Everyone wants to know how to avoid getting sick, and for good reason – adults get 2-3 colds a year.
Here are some tips on how to stop a cold before it starts:
Support your immune system
Preventing a cold begins with your immune system. Drinking fluids, eating a balanced diet and snacking on yogurt may help your body prepare for and potentially even prevent a cold.
Common cold prevention is sometimes as simple as avoiding people who have a cold, especially during the first 2-3 days that symptoms like a sore throat appear.
Wash your hands
A great way to help prevent a cold is to frequently wash your hands for 20 seconds (or hum “Happy Birthday” twice). By targeting how germs spread, you can reduce your chance of getting a cold by about 20%.
Don’t touch your eyes or nose
Keep your fingers away from your eyes and nose to avoid spreading germs. A single gram of bacteria can contain 1 trillion germs.
