Cover the body
When driving outside or at home, keep your hands and feet covered to protect you from the cold. Wear socks and gloves to avoid the problems of feet and hands becoming blue, pain and itching. If the problem is more, then compress it with lukewarm water for 10-12 minutes.
Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables
To increase energy in the body and maintain immunity, take seasonal fruits (orange, guava, papaya, chiku) and vegetables (spinach, beetroot, amla, carrot). Be sure to drink vegetable soup.
Take a walk when it’s sunny
If you are suffering from asthma or respiratory disease, then go for a walk only after getting light sunshine in the morning. The cold air in the morning can increase your difficulty in the windpipe, which can increase the heart problems. Taking more sunlight between 8 and 10 am provides more vitamin-D.

If you have problems like cough, cold and fever, you can definitely drink decoction made from household things like ginger, basil, turmeric and black pepper. Water must also be drunk after lukewarm.
