Have You Stayed Healthy This Winter?

It's the time of year when our co-workers, family members, and fellow commuters are sniffling and sneezing with wintry illnesses. Our immune systems remain challenged during cold and flu season, and sometimes we just can't fend off a sickness even if we've been doing everything we can to prevent it. Have you stayed healthy this Winter?

I'm doing good so far, but i guess I'm congested because for the past few weeks anytime I laugh really hard stuff starts draining...ewwwww I know. But the rest of the time I don't feel congested, very weird. :shrug:

Ever since I started eating a diet very rich in fruits and veggies (hello, antioxidants!) and working out regularly, I haven't been sick at all. I think the last time I was legitimately sick was in 2000 (I got the flu that year). So I'm predicting that I'll stay fairly healthy this year too, despite working at a hospital full of sick people :)

I was sick with a bad cold/cough all of November, and then yesterday I got a *horrible* flu. Blah.

I've had a cold on & off. What's helped the most is hot tea and loading up on vitamin C (thanks to my regular vitamins & emergen-c!). But I haven't been sick with the flu or anything for quite a while.

I travel internationally a lot. No matter how many strains I become immune to, there's always a new virus or 50 wherever I go! I just get my H2O, nutrients and go with the flow... I've been lucky to have just two wussy colds.

No cold/flu so far this winter. I did catch a cold in September (which happens every year). The next one would probably be next spring. My body is so predictable!

A nasty stomach bug has been going around my office for the past couple of weeks. So far I've been able to stay healthy.

I haven't had a cold so far this year and I think it's because I live alone. But, as soon as I came home to my parents house for Christmas, my brother gave me a stomach bug. Ah, family.

I started practicing qigong a couple of months ago and haven't had so much as a sniffle.

I've actally managed to stay ok! Which is wierd because I am sick ALL THE TIME! I think the glutamen I am taking is really helping my immune system. And I have also been taking my women's once a day, cod liver oil and an iron pill!

I chose other because it's really been none of the above. It's been more like a constant little cold since September. Ever since I started working with children I have yet to be completely healthy, however I haven't had any severe illnesses either. It's definitely not fun...
