☐ Train yourself not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth. This is a toughie, but it’s a habit that will serve you the rest of your life, helping you avoid Coronavirus, colds, flu, and other viruses!
☐ Wash your hands often with soap and water for at LEAST 20 seconds. If you don’t have soap or water available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
☐ Avoid touching common public surfaces that other people touch – like door panels, doorknobs, etc.
☐ Clean and frequently disinfect surfaces and objects (like your cell phone!) that are frequently touched. You can use a regular household cleaner or wipe for this.
☐ Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
☐ If you are sick, stay home.
☐ If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and a nose with a tissue and then throw the tissue directly in the trash.
Here are some other things you can do to help boost your immunity:
☐ Get Enough Sleep. This can help improve your body’s natural immune function.
☐ Reduce Stress. Chronic stress appears to wear down your immune system and make you more vulnerable to illness.
☐ Eat a Healthy & Balanced Diet (low in sugar). A balanced diet rich in antioxidants (found in vegetables and fruits) and healthy fats can help support your immune system.
☐ Stay Hydrated. Drinking water helps your cells operate optimally, plus it helps your body more easily process food & eliminate waste.
☐ Exercise. Moderate to intense workouts lasting under an hour help boost your immune system both immediately and in the long run.
