The best way to protect yourself is to get the flu shot but there are plenty of other things you can do to stay healthy! 

Make sure to be washing your hands as much as possible. Especially before you eat as you don't want any germs to get in your mouth. Avoid touching areas such as your mouth, nose, and eyes. Get enough sleep each night, it is recommended to get 7-8 hours. If you are losing sleep you will get run down which will make you more susceptible to sickness. Try to limit the amount of stress in your life. If you are stacking too many things on top of each other the build up will eventually get to you and but your immune system at risk. Take a break when you are feeling overwhelmed and try to relax. If you know someone is sick, keep your distance. And lastly one of the best things you can do is eat right and exercise.
