At this time that low temperatures begin, it is never too much to take precautions so that the common cold does not catch you by surprise. Know what you can do to avoid to some extent that your immune system is affected in the winter:

1. Wash your hands frequently. Remember that at this time people are more likely to catch cold due to the constant temperature change in which they are, that is why this advice makes a lot of sense. Throughout the day, we are exposed to germs, bacteria and other microorganisms that can enter our system, especially if we have very low defenses. Try to wash your hands with water and enough soap, as this prevents the germs with which you come into contact do not remain in your hands, and therefore, making you sick. Whenever you do, try to at least rub your hands for a time of 20 sec. People who wash their hands at least 5 times a day have been shown to have a lower percentage of getting a cold.

2.-Try not to touch your face a lot. The eyes, nose and mouth are a very easy target for the entry of pathogens, therefore, try not to touch these parts of your body a lot, since you only increase the chances that you end up getting sick.

3.-Keep your stress levels to a minimum. When a person becomes stressed, their immune system weakens and this only causes you to make the virus more accessible to your body. So, try very hard not to stress so often, and if you do, try not to be for very long periods.

4.-Take time to rest. As in the previous point, rest has an important role in your immune system, the immune system weakens before certain factors and lack of rest has been one of them.

5.-Avoid alcohol and smoking. When large amounts of alcohol are ingested, the immune system becomes weaker, which can cause us to develop an infection or dehydrate. The same goes for smokers.

6.-Avoid enclosed spaces. This may not be easy to avoid, and more so when the days are very cold. However, when a large number of people are in the same space, viruses can be transported from person to person in a faster and more efficient way. If you find yourself in an enclosed space, try to cover your mouth every time you sneeze, but never do it with your hands, instead do it in a handkerchief and discard it immediately.

Something that is usually recommended when you've had a cold, is to stay home so that the virus can remit and not contagious to other people. If you can not do it, take into account the advice that we have proposed before.
