Holiday travel, endless parties and hours waiting in long shopping lines can take a toll on your health. As the season ramps up, it’s a great time to take some steps to support your immune system for extra protection.

These common-sense health tips can go a long way toward keeping yourself healthy this holiday season.

Wash your hands

Something as simple as hand-washing is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of germs. Hands—especially when they are used to muffle a sneeze or a cough—can spread germs to people and things.

A good wash requires at least twenty seconds of vigorous rubbing, using soap and warm water. If you can’t get to a sink, a backup is hand sanitizer with alcohol in it. It’s also best to keep your hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth.

Emphasize healthy habits

Drink plenty of water and get your sleep and exercise. Studies show that all of these activities help prevent our bodies from getting run down. And when you’re run down, you are more susceptible to illness.

Make time to:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking six to eight glasses of fluid—preferably water—daily.
  • Getting enough sleep is crucial to a healthy body and immune system. For most adults, eight hours of sleep is considered the norm. You’ll need all the rest you can get in between ugly sweater parties.
  • Exercise regularly. Pop into that new spin studio, stream a yoga workout from your living room or take a brisk walk. Research shows a link between moderate, regular exercise and a strong immune system.

Add supplements to your routine

For an extra level of protection year-round, supplement your diet with a personalized vitamin regimen.

“Most people don’t eat right 100 percent of the time, which makes it hard to get the nutrition they need,” said Kerry Grann, a principal research scientist at Amway. “Supplementation can help you fill those nutrient gaps.”

Make it easy on yourself

With the chaos of the holidays, it may be difficult to add something else to your daily to-do list. Read “6 Tips for remembering to take your vitamins” for some advice.

You can also look for convenient prepackaged servings of supplements to make taking them on the go a bit easier.

The Nutrilite™ brand, for example, recently launched a collection of MyPacks supplements. You can choose a pack focused on immunity, bone health, ultra focus and energy, heart health, men’s health, women’s health, or optimal nutrition†.

Each pack provides an optimal blend of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients targeting each concern†. And the daily doses separated into individual packages make it simple and convenient to throw in your purse, gym bag, backpack, briefcase or even your pocket.
