Make the flu shot part of a healthy routine. Get it each year to keep up with changing viruses. It can help protect you and your family, especially seniors and infants, from flu-related complications.
Avoid carrying germs to your face (or even to other people) by keeping up with regular hand washing. In a pinch, hand sanitizer helps, too. And be sure to wipe down surfaces around your home with a germ-killing product.
Working toward a well-balanced diet plus 6 to 8 glasses of water a day can benefit your health, including your immune system. Making time for exercise, getting enough sleep, and cutting back on caffeine may also help.
