Basic Flu Fighting Tips
Sick? Stay home – get well and prevent the spread of germs at the office. If possible, arrange with your employer to work from home for a few days.
Clean up your act – Use a disinfecting wipe to clean surfaces before and after you touch them.
Encourage employees to get vaccinated – according to the Center for Disease Control, getting a flu vaccine is the single best way to prevent the flu.
Sanitize frequently – Place hand sanitizers in areas identified as germ hot spots. After you rub the sanitizer in, let hands air dry, which is part of the sanitizing process.
Give immunity a hand – about 80% of all infectious diseases are spread by touch. Wash hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds.
Drink up – stay hydrated!
Chow down on immunity boosters – Put cinnamon in your coffee, drink tea (black or green) or chomp on dark chocolate for a shot of antioxidants. Skip candies and soda in favor of fruits, unsweetened juices and water.
These are just a few basic steps to help in your fight against the flu. Actually good nutrition and good health habits go along way in fighting all types of illness.
