Who says you can’t avoid winter colds & flu? Get prepared now and be the smug one without the red nose by following our guide to keeping well at work.


EAT WELL

You know the drill; five a day, loads of water, ease off the booze, healthy snacks. All these things will boost your immune system, making you less likely to get ill.

EXERCISE

It’s so hard in the winter we know, but a brisk walk at lunchtime or a gentle jog in the park helps you feel more energised and helps keep your immune system as good as it can possibly be.

SLEEP

Lack of sleep can make us run down and less likely to stave off a cold so keep your box-set binges under control and set yourself a sensible bedtime.

WASH YOUR HANDS

Get a bit obsessive about washing your hands; clean hands means you are less likely to transfer other people’s germs from the bus stop, photocopier or door handle – yuck.

TOUCH

Don’t touch your face, not ever! It’s the main way in which germs find a way in. Use antibacterial hand gel to add a layer of protection.

SICK DAYS

And finally, if you do get ill, consider a day off sick. You’ll recover quickly and spare your colleagues from catching the dreaded lurgy.

Why not take this opportunity to stock up on the clean desk, clean hands and clean kitchen paraphernalia?  We have you covered with some of the essentials!
