Here are a few tips that may keep you from
ending up with a raw throat, throbbing head
and running nose while everyone else is singing
Christmas carols in the snow then drinking
hot chocolate around the Christmas tree.
The chances are your workplace is now an incubator
of germs with victims falling foul of the dreaded 'lergy
It seems that whenever the weather is cold, fresh air
becomes outlawed and people prefer to re-breathe the
same warm germ-soaked air again and again.
Let's take a look at what's happening and what can be done.
1. Mrs A. has picked up a virus a few days ago and starts sneezing.
She has become a germ factory.

who is under tremendous stress at work and they have
financial problems. She comes to work exhausted. She sits
opposite Mrs. A. and inhales viruses all day.
The next day her throat is sore and she has a headache.

Some simple ways to minimize risk are:
1. Try to allow fresh air to circulate from time to time in the
office to "dilute" the germ mist. (A little cold air doesn't
2. Wash hands after shaking hands with someone who has a cold
or using their pencils, rulers, computers etc.
3. Avoid getting sneezed on yourself or on your food and drink
and try to keep away from people coughing.
4. Avoid foods which stimulate mucous formation in your nose
or throat. These could include grains, milk and milk products etc.
Excess mucous forms a medium to trap germs in and increases
the risk of their infecting your mucous membranes and can end
up in nasal, sinus, throat
