So as my family is coming under attack by the typical back to school "bugs"...aka...FLU! I thought I would write briefly to remind everyone that it can happen to you and lets take a few extra steps to help keep our family healthy.
1. AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE... Please sneeze and wipe their noses and grab things...Things that you will in turn grab. The coffee pot at work, a pen or pencil, a local printer (#1 spot for germs), or simply going in and out of the bathrooms. The best way to keep these germs at bay is simply to not touch your face, especially your nose where you can do a direct injection of the bacteria that causes people to get sick.
2. STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE SICK... I Can promise you that none of your co-workers want to get sick, we literally avoid it like the plague! So take that day off of work, stay home, get the rest you need to help your body heal. Your co-workers will thank you and if you have kids, so will other parents.
3. WASH YOUR HANDS... This goes along with both of the above. You are in contact with germs every day, so make sure you give your hands a good wash in the restroom or kitchen. Consider carrying an anti-bacterial sanitizer with you on the go!
4. EAT HEALTHY... By eating healthy you will naturally support your immune system to help you fight off the seasonal flu and bugs! When you begin to feel sluggish, toss an extra orange in at breakfast, drink your Shakeology, or eat some Greek yogurt with blueberries.
My number one goal every year is to not get sick! You should make it your goal as well!
