MYTH: You'll get sick if you go outdoors in the COLD!

OUTDOORS - Sunset 10 Question:  What is outside that you won't find inside a room (like a gym, office, hospital, living room, mall... etc)?

Answer: PLENTY OF FRESH OXYGEN - and in the daytime you'll get SUNSHINE as a bonus!!!

One myth I found was busted was about going outside and "catching a cold".  It's not true.  In a nutshell, the way you get sick is by a virus getting into your body.  It's a foreign object and if your immune system is strong, you'll beat it up.  That's what the CDC says anyway. (Center for Disease Control).  They also give you tips to prevent.

If your immune system is not strong then you are way more at risk of getting sick.  It's just the way it is and as much as people would like to believe that they are getting sick from any other source is false.

One easy way to keep yourself safe from being hit:  wash your hands and do it for 20 seconds minimum and with warm water and soap.  

When you are sick: STAY HOME FOR GOODNESS SAKE!  You may be the reason everyone in your gym gets sick!!

If you have to sneeze or cough you've GOT TO COVER YOUR FACE/MOUTH.  Carry tissues with you.  Once you sneeze in your hand and you touch that door handle, the handle on the stationary bike, the photo copies, the coffee pot in the break room...you have just put the next people at risk!  You can buy small packs of sanitizing wipes (I had them when I was taking classes at college and using the shared computers).

GROSS OUT!!  (look at your keyboard, is it time to clean it or even better: REPLACE IT?)

You don't have to be prepared like a Doomsday Prepper, but you do need to be smart about where you frequent.  Are the conditions CLEAN?  Do you see someone taking care of that regularly?  

Check the bathroom out at a public location.  It's a good way to judge what the owner of that business holds as a standard. 

Every credible source I checked insisted that people in better health make these points a priority: proper rest, eat nutritious food (that would be actual FOOD that comes from the planet, not made by man), EXERCISE and staying hydrated.

OH and one more thing... chicken soup IS a good thing to have when you are under the weather.

Seems simple enough.
