How To Not Get Sick!

The reason we get sick in the winter season shouldn’t be blamed on the frosty weather. We spend several hours indoors surrounded by many people. Add these two together and you get lots of germs. However, spring is rapidly approaching and our immune systems could still be laying low from the winter season. Follow these steps to pump up your health going into the spring season.

Wash your hands! Duh.

Keeping your cute, scented, antibacterial gel on hand may help the cause, but it may also increase the amount of bacteria on your hands. Instead, Rover recommends an alcohol based gel, which won’t foster the development of resistant germs… Ew.

Sleep in. Seriously…

Staying consistent with your sleep schedule throughout the week will not only keep you well rested, but it also keeps your immune system from shutting down. If possible, wake up and go to bed at the same times, daily. A crazy all-nighter followed by going to bed at 4am the next night could lead to runny noses and sore throats.

Stay hydrated.

Being dehydrated and lacking sleep is a way of life for college students. However, your abused immune system could be plotting to get back at you for your crazy nights out. Drinking water can beat fatigue, headaches, and kidney problems. The average male should drink 3 liters of water and the average female should drink 2 liters. Your kidney and immune system will thank you later.

Valentine’s Day

valentines_finger_021313_2

During the third century in Rome, Emperor Claudius II decided that single men would be better utilized as soldiers than husbands or fathers. So basically, all the single ladies–remained single ladies.

Saint Valentine defied Claudius and performed the marriages of young people, in secret. Of course, secrets don’t remain secrets all that long. Valentine was put to death for his actions.

It wasn’t until the end of the 5th century, that February 14th was declared as St. Valentine’s Day and associated with love. The most over-the-top gift of love is the Taj Mahal in India. Mughal Emperor Shahjahan built it as a memorial to his wife. If you can’t give a Taj Mahal to your Valentine this year, check out RoverTown for sweet Valentine’s Day discounts!
