Sickness and Sleep

So we know that lack of sleep can make one susceptible to colds.  Here is an article from last year that talks about this.  It is no wonder I am sick again!

How do moms stay healthy?  Kids bring home germs all the time from nurseries etc and moms get much less than the recommended 7-8 hrs of uninterrupted sleep!  I'm also exposed to sick people all the time at work so it is amazing that I have sick free days at all!

There are a ton of articles online about how to avoid colds etc.  Seems the consensus for the most part include these:

-  wash hands often (avoid touching your nose, eyes, mouth...)
-  get lots of sleep
-  exercise regularly
-  eat right
-  avoid sick people

Alright... got to catch some zzz's...
