Back to School Means Back to Germs

Everyone is back in school, and that means children coughing, sneezing, noses running, and germy hands inevitably sharing toys, pens, and high-fives. CNN calls it the ‘back to school plague.’ Schools are filled with kids (and teachers) catching, and sharing their germs every day. On average, each child gets 6-8 colds per year, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine

Luckily, there are ways to prevent your children (and yourself) from getting ill. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

1. Wash Your Hands

  • For how long? Sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice while you wash.
  • Make sure your children don’t forget to clean between their fingernails.

2. Maintain a Nutritious Diet

3. Find Ways to Boost Your Immune System 

4. Get Enough Sleep 

  • Children need 9 to 12 hours of sleep each night.
  • Teens need 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night.
  • Adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.

5. Get Enough Exercise 

  • Children on average need 40 minutes a day of exercise to stay healthy. 
  • Adults should be active 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
