Tips to Staving off the Common Cold
One habit that I have gotten used to is the act of washing my hands frequently and thoroughly. Especially when ever I used someone’s cell phone, a public lavatory or after personal contact with others in a social setting. Especially after spending some play time with the grand kids. Germs are every where and to avoid a cold we must be vigilant and keep the germs at bay.
Wash your hands!
Public washrooms are often a necessity and ripe with all the germs humanity has to share. Never exit a public washroom without using a paper towel in your hand so you can grab the handle and exit knowing that you have protected yourself in a most efficient manner. After all washing your hands then touching the door handle? Don’t be a knob! (I couldn’t resist.)
