Although spring is in the air, so are those annoying viruses. Here's how to give your body a boost.

Spring is a wonderful season for feeling positive. The days get longer, there’s Easter to enjoy, and nature really starts to bloom. In fact you might have such a spring in your step that you are inspired to give your home a deep clean!

Unfortunately, this time of year also means that cold and flu viruses are in full swing, and those pesky allergies really start to kick in. As Time points out, spring is the second “peak season for common colds” due to various reasons, including our airways becoming inflamed thanks to allergies and changes in climate that leave us vulnerable to picking up viruses.

Thankfully, as the slideshow below illustrates, there are easy ways in which we can try and ward off these viruses by giving our immune system a boost. And the great news is that these methods won’t just benefit your body, they’ll also be great for bringing you peace of mind and connecting you with nature.
