Wash your hands regularly.
Did you know that germs, bacteria and viruses are all over the things we touch? In order to avoid the spread of any nasty bugs, we recommend frequently washing your hands. Can’t make it to the bathroom constantly? Try travel hand sanitizer, it can also help to kill any bacteria on your hands, preventing you or your loved ones from coming in contact with them.
Avoid touching your mouth, nose, face, etc.
As mentioned above, germs are EVERYWHERE, including your hands. You should always avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face, even when it isn’t cold/flu season. This is one of the easiest ways to introduce bacteria or viruses to your system.
Did you know that stress can actually lower the immune system? When the immune system is compromised, it can be much easier to catch the flu or a cold. We recommend taking time out of each day to relax, meditate and calm your body.
