The dreaded cold and flu season is upon us, so now is the time to talk about how to avoid them and stay healthy. For those partaking in online homeschooling, it is more likely for you to be able to avoid the sickness that seems to spread like wildfire in the school system. But we all know that these sicknesses seem to spread amongst people who are closely in contact, and it wouldn’t do any good for the teachers (parents) to get sick at the same time as their students (children).
Here are some tips to avoid colds and the flu this season.
Tips for Homeschoolers
For one, don’t forget to wash your hands and make sure your kids do the same. This is the best way to avoid illness. Also, disinfect surfaces that are touched repeatedly. Another tip that helps wonderfully for avoiding illness is doing regular exercise. This could mean different things to different people: a brisk walk every day or a short jog is enough to keep the immune system up. Make sure your children are outside a lot and exercise as well. Research herbal remedies: Echinacea works wonders for warding off illness, as well as other herbs like Goldenseal.

Following these tips could potentially ward off illness for you and your family for a long time. Each of these, taken together, will go a long way in avoidance of the common pitfalls that contribute to illness for families and children.
