Whether it’s a cold, the flu, COVID-19 (more commonly known as the coronavirus), or another illness, no one really wants to end up feeling miserable. However, viruses and bacteria are tiny things and not always easy to avoid.
That means actually skipping out on cold and flu season can take some extra preparation and caution. Here are thirty ways to decrease your chances of getting sick:
#1 Shoes off indoors
#2 Clean doorknobs and other often-touched also but often-forgotten areas
Wipe down doorknobs door frames, railings, and other areas that people in the house touch frequently. Don’t forget the door to the fridge!
#3 Wipe down and disinfect the house once you’re feeling better
#4 Exercise regularly
#5 Eliminate or reduce processed sugar in your diet
#6 Get enough sleep
#7 Don’t stress out
#8 Get the flu shot
#9 Set the dryer to high
#10 Clean your tech
#11 Clean your filters
#12 Don’t forget the steering wheel
#13 Change clothes when you get home
Change into something more comfortable when you get home. It will help with stress levels (remember #7) and keep your house nearly germ-free.
