The best defense is good prevention. Keep viruses out of your home is easier than getting over a cold or the flu. A few years ago when the H1N1 virus was a major health concern, the CDC ( Center for Disease Control) put out a bulletin with their top prevention tips. I remember being surprised to see washing your hands as one of their top tips. I expected some brilliant insight of unexpected wisdom but no it was simply: wash your hands.
Hand washing reminders:
Wash hands as soon as you return home from being in public.
Make it a habit of washing your hands as soon as you walk in the door
Wash your hands before eating
This includes- eating in the car, fast food restaurants and snacking
When you wash your hands- wash for 20 seconds
Wash- rinse and dry
I know so simple and yet when you don't get the flu it's priceless!!!!!
Wishing you all health and vitality this winter!!
