Germs? Flu? Colds? No Thanks!

winter coldsAs the holidays approach, cold weather will keep many of us indoors, and the risk of catching a cold or the flu skyrockets. I know the last thing I want to deal with during the holidays is a fever, sore throat, or constant sneezing! There are wise actions you can take to help prevent the spread of germs. Please share them with your children and grandchildren. Sometimes we forget how easily germs are spread. Here are some protective measures:

1. Stay home when you are sick. You will need your rest, and this will also prevent you from spreading your germs to others.
2. Wash your hands often. About 80% of infectious diseases are spread by touch. Scrub your hands well with soap and water for 20 seconds – about as long as it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
3. Throw away used tissues.
4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
5. Keep surfaces clean.


Frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, counters and phone handsets should be regularly sanitized. Follow label instructions when using disinfectants and cleaners.

Grammas, do you have any tips to share?
Do Something GOOD Today: Carry a pocket-sized antibacterial gel for when you cannot wash hands with soap and water.
