Practice Good Health Habits
By Lori Hogue
Eat a balanced diet including plenty of vegetables, fruit, and whole grain products.
Drink plenty of water and go easy on salt, sugar, alcohol, and saturated fat.
Exercise regularly. Thirty or more minutes of physical activity most days of the week can help boost your immunity.
Get plenty of rest. Sleep is shown to help your body fight off illness.
Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs are often spread this way.
Stay away from people who are sick as much as you can. If you must be around ill people, try to maintain a distance of at least three feet.
Stay home from work or school if you get sick.
