    This is the easiest and simplest way to prevent fall colds from reaching your home. Approximately 80% of contagious diseases are spread by physical contact, which emphasizes the necessity of keeping your hands clean and sanitized at all times. Rub your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or disinfect it with an alcohol-based sanitizer when you don’t have access to tap water.

  2. Cover your nose and mouth

    Though we’ve been taught since childhood to keep our nose and mouth covered with our hands when we sneeze, it’s a better idea to cover them with the crooks of our elbows or a tissue to avoid the spread of germs through physical contact.

  3. Consume food with natural expectorants

    Garlic is a natural source of Allicin, which has natural antiviral properties and helps prevent fall colds and flu. Consume lots of food that contains natural expectorants, such as oranges, fish, oysters, anise seeds, fennel, yoghurt, red peppers, mushrooms, leafy greens, blueberries, carrots, Brazil nuts, oats, and sunflower seeds.

  4. Sweat it out

    Exercise for at least 20 minutes every day to detoxify your body. Our bodies flush out toxins through the skin, which is why pampering yourself with a treatment in the sauna is another brilliant idea to keep fall colds from reaching your home.

  5. Stay warm

    Although staying warm doesn’t guarantee you won’t catch a cold, it’s still a good idea to put on woolens and stay warm at all times. Apart from the comfort it will provide, the warmth of thick clothing will boost your stamina and help you stay upbeat all day.
