How to Handle Flu Season

Flu season is rearing its ugly head alongside the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We know how hard it is to kick those sniffly noses and scratchy throats that come with the flu virus. Wish you could have prevented the bug? Looking for a way to keep it out of your system this year? Keep your coworkers, family, and friends healthy with these quick tips:

  1. Steer clear of sick people

Did you know that germs can travel up to three feet from a cough or sneeze? Keep your coughs and sneezes covered, and reschedule meetings and nights out with people that are feeling sick.

  1. Wash your hands often

This is one of the CDC’s tips to keep the flu at bay. Wash your hands with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based sanitizer. 

  1. Avoid touching your face

Also known as your T-zone, your eyes, nose, and mouth are where infections can easily enter your body. It’s hard for us to avoid doing this, as we often absent-mindedly rub our eyes, scratch our face or bite our nails, but being conscious about these actions can keep you and those you interact with healthy.

  1. Work out to keep your immune system strong

Going for a jog, knocking out some deadlifts, and doing some squats can boost your immune system. Your immune system fights infections and disease and keeps you on the up and up. Hitting the gym strengthens your defenses, and can help your body kick the flu out faster.

  1. Get adequate sleep

The Mayo Clinic claims that “a lack of sleep can affect your immune system.” Slack on sleep, and you’ll be paying for it later! Make time for rest now, before you’re stuck in bed anyway.
