A few more tips to keep in mind as the weather gets colder and life gets busier….

Avoid illness!
• Hand washing is definitely one of the best tips to stay germ-free in an office.
• Keep hand sanitizer in your bag or on your desk. This is an easy way to kill germs without having to go to the bathroom.
• Always use tissues or try to sneeze and cough against your forearm or elbow instead.

Stay hydrated!
• With all of the yummy flavored coffee drinks don’t forget to stay hydrated and drink LOTS of water!
• Winter dehydration can cause exhaustion, muscle fatigue, cramps, loss of coordination and even a stroke.
• Drinking water can even give your immune system a boost and prevent you from getting sick during peak cold and flu season!

Don’t forget the fun!
• Remember to enjoy yourself and create new memories this holiday season.
• If you are starting to feel overwhelmed, take a break.
• go outside and take a walk or jog around your neighborhood
• if you are at the office stand up and move around
• Enjoy fun films with family and friends in your home (who doesn’t love a good holiday movie?!)

Moore & Associates wishes you a happy and healthy Holiday!
