The holidays are in full swing, which means so is the always-fun cold and flu season. I am sure we all know the basics about preventing a bout with the flu: wash your hands all the time, keep your hands away from your face, eat all your veggies and get plenty of sleep. But, who better to give advice about how to not catch whatever’s going around than those that actually deal with illnesses every day.

According to Shawn Mueller, a Director of Infection Prevention at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, going outside more can actually help you from not getting sick. “One reason we get sick when it’s colder is because we’re sharing more inside air,” he says. In order to prevent any illness, go outside more often, open windows or use an air purifier to kill airborne germs.

Who knew 30-degree weather could have its perks?
