Well, there are some ways. Here’s how you can prevent yourself from getting sick while at work.

1. Open the Windows

Stuffy offices don’t help circulate the air. When the windows are closed, you are forced to share the air with your coworkers, and this can easily get you sick. This is why it’s important to open the windows even just for a while, to help fresh air to come in. If the office doesn’t have any windows, you can always take a break from the office and go for a walk. This way you can get rid of the bacteria which can make you sick.

2. Protect Your Face

Your face is the door that welcomes bacteria into your body. So, unless you want to get sick, you should protect your face as much as possible. This is something you should do during the height of cold and flu season because that’s when it can get really risky. The best way to guard your face is to be mindful about how often you touch your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth because that’s the easiest way to get infected.

3. Wash Your Hands Often

Your hands spread bacteria, so it’s important that you keep your hands clean. Everything you touch can carry a lot of germs and without realising it, these could get on your face and into your body. To avoid this, health experts suggest that you use soap and wash your hands for at least twenty seconds. Then rinse under water and always dry them off with a clean towel. Hand sanitizers are a good choice too as you won’t have to visit the toilet that often.

4. Focus on Your Overall Health

While you should be careful not to get sick at work, you also need to make sure you prevent yourself from getting sick when you are out of the office. This is perhaps the trickiest part. The best way to keep yourself virus-free day to day is to eat healthy – preferably vegetables and some protein – exercise daily, but without overdoing it and get enough sleep. Usually, six to eight hours of sleep are enough for an average adult.
