Wellness & Nutrition Tips to Prevent Getting Sick at Work, Honolulu, Hawaii

Nobody likes getting sick. Unfortunately, most people can set their calendars by the sounds of sniffling, coughing, and sneezing that fill the office during winter every year. While cold and flu season can present a greater risk of getting sick at work, there are steps you can take to protect yourself from these office-bound pathogens.

IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, is home to the area’s leading osteopathic physicians who provide medical and surgical care to Oahu’s residents. A big point of emphasis for IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health is preventing illness before it sidelines you.

Here are some steps to help keep you healthy at work through the cold and flu season:

  • nutritionWash Your Hands: Washing your hands is perhaps the most important thing you can do to prevent illness at work. This is especially important before you eat and after touching high-traffic areas like doorknobs.
  • Get Active On Your Lunch Break: Studies show that light exercise can help ward off illness throughout winter. Regular aerobic exercise on your lunch break can help increase your body’s virus-killing capabilities.
  • Eat The Rainbow: Naturally vibrant green, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables contain vitamins that can help you fight through colds. Stock up on these and other nutrition-packed foods for lunch or for a healthy snack to keep you in good health.

Don’t leave your health to chance. Call the osteopathic physicians at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health at (808) 521-8170 for the proper nutrition and wellness coaching to get you through the flu season. You can also reach them online.
