Common sense is the first, most significant tool for staying healthy if those around you might be coughing and sneezing! Use plain soap and water as antibacterial soaps create resistant bugs.

Stress is part of everyday life – when it becomes overwhelming and continuous, it breaks down your system which makes it less able to fight off invaders. There are various methods you can use – meditation and prayer are one of the very best and I suggest that you practice them every day.
