection to sanitization of your home.  Make sure that you prioritize the cleaning routine no matter what you are doing so that you are routinely removing germs and bacteria from your area.

These are a few ways that you can stay healthy during the flu season when you are living in an apartment community.  Our apartments in Ft Myers, FL provide you with a spacious and clean space to call home, no matter what season we are in.  Contact us to schedule your tour of our complex to see for yourself today.
