Your guide to Staying Healthy

Brrr, it's cold. Winter is here and we're wrapping up warm and keeping our fingers crossed for staying healthy and not catching that nasty cold that's doing the rounds.

Staying healthy takes more than a few crossed fingers though. If we want to ward of colds and flu then we need to put a bit of effort in.

We've talked to some key health and nutrion experts and got the low down on staying healthy whatever the weather. There's never been a better time to start making lifestyle changes that will see you in good health all through the festive season and beyond.

This isn't just a winter health guide either - these top tips will keep you strong and fit all year.

Making a few changes to your lifestyle doesn't have to been vast amounts of expense and giving up Sunday night's on the sofa for a five mile run - tiny, weeny, barely noticeable adjustments to how you live your life will all work towards better health and - as our ancestors would say - "a strong constitution".

If you don't want a cold this year and you'd like to start the new year with a spring in your step instead of a pack of tissues in your pocket then check out our gudie to staying healthy now.
