Washing HandsSeasonal colds and flu can hit the hardest during the summer months. The weather is hot, and the last thing you want is to have a fever and feel miserable. There are several things you can do to protect your home from the invasion of germs that make us so uncomfortable. At Hannover Grand at Sandy Springs apartments in Atlanta, Georgia, you can relax in your apartment until you start to feel better.

Self-Care

If you're trying to avoid the dreaded seasonal colds and flu, you need to take care of yourself. Getting at least eight hours of sleep each night and eating a healthy diet should always be at the top of your list of priorities. It's also important that you exercise on a regular basis. Exercise keeps your blood pumping and your heart healthy. Practice a few deep-breathing exercises as well to keep your lungs in top shape. 

Disinfect Your Home

Take a few minutes every day to wipe down faucets, doorknobs, and surfaces in your home. Your kitchen and bathroom, especially, are breeding grounds for bacteria and viruses. They are also used by everyone in your home several times a day. Wash dishes thoroughly using hot water and dish soap, or run them through the dishwasher to make sure they are thoroughly clean.

Protect Yourself at Work

You are the most vulnerable to germs while you're at work or school. Multiple people are touching surfaces and doorknobs on a regular basis. Wash your hands as much as possible and carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer with you and use it occasionally throughout the day. It may not eliminate all the germs, but it will help keep them to a minimum.
