The Importance of Health Management During Seasonal Changes: A Personal Experience

How are you feeling right now?

Today was a particularly challenging day for me; I battled a cold while at work. The affliction didn’t come out of nowhere—my throat had been sore for a few days. Although I took a sick day yesterday, returning to work today was still a struggle. I seldom fall ill, but when I do, it’s a harsh reminder of how crucial it is to maintain good health.

I’ve always known I have a sensitive throat, and I try my best to take precautionary measures. However, the abrupt weather changes typical of this time of year in Canada often catch me off guard. One day it’s warm, and the next, it’s chillingly cold, making it essential to be extra vigilant about one’s well-being.

The experience serves as a critical reminder to us all, especially during seasonal transitions, to take health management seriously. It’s not just about treating the symptoms but also about proactively maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Regular check-ups, balanced nutrition, and perhaps most importantly, being in tune with one’s body can go a long way in preventing ailments that could otherwise disrupt our daily lives.

So let this be a cautionary tale to all: stay on top of your health and well-being, especially as we navigate through the unpredictable weather patterns that accompany the change of seasons.

Take care of yourselves, everyone.

    I just say it’s because all the germ carriers are back in school grabbing the germs and spreading them 🤨 lol … seems that way every August

    My daughter went back to school and within a week she was 😷 sick

    So far I do pretty good not getting sick- but I am without my tonsils … I had them out at age 25 because every winter since I can remember I would be hospitalized with being so severely sick

    My tonsils were like a sickness/germ magnet making me sick

    Since I had them out that never happens anymore ❤️ very rarely get sick with germs

    I hope you are doing ok 🙏

      Did anything change after you had your tonsils removed? Ever since I was little, I’d start to catch a cold when my tonsils would swell, followed by a fever and then being bedridden. I used to consider having them removed, but now I’ve learned to manage it well.

      I’ve fully recovered now. Thank you for your concern😊.

        Everything changed – I would no longer get sick!! I used to get sick all the time until I had them out and then suddenly like magic I never usually get sick anymore

        Although I say that as I am sick now 🤨😩

        But normally I don’t get sick anymore… I don’t really get sore throats either

        My tonsils seems to catch every germ and make me sick

        Since I had them removed – not “usually” sick EVER

        Glad to hear you better and back to normal 😊👏

        I apologize for the late response. I’ve just started my vacation and am heading to Europe✈️. I’m currently waiting for my flight, and finally have a moment to reply. Funny how when I suddenly have free time, I find myself looking for things to do. I really should enjoy these moments more.

        Tonsils can indeed be troublesome👿.
        I considered having mine removed when I was a child, but I got scared and decided against it.

        Did your health improve after that?

        How exciting! Enjoy your vaca 🙌 ✈️

        Yes my health improved right away – I rarely get sick now – and it’s just way better without tonsils for me… is like night and day! 😊
