Try as you might to ignore it, cold and flu season is slowly creeping around the corner.
That means you'll most likely be one of millions who is left to stave off a stubborn cold or take time off work to battle the flu with everything from chills to high temperatures, along with aches, pains, sinus infections and anything else you can cram into a list of typical symptoms.
So how do you prevent colds and the flu?
The rules for attempting to prevent getting either of the two aforementioned afflictions is fairly consistent across the board. The trouble with prevention isn't so much you adhering to a certain set of rules but rather steering clear of the sickness that others might be carrying.
Work immediately comes to mind as most of your co workers probably opt to stay home when they're sniffling, sneezing or not feeling well. Then again, you'll have that segment of workers that think gutting out the flu or cold makes them a better value as an employee. But what they're really doing is creating a germ filled office and making your chances of getting sick that much greater.
