1. Eat healthy 

Maintaining a balanced, healthy diet is essential to help your body fight off illness. Eating vegetables, fruit and whole grains can help prepare your immune system in case you do get sick.

2. Wash your hands

3. Get vaccinated 

Your immune system protects your body from harmful germs. To boost your immune system, stay up-to-date with your vaccines. Get a flu shot! All Maryland Health Connection plans offer vaccinations at no additional cost, even if you haven’t met your deductible. Stop into your local pharmacy or schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor for a flu shot today.

4. Stay active

As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, it can be a challenge to exercise. Try virtual workout classes or invest in some home exercise equipment. It’s important to maintain your mental and physical health by staying active all year.

5. Take care of yourself

Lastly, a tip a lot of people forget: practice self-care. Activities such as yoga, meditation, sleeping, writing, listening to music and cooking are all great ways to help reduce your stress. Take time to keep your mind, body and soul in peak condition.
