3. Sneezing and coughing wrong
Let’s be clear: It’s fine to sneeze and cough, and a normal part of life. But sneezing or coughing into your hands sets you up for passing viruses on to others. Kids in school are now taught to use the crook of their elbow. It’s not quite caught on among the adult set, but it really works to help contain the cold virus and keep hands a bit cleaner as they touch surfaces, others, food and more. Extra tip: avoid touching your face too frequently, as that’s an effective way to get a virus from your hands into your body via proximity to your mouth and nose.
