These days, it seems like everyone is talking about staying healthy. Obviously, the conversation is largely dominated by COVID-19, and this new virus is interfering with large gatherings all over the world. Concerts, sports, and tons of other events are being cancelled left and right — including, sadly, some people’s weddings. 

Of course, any kind of sickness can put a real damper on your wedding day, be it COVID-19, the flu, or a simple stuffy nose. Here are a few tips to help you stay healthy before your big day.

Take Care of Your Body

Planning a wedding can be exhausting. The late-night DIY sessions. The sugary cake tastings and champagne toasts. The countless meetings with the wedding coordinators, vendors, tailors, and more! It all can be a lot to handle — and if you aren’t careful, your body might rebel and make you feel rotten. 

Make sure you take time to exercise, eat a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water to keep your body prepared to fight off germs.

Get Enough Sleep

Eating right and exercising are necessary to keep your body healthy, but they’re not the only things you need. It’s also important to get a full, restful night’s sleep! 

I know, it’s hard to sleep soundly when you have a million things to do (and when you’re excited about your upcoming wedding), but do your best to relax and unwind. A full 7-9 hours each night will make a world of difference in your overall health.

Get a Flu Shot

Fall weddings are incredibly popular these days, with many young couples tying the knot in September and October. But you know what ELSE starts in the fall? Flu season! 

If you want to avoid body aches and runny noses on your wedding day, consider getting a flu shot from your doctor. You may even want to ask the important people in your wedding (your parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen) to get one, too.

Wash Your Hands

Finally, remember to wash your hands regularly! This is great advice all year round, but it’s particularly important when you are trying to avoid getting sick. Use soap and warm water, scrub for at least 20 seconds, and avoid touching your face as much as possible. 

If you follow these tips, you should be able to stay healthy for your wedding (no matter what’s going around).
