The weather in the Midwest can be unpredictable. With all the changing temperatures and weather patterns it is difficult to stay well during the changing seasons.

Here are a few tips to help keep you healthy.

Change your air filters

Be sure to change your HVAC filters as recommended by the manufacturer. This will help to reduce dust and dust mites inside your home.

Wash your hands

Think about how many other people have touched that door handle… wash up to eliminate germs and help stop them from spreading.


Stay hydrated

Drink lots of water. It is recommended to drink half your body weight in ounces per day.

Take your vitamins

Start your day with fruit juice high in vitamin C. This will boost your immune system.

Add a Vitamin D supplement to your daily routine to replace what you were getting from the sun each day in the summer months.

Control your diet

Don’t get carried away with those comfort foods! Be mindful of what you are putting into your body and the amount you are consuming. This will help with energy levels.


Speaking of energy levels, stay active! It is recommended to get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day.


If you are feeling drained you may not be getting enough rest. Shoot for seven to eight hours of sleep per night. Try using essential oils or hot tea before bed to help fall asleep more easily.

Dress appropriately

Be sure that your apparel changes with the weather. Wear layers in colder temperatures.
