Staying Home When You Are Sick
Cold and flu season is here. The best way to strengthen the immune system is to get enough rest, hydrate with water all day long and eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables and low in sugar. Sugar suppresses the immune system. A single cough can contain as many as 200 million virus particles and is said to travel out of the lungs at a speed of up to 500 miles per hour! Once those germs are out in the world, they can survive for several hours on paper and a few days on plastic or steel. When you are feeling sick, try to take those sick days and stay home from work. Have a healthy and Happy New Year!
