I agree and can't wait to hear the feedback. I know I don't wash and sanitize like I should, so I'm starting NOW. I do know that I eat healthier now than I did 6 months ago, including a multi-vitamin and lots of water. I need to increase exercise, too, as studies I've read show that exercise can help strengthen the immune system (mayoclinic.com--look up immune system). I am going to do the handwashing thing more vigorously-20 seconds and take my Lysol into the bathroom at work every time and spray the place down and also in my office--keypad, door knobs, light switches, desk, etc. AFter coughing or sneezing, I am using hand sanitizer and NO touching my nose, eyes or mouth! Two of my staff have had bad colds/bronchitis/sinus junk in the past several weeks and now I do, too. I will also wear a mask, if need be! Our health is worth it!!
