The Battle Of The Flu.

In the colder months are you avoiding your co-worker with that hacking cough, cold, or flu in the cubicle next to you? Do you draw your hand back from a handshake or doorknob because you have cold-and-flu phobia? If so you're not alone, no one likes to be sick, I know I don't! When we are it seems like the whole world is out there living and we're on the bleachers watching from a far. We may not be able to stop from getting sick, but maybe we can help to do some things that will help us get sick less.

Here are 10 ways to avoid colds and flu this season:

1.) Avoid touching your face, especially the nose and eye area.
2.) Get enough sleep, when tired your body isn't fighting as hard.
3.) Get a flu shot.
4.) Eat healthy fruits and vegetables to support your immune system.
5.) Work out to strengthen the immune system.
6.) Keep your distance from people displaying symptoms of a virus.
7.) Keep sanitizing gel or lotion with you.
8.) Smile and be happy, it boosts immune system.
9.) Drink lots of fluids.
10.) Take time for yourself to relax and recoup from the busy week.

Germs be gone!
