1. WASH AND DRY YOUR HANDS REGULARLY
It goes without saying that washing your hands with soap and warm water is the most important thing you can do to prevent getting sick. But did you know that drying your hands is just as important? Germs cling to skin more easily when it’s wet.
2. COVER YOUR SNEEZES AND COUGHS
But don’t cover them with your hands. Instead, sneeze into a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
3. DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE
Cold and flu viruses enter your body through the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Aerobic exercise speeds up the heart to pump larger quantities of blood and can increase the activity of a type of white blood cell that attacks viruses.
5. EAT GOOD FOOD
Proper nutrition provides the body with the elements it needs to fight the battle. Cut back on sugary and fatty foods and increase your intake of fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.
