Tips to avoid the back-to-school plague
Help your kids leave the germs at school
Be prepared this school year to fend off illnesses. To start off on the right foot, you and your family can follow these four helpful tips:
Boost your immune system. When our bodies are in tip-top shape, they can help fight off those organisms even before the bug hits. Make sure you and your family are eating the good stuff, getting enough rest and avoiding stress.
Keep your hands clean. Soap and water should be your best friends. Washing your hands is the best way to keep the flu, viruses and colds away. Wash your hands before meals and after:
Blowing your nose.
Using the bathroom.
Stay on top of vaccinations. Vaccinations or shots aren’t just for kids anymore. Use back-to-school time to think about the shots that are right for you as well. Ask your doctor to suggest a program that works for you and your family to prevent infectious diseases.
Stay home if you’re sick. This is one time where you don’t have to share. Avoid spreading your germs to others. If you can, stay home from school and work when you’re not feeling well.
