Tuesday we found out that one thing you can do to prevent yourself from catching the Flu (and other nasty diseases) is to stop touching your face so much!

The average person touches their face three times an hour and since you're not washing your hands three times an hour, you may be infecting yourself with the germs on your hands without even realizing it. 

As the video below shows, Meg touches HER face way more than the "average person."  If you stop to think about it, you touch your face more often than you realize.  In fact just touched my face while I was typing that.  ~Murphy 

Also, a London doctor has a theory on why you seem to be stuck with a PERMENANT COLD this winter.  You're possibly making yourself sicker because of the way you're blowing your nose.  Yes, you can blow your nose wrong! 

The doc claims that when you blow BOTH nostrils into a tissue as hard as you can, you can shoot some of your mucus into your sinuses.  And that can lead to a sinus infection.  The CORRECT way to blow your nose is to gently blow each nostril individually.  He also says that neti pots don't really work . . . but using a decongestant spray actually can make you feel better.  Decongestant sprays work about four to five times more effectively than decongestant tablets.
