How to Stay Healthy During Flu Season
The flu season is here and this year it is more important than ever to make sure that you don’t get sick. If you want to keep yourself from the normal flu season as well as this new virus that everyone is talking about, here are some the most helpful tips to protect yourself and everyone else around you!
The best tips to help yourself stay healthy during flu season None of these are a guarantee to make sure that you are going to be free and safe from the flu or the coronavirus, but they will give you the best chance possible.
- Eat your fruits and veggies: You can’t have a strong immune system to fight off the flu without having a strong body to fuel it. If ever there was a reason to eat your broccoli, this is it! You’ll find that a strong immune system is going to be as important as anything else, so really prioritize this.
- Keep your hands and stuff to yourself: Try not to touch other people or even their stuff. Keep everything to yourself and do what you can to minimize sharing as often as possible. When it comes to public surfaces such as elevator buttons, pencils, sharpeners, and more, do what you can to wear gloves or to at least wash your hands as soon as you’ve touched them.
- Wash your hands regularly: Speaking of hand-washing, you’re going to want to take extra time to wash your hands as often as you can. No matter how good your protective face masks are, you still have to wash your hands! If you don’t have time to do that, carry some hand sanitizer on you so that you can use them and get back to work.
- Get your flu shot: Now is not the time to start missing out on the flu shot if you can get access to it. You’ll want to get it as soon as you can to help your body stay strong against any possible germs or virus particles that are drifting around.
- Stay away from sick people: This seems obvious, of course, but you’d be surprised how many people will still hangout with those who they know are sick. Even if they tell you it’s just a cold or allergies, make sure that you stay away from them so that you can be extra sure that it is something “harmless” from afar.
If you can, tell them that it’s important that they stay home from school to work so that they can do their part to help everyone around them stay safe from the flu this year.
Likewise, if you start to feel sick, you’ll also need to keep to yourself, even from friends and family members who could pass it onto someone else and get them sick!
This year, it’s up to all of us to take a step forward and work preventatively to keep those around us safe from flus, colds and, of course the coronavirus. The right protection works wonders, and all of these tips will do just that.
