Keep colds and flu at bay this winter with these quick immune boosting tips.

Move

Aim to take a 10 minute brisk walk 3 times each day. Or try a slow and mindful practice like gentle yoga or Tai Chi.

Sleep

Get plenty of sleep and make time to wind down and relax each evening.

Eat

Cook up plenty of warming hearty stews and roast winter vegetables.

De-stress

Learn a breathing practice, spend time with friends and family and make time for hobbies and activities that help you relax.

Hydrate

Your immune system works better when you are well hydrated. Try to avoid drinking too many caffeinated drinks and instead warm up with herbal teas and plenty of water.

Sing

According to research by UCL, singing improves heart and lung function, boosts immunity and lifts your mood. Why not join your local choir to stay healthy this season?
