Everyone’s least favorite season is in full swing … yes, it’s flu season. The flu can be miserable and leave you missing important events like work and social gatherings. But fear not, there are steps you can take to prevent contracting the flu:
• Eat foods that boost your immune system. Blueberries, spinach, kiwi and dark chocolate all contain antioxidants that can boost your immune system.
• Disinfect your phone screen. In a study, the University of Arizona found that cell phones have more bacteria than a toilet seat.
• Finally, the best way to avoid the flu is to get your flu shot.
