If you want to avoid getting sick this winter, there are lots of great tips to stay germ-free, especially at work and school.

Both places are havens for germs, with peers unknowingly passing bacteria back and forth even if they're not outwardly sick.

You can keep the flu and various winter colds at bay simply by staying germ-free – and it really is that easy.

You'll have to make small changes, but they're easy to incorporate into your daily life.

You just have to know what they are, so I'm here to help you learn how to avoid germs in the workplace and the classroom!

1. Wash Your Hands

Hand washing is definitely one of the best tips to stay germ-free in office and classroom settings.

Everyone is always touching everyone else.

In addition to washing your hands after using the bathroom and before eating, you should also keep your hands clean after using communal objects, sneezing, or coughing.

But since you can't always get to the bathroom...

2. Stay Sanitized

Then you need to stay sanitized.

This is by far one of the most popular tips for avoiding germs, judging by the amount of hand sanitizer I see during cold and flu season.2

That's certainly helpful but you may also want to wipe down your phone or desk with a disinfectant, especially if you notice a lot of coughing and sniveling in your office or classroom.

3. Don't Share

You can avoid having to sanitize and disinfect everything by not sharing!

I know, that's rude, but during cold and flu season, it's essential.

Try not to share your phone, your pens, your pencils, your stapler, and items like that.

Most importantly, don't share food or drinks with anyone!

You never know who's sick and some of your peers might not be quite as vigilant about washing their hands.
