It is cold and flu season again. It comes around every year and it seems like every year I get sick. I already have my first cold of the season. We can’t completely avoid getting sick, we don’t live in isolated bubbles. No matter how diligent we are we still live with the human race and we love some of the germiest people on earth AKA kids and grandkids.

I have included 4 links to websites by WebMD, Prevention.com, CDC, and a home health care site. They all have great tips on how to prevent yourself and others from getting the nasty stuff that goes around.

The biggest most important tip is to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. There have countless studies that show when you cover up you do not spread germs. Kleenex, Puffs, Kirkland, Chandaria, and a whole bunch of other companies make inexpensive facial tissues that are perfect for keeping the spread of germs in check.

The second biggest tip is to wash your hands with soap and water. Every time you go to the bathroom and every time you cough or sneeze. None of us want your gross germs; please wash them down the drain. If you can’t wash your hands at least use handsanitizer it is better than nothing.

Just so you know if you do not do these two simple things people are going to want to hose you down with a disinfectant like Lysol. There have been many a time I have wanted to; the only thing that stopped me is I didn’t have any. I worked with a woman who would do that, not very nice but very effective. Just an FYI this is not a recommended use of that product.

A third tip is once you are feeling better besides cleaning everything with a disinfectant like Clorox or Purell or Lysol wipes get a new toothbrush. Your toothbrush is a major source of germs and if you can’t get a new one at least soak it in Listerine. Kill as many of the sick germs as you can so you don’t make yourself sick again.

So please be considerate, cover your face and wash your hands. You do not want us spraying you down with Lysol.
