Protect yourself from the flu with these 7 effective home remedies

Each and every year the dreaded flu season rolls by. Instead of secretly hoping and wishing that you don’t get sick, rather spring into action and try these home remedies to prevent you and your family from catching a cold or the dreaded flu.

Here are 7 home remedies to help fight off the flu:

1) Stress Less-Meditate
Unfortunately going through stressful times or feeling stressed can be extremely detrimental to your health. One way to ensure that you can clear your mind and let go of your stress is to learn how to meditate. One study conducted by the University of Wisconsin in 2012, found that regular meditation and other mindful techniques can reduce your chances of catching a cold by up to 50 percent. This was especially found to be effective in the older populations.

2) Wash your Hands More Often

Equally as important is drying your hands effectively after washing them, as germs prefer a moisture rich environment to breed in.
