Tips on Staying Healthy During the Flu Season:

Sleep

Sleep is one of the best things you can do for your body when you are sick. Catch some z's for a faster recovery.

Drink plenty of fluids

Water will do! Make sure to keep it coming.

Make some tea or cocoa

The steam and warmth of the beverage will help relieve some of your respiratory symptoms.

Note: Salty soups and broths are great for helping to clear the phlegm in your throat.

Humidifiers and hot showers for the win

Harsh/dry coughing bringing you down? 

Common flu symptoms such as a runny nose, sinus congestion, a sore throat and an annoying cough can make breathing feel like hard work. Running a humidifier or taking a steaming hot shower can help moisturize your nasal, throat and lung passages, loosening things up so to speak. 

Bring tissues everywhere

When you return to school and the general public, carry tissues with you everywhere.

Make it a point to cough and sneeze into them whenever possible! Also, never cough or sneeze into your hands. Best to use the bend of your elbow to cough or sneeze.

Carry hand sanitizer (or wash with soap & warm water)

Sorry to inform you that you are especially germ-y right now.

Take a few seconds every hour to sanitize your hands. Everyone will silently appreciate it. Best thing to do is to wash your hands with soap and hot water (top of your hands as well, not just your palms). Also, avoid touching your face if possible to keep you healthy!
