| 2 min read
-Carry hand sanitizer in your car, purse, briefcase, etc.
-Don’t share drinks or food with others.
-Try to avoid touching surfaces that carry many germs, i.e. public spaces like doorknobs, tables, desks, etc.
-If you are sick, cough into the crook of your arm so as to avoid your hands and block germs from coughing.
-Maintain a strong immune system by getting enough exercise, sleep, drinking lots of water, and eating healthy foods.
-Take vitamin C every day.
-Keep your stress levels in check as stress hormones lower your immune system’s ability to fight off viruses.
-Get enough sleep. The number of hours needed varies, but generally hovers between 7 and 9 hours per night. If you are unable to get all of your sleep at night, a midday 20-minute nap can make a difference as well.
