We all know how crazy Indiana weather can be. Needless to say changing winter temperatures makes it harder to fight off germs. Dr. Sara Axelrod, an ear, nose and throat specialist in New Jersey, says a lot of it has to do with being cooped up inside with windows closed during the cold and flu season. She tells everyone to get a flu shot, wash hands frequently and to try to avoid touching your face, nose or eyes after you’ve touched stair railings, elevator buttons or someone else. Dr. Axelrod says you can also reduce the risk of picking up winter-time infections by eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep.

Spring can get here any time now.
