Six ways to avoid a coldPosted on Jan 23rd 2007 9:46AM by Jonathon Morgan
Argh! It's that time of year when every time I turn around I'm infected with something. Today my throat itches, yesterday my nose was running -- with a 2 1/2-year-old in the house, we're never short on cold-causing germs. If everyone's sick in your house, check out these tips to help you avoid catching more colds this winter.
-Make all calls on your cell to avoid getting germs from other phones.
-Carry your own pen everywhere. Borrowing others' is a prime way to pass germs.
-Sneeze into your elbow if you're caught without a tissue (and teach kids to do the same). It keeps germs off your hands.
