Expert Advice From Dr Ross Perry

As Seen In The Metro

metroAs the nation prepares to come out of our second lockdown period, the Metro reminds us how we can stay healthy over the winter period by looking after ourselves and protecting our wellbeing.

The feature says:

“After a spring/summer lockdown filled with long walks, gardening and cycle rides, it can feel like a challenge to stay healthy at home in winter. But during the colder months, when we’re more susceptible to infection, it’s more important than ever that we protect our wellbeing.”

We’re more prone to cold and flu viruses in the winter because they survive better in colder, drier weather.

Health experts including Dr Ross Perry were invited to share their advice and tips.

Ross picked up on the importance of staying active, which can be an enormous boost to general health. He told The Metro:

“Adults should aim to get some kind of exercise every day. That could be 75 minutes of vigorous activity across the week or 150 minutes of moderate activity.

“There are huge mental and physical benefits from exercising together. Doing something you all enjoy, like a family bike ride, will increase endorphins, burn off excess energy and work the major muscle groups. It’s also a great way to build lifelong healthy habits, which help connect physical activity with fun, family and community.”

Other health experts also provided tips, including:

  • Eat a diet rich in vitamin D to aid the body’s immune system and take a 10mg supplement between November and March
  • Manage alcohol consumption – max 14 units a week
  • Get active outdoors to help lose weight or maintain a healthy weight
  • Stop smoking – seek help if you need to. The benefits are enormous
  • Get a flu jab to help protect against influenza
