Tips for Staying Healthy

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccination is “the single best way to prevent seasonal flu.” There are still more steps you can take to protect yourself and others. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Wash your hands often. Cleaning your hands protects you from germs. Hand-sanitizers are great for on-the-go sanitation.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Coughing and sneezing easily spread the flu.
  • Practice healthy habits in your surroundings by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and objects at home and in the office, especially when someone is sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home from work, school, and other activities so you can rest and get well faster.
  • Proactively take care of yourself by getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, eating nutritious foods, drinking fluids, and managing stress.
