Don’t let the flu keep you from meeting clients and practicing your craft!

Staying well during flu season is important to both your health and career.

Colder weather brings family fun, holiday cheer, and beautiful scenery. However, it also is easier to get sick. Staying well during flu season allows you to continue working with clients and enjoy the holidays with your family.

Here are 6 tips to stay healthy this flu season.

water

Drink lots of water

Our bodies are largely made up of water and need to stay hydrated so our bodies work correctly! Drink at least eight cups of water daily to see benefits like increased productivity, regulated internal body temperature, and lower rates of headaches. Your immune system will appreciate the help!

home

Stay home if you’re sick

If you’re not feeling well, stay home! The flu spreads through coughing, sneezing, and talking. You can infect those you interact with if you leave your house while you’re feeling ill. Take some medicine, grab a blanket, and watch your favorite Netflix movie — you’ll be back on your feet in no time!

sleep

Catch up on Zzz’s

Sleep is important every day, but especially during flu season. Getting an appropriate amount of sleep helps your body function normally. It’s nearly impossible for our bodies to fight infection when we’re not well rested, so make sure you get some quality shut-eye this flu season.

washing hands

Wash and sanitize your hands

Touching something that has germs on it and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth greatly increases your chances of getting sick. Washing your hands often with soap helps protect you from those germs. If there’s no soap or water around, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol is your second-best option!

vaccine

Get your flu shot

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting your flu shot means you’re 40-60% less likely to get the flu. Make sure you get your flu vaccine each year so you’re well protected against the virus.

disinfect

Disinfect your equipment

Similar to your hands, your equipment can pick up germs! It’s imperative that you sterilize your equipment after each use to keep your clients and yourself safe. It’s also wise to clean your stuff again once you get home for the day.

Staying well during flu season is a priority for everyone. With these preventive measures in your arsenal, you can rest assured that you’re prepared as best you can. MOBILESTYLES PROs and clients must adhere to health and safety guidelines to prevent the spread of illness.
