HealthyChildHealthyWorld.com has a great list of 10 ways to prevent getting the flu (and other illnesses) this winter.
1. Wash your hands.
2. Sanitize. (in addition to the sanitizers they suggest, EO makes a nice spray, though too strong smelling for my sensitive husband’s nose, and Nature’s Paradise has a nice coconut hand sanitizer spray.)
3. Drink lots of water.
4. Eat healthy.
6. Stay home when you are sick. (I wish people did this with their kids!!!)
7. Cover your nose when you sneeze.
9. Keep your hands off your face.
Things you should already know to do, but sometimes we just need to be reminded to follow common sense instead of panicking.
