Control the spread of germs Cold and flu season is in full swing and all around you has begun to sound like a symphony of sniffles and coughs. Moms don't get sick days, so it is up to you to control the spread of germs and keep yourself healthy and ready for the season ahead. Wash your hands consistently and correctly as the first defense against a sickness that could take you down. Be sure to use warm water and lather up with soap for at least 20 seconds. When using a public restroom, use the towel you grabbed to dry your hands to turn sink handles and doorknobs. Carry travel tissues wherever you go to stop sneezes in their tracks. Make sure to cover your sneezes and teach little ones this practice as well. If you do come down with a cold or the flu this season, make sure to give yourself the time to get better. Stay home from work and settle in for a long winter's nap. Hydration and healthy foods are a huge part of fueling yourself back to full potential so make sure you are giving your body what it needs. Settle in with a good book This month curl up with a new book and a nice warm cup of coffee. Local readers will meet at 2 Alices Coffee Lounge in Newburgh as part of the Books & Brews Book Discussion Group.
