How to Stay Healthy During Flu Season

Flu season is upon us and if you have yet to take the right courses of action to stay healthy, you still have time.

The influenza virus is a pathogen that is easily spread from person to person. And unless you have had that specific strain before (and it is a healthy virus), you are likely going to get sick. But sickness does not have to be in the future, especially if you take these helpful tips on how to stay healthy during flu season.

Wash Your Hands

No matter what kind of work you are in, you will come into contact with things that other people have touched. The last person who touched that thing could have had the flu and passed it on to you. You may touch your phone, keyboard, mouse, and face by the time you wash your hands. Be sure to wash your hands often with water and soap for about 20 seconds.

Avoid the Infected

While you do not have to treat them like zombies, you should do your best to not stand so close to them. The flu is an airborne pathogen, so if they sneeze or cough it could easily spread into your respiratory system. Don’t shake hands with the infected, and avoid using anything they have used–wash your hands if you accidentally do so.

Get Your Flu Shot

Your best bet at staying sick-free is to get your flu shot. A flu vaccine is comprised of three or four of the flu viruses which you are most likely to get that year. The pathogens in the vial are weak or dead and can easily be fought by your immune system. Once it has developed the proper antibodies, you will be immune for as long as you live.
