Flu Got You Down?

Influenza is hitting the United States harder this year than in some past years. If you or a family member have it, here are five simple things you should do:

  1. Stay home to encourage healing and protect others from exposure.
  2. Rest as much as possible.
  3. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water.
  4. Eat sparingly and lightly: include broths, soup, toast, fruit, etc.
  5. Use a humidifier to ease stuffy noses and relieve coughs.

PositiveTip: To prevent a relapse, resist the urge to go back to work too quickly.
