Well, it happened. I went down sick. I don't get sick very often, but when I do...oh boy. Go big or go home! I also have a 7 year-old. She brings crud home from school. I'm not a germaphobe, but I run around my apartment with a can of Lysol when I know she's got the sniffles.

I have found the four best ways to avoid getting sick:

1. Make friends with fresh air

2. Vitamin C supplements

3. Get plenty of rest.

4. Wash your hands

With spring right around the corner, these easy steps will hopefully help keep you off the couch pushing fluids and antibiotics.
