Wellness Coaching Experts on How to Prevent Spreading Germs at Work, Honolulu, Hawaii

During cold and flu season, it’s important to protect yourself and others from the spread of germs, and the workplace is one of the easiest places to get sick. Wellness coaching is a great way to learn a personalized approach to leading a healthier and more fulfilling life, helping you implement practices to keep you healthy and flu-free throughout the year. At IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, nutrition and wellness coaching help clients tailor their lifestyles to become the healthiest versions of themselves.

5 Ways to Prevent Spreading Germs at Work

1. Get Vaccinated

Getting your flu shot at the start of flu season will not only prevent you from contracting the flu, but it will prevent you from spreading it to others. This is especially important for people who can experience serious complications from the flu, like babies and elderly people.

2. Wash Your Hands

3. Stay Home

If you find yourself getting sick, it may be best to stay home to prevent passing on germs to other people, especially if you’re sneezing a lot. Your co-workers will be appreciative.

4. Use Disinfectant Wipes

Keep a container of disinfectant wipes in the office and wipe down your desk, mouse, and keyboard daily. Disinfecting doorknobs and communal surfaces is also a good idea. 

5. Take Vitamin C

Take a vitamin C supplement to boost your immune system and help your body fight off any germs you come into contact with. You’ll be less likely to come down with something.

Defending yourself against germs during flu season is the best way to avoid spreading them, especially in the workplace where germs are rampant. Nutrition and wellness coaching is also a great way to boost your body’s defenses and remain strong against airborne illness.
