Avoiding Colds and Flu
Colds and flu are caused by viruses that spread from person to person. Try these simple steps to help keep you and your family healthier.
- Exercise regularly, eat nutritious foods, and get enough sleep
- Wash your hands often, especially during the peak cold and flu seasons (late winter and early spring). You can pick up a cold from a handshake, the telephone, even money
- Avoid touching the moist areas of your eyes, nose and mouth
- Avoid sharing cups, glasses or utensils among family members, especially during peak cold and flu seasons
Defending Yourself from Colds and Flu
While you have a cold or flu...
- Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not into your hand
- Use paper tissues instead of cloth handkerchiefs to avoid giving the virus to others
- Drink plenty of fluids, especially if you have a fever. Liquids are also soothing to a dry, irritated throat and may help relieve coughing
- Get adequate rest in a well-ventilated room
- Use a cold-mist vaporizer to increase the humidity in the air - this will help loosen mucous and relieve a dry throat. (Be sure to clean the vaporizer after each use.)
