The best way to prevent seasonal flu is by getting vaccinated, but that’s not the only way! The professionals at Williams Bros. have compiled their favorite good health habits you can do in order to stay away from the sniffles.
- Protect Your Paws
This seems redundant, but you can never wash your hands too many times. It’s important to use soap and warm water for the length of the time it takes you to sing the “Happy Birthday” song. This will ensure you are germ free!
- Avoid Touching Your Face
When you touch your face, you are allowing an all-access pass to your immune system for germs. By avoiding touching your nose, mouth, and eyes, you will limit your chance of catching something from surfaces that you touch.
- Pen Power
This simple tip is a great way to keep you healthy! Take your own pen with you wherever you go. From work to the bank, grocery store, and so on, you are exposed to an immense amount of germs. By cutting back on touching other objects that aren’t yours, you’ll win the war against those pesky bugs.
Clean all surfaces that many people are known to touch. This gives you a chance to kill germs before they can spread. You can also use hand sanitizer after being in a room that has not been disinfected in order to stay healthy.
- Drink Tea & Eat Protein
Drinking hot black or green tea with lemon and honey can boost your immune system because honey is antibacterial and lemon is known to thin mucus. Eating protein also helps strengthen your immune system, so be sure to get a healthy amount of fish, eggs, and yogurt in your diet!
- Watch Your Phone
Many people may not realize how many random surfaces they set their phone on. By keeping it in your purse or pocket or by cleaning it with a wipe, you are able to cut back on your germ interaction immensely.
Although these tips are simple, they will be instrumental in keeping you healthy this flu season! If you have any questions or concerns about what you can be doing to stay healthy, contact us today.
