Hand washing.  How many times have we heard effective hand washing is the first line of defense against so many things that can harm us.  Check out this video shared from the BBC with Dr Adele McCormick from the University of Westminster and a very visual demonstration with a blacklight on how a quick splash of water is not not really washing your hands.  So, wash your hands often.  Here is another little tip from me...pay attention to all the surfaces you touch every hour. How many others have touched too!  How many times an hour do you touch your hands to your face in some way.  That is how it all gets shared.  Those areas you are touching...wash after and keep clean those spots a little bit more often.
