5 Ways to Keep the Swine Flu Away

by AdminJ on September 16, 2009

As you have seen in my earlier posts regarding the Flu Shot, Flu Season is almost here. What is really starting to get to people is the threat of the Swine Flu.  A few ways to keep the Swine Flu away and some habits you should take up.
 
1. Keep your Distance
 
Try to avoid having close contact with people who are sick. By keeping a safe distance from sick people will lower your chances of catching any kind of illness they may have. The same goes for shaking hands, try to avoid touching people. Who knows where their hands have been.
 
2. Keep your Hands Clean
 
Wash your hands as often as possible. Make a habit of it when you come home, use the rest room, before you eat, when you come and go from public places. You need to scrub your hands with soap for at least 15 seconds, try singing the Happy Birthday song twice, when done with the song you can rinse.
 
3. Eyes, Nose and Mouth
 
Avoid rubbing your eyes, touching your nose and putting your fingers in your mouth. By not touching your eyes, nose and mouth will keep you more protected from giving yourself all the germs you were in contact with, even if you washed your hands!
 
4. Stay Healthy
 
Boosting your immune system will keep you healthy. Try to eat your suggested fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean proteins more then normal. They will help keep your body healthy and immune system up. As always take your vitamins and get a good amount of sleep.
 
5. STAY HOME
 
During Flu Season you should really take advantage of your sick days. When you are not feeling well stay home, don’t spread your illness to your office, school and everyone you come in contact with. You also don’t want to risk catching something worse from someone else while your immune system is down.
