Be prepared! Flu prevention by MRL Trinidad

Scene: It’s a typical Monday morning and you’re finally settling down at your desk with that much needed cup of coffee to chase away those Monday blues. All is quiet until…


You turn slowly to the left only to realize that Tricia, the girl in the next cubicle is tossing tissue after tissue in the bin. Your blood runs cold as you realize she’s reached over for a stapler, the one you loaned her last week, with her unwashed hands! Uggghhh!

Okay, so that’s enough drama… for now, but seriously, how many of us have had those looks of dread directed at us at the mere hint of a flu? How do we avoid getting sick?

People, the sad truth is you can’t. *Insert crying emoji here*. It may not be today, but everyone falls ill from time to time. However we’re sure you’ve heard, “prevention is better than cure.”

Here are some ways to reduce the risks of falling ill.

  1. Drink lots of water. Don’t underestimate this God given gift. It hydrates, and flushes out the body helping to remove toxins.
  2. Fruits are friends and Veggies aren’t villains. Eat more of these to boost your immune system.
  3. Be sanitary. Keep wipes and disinfectant handy. Wash hands and keep surface areas clean to reduce the spread of germs.
  4. Beware the Mosquito! Eliminate breeding places around the workplace and BOP those critters. *Disclaimer – We do not endorse any particular brand of insect repellent.*
  5. Make more room for rest. A good night’s sleep goes a long way in building up resistance.
