Tips for Surviving the Holidays Illness Free!
A cough, sniffle and flu germs have a way of getting around. Avoiding these risks, especially during the holidays become an even more challenging task.
Here are some simple tips for helping you keep healthy this holiday season!
-Be sure to wash your hands regularly. A good scrub for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
-Always carry hand sanitizer. When soap and water aren’t available, a good hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol is a good alternative.
-Covering a cough or sneeze is always a good habit. Covering a cough or sneeze with a tissue or in the bend of your arm at the elbow are the best ways to do this. Teach your kids this trick as well.
-Keep your defenses up! Getting plenty of sleep, eating good foods and keeping up regular exercise are the best way to do this.
Make a wellness plan now, so you can enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season. For more information visit flu.gov.
