Wellness Worthwhile: Shoo the Flu!
Every month in 2013 keep a look out for our Wellness Worthwhile Tip from Wild Dunes Resorts' Sand & Sea Salon and Spa Director, Sally Hickerson!
No one likes the flu...that's for sure. As the flu season peaks in January, whether you choose to get a flu shot or not, it’s important to be aware of ways to keep yourself healthy.
The flu is not only transmitted by coughing and sneezing but also by touching a surface that has the virus on it then touching your mouth or nose. Because many of us share computers and phones at the office, it’s important to note that those surfaces are possible culprits. Though it’s probably not a good idea to wash your keyboard in the bathroom sink or spray disinfectant onto it, you should make sure that you wash your hands often and keep a bottle of hand sanitizer on the ready. Clean the receiver of your phone with an antibacterial wipe, and try not to touch your face.
Follow these simple tips to help keep yourself out of the doctor’s office this winter...for your health!
