  13. Great tips! Staying hydrated on water and not coffee is my biggest thing to remember. Oh and of course sleep!


  14. I’ll be hosting the holidays at my house this year so I make sure to do a thorough cleaning of all the rooms before they arrive to kill any germs in the house. I also open the windows a little to let the cool fresh air in.

  15. These are all great tips! I know my kids happen to get sick at the same time, so hopefully this will cut that down.
