When my first student entered the studio on Saturday morning with a thick, green runny nose, I knew that was it—I was going to get it. I glanced at my attendance sheet. A few sick kids already marked absent for that class, an ear infection last week...and the list of related seasonal ailments could go on. While I'm a bit surprised I lasted cold-free as long as I did, I'm extremely thankful it's only a mild case of the sniffles.
In hindsight, I probably could have done more to prevent this cold. Yes, I wash my hands constantly and, no, I don't share drinks or towels; however, I have been slacking on my fruits and veggies. And busy weeknights and weekends haven't been helping my sleep schedule.
These things seem like no-brainers when it comes to telling our students, but they're all too easy to forget ourselves. For 10 tips to stay healthy through the rest of the year, CLICK HERE.
