It’s here! The day that some of us have been looking forward to…and some not so much. School is officially in session! Which means that your chances of getting sick just went through the roof. Before that roof gets blown off let’s talk about the procedures that you should take to keep it intact.
1. WASH. YOUR. HANDS.
It’s the most basic thing but is forgotten all too often. If you think that washing your hands doesn’t do much but give you wet hands then you are incorrect my friend. Washing your hands…
- Reduces the number of people who get sick with diarrhea by 31%
- Reduces diarrheal illness in people with weakened immune systems by 58%
- Reduces respiratory illnesses, like colds, in the general population by 16-21%
2. Use germ etiquette
Remember to cough and sneeze into your arm and wash your hands afterward. When dealing with food be sure to sanitize your hands beforehand to avoid food poisoning.
3. Stay healthy!
Getting plenty of rest, great nutrition and drinking plenty of water will not only make you a happy person but you’ll feel great and your immune system will be able to fight against bacteria faster and stronger.
4. Get PhoneSoap
Your phone is your number one school accessory. That thing is going to collect all the germs and bacteria that you do not want to mess with. Your PhoneSoap will be your best friend. #BFF
Back to school germs are nothing to be afraid of. Just be sure to take precaution and keep you and your family safe from sickness.
