The past two years, I have been sick every-other month, but then again...I have a two-year old son. He is getting sick less and less the older he gets, and I am actually able to count on being sick-free for 2-3 months in a row. Coincidence?! :-)

The times when I do not have a baby/toddler wiping their nose on me, I can stay relatively illness-free with:

- plenty of rest (7 hours a night or I'm almost guaranteed an illness!!)
- hand washing throughout the day
- flu shot! (they really do work to prevent certain strains of flu, even if to make the symptoms less severe)
- daily vitamin
- drinking lots of water
- getting a little physical activity in my day (15 minute walk, at least)
- I am a big believer in the positive mental attitude, and do notice a huge difference in my energy level and overall feeling of being sick/well, depending n if I'm self-doubting vs. confident and happy
