Wash your hands carefully and frequently.

The top solution protecting you from the flu is washing your hands carefully and frequently with some soap and clean water. You should rub your palms hard, fingers and backs of hands in at least 20 seconds. If there is not a restroom, wash your hands quickly with 60% alcohol.

2.   Humidify the air

Humid air can do harm to flu viruses. Scientists don’t figure out the reason why but there is a fact that the particles containing viruses float more easily in dry air, which helps the viruses to live longer. In humid environment, these particles become heavier and fall down to the ground. Therefore, invest in an air-humidifying machine and maintain 40-60% humidity.   

3.   Avoid drinking too much wine

Wine may weaken the function of leukocytes against the invasion of viruses within 24 hours after you are drunk. Therefore, you should cut down on drinking when you catch the flu.  

4.   Sleep more

People who sleep fewer than 7 hours per night stand 3 times higher chance than people sleeping more than 8 hours. When you don’t sleep, your body releases a lot of cytokines – a protein which stimulate flu symptoms when you catch it.
