Monday Miyagi 102609

This week’s Monday Miyagi comes to us courtesy of Sensei Jason Gould. Enjoy!

As a martial arts and self-defense instructor dedicated to improving the lives of others and helping to keep people safe, I feel a strong obligation to pass along some basic, common-sense information that will help people during flu season. Preventing the Spread of Flu is Self-Defense!

Simple Measures That YOU Can Take To Help Prevent the Spread of Colds and Flu:

  1. Wash your hands often with warm water and soap. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available, and carry a small vial of sanitizer with you.

  2. Get a flu shot for seasonal flu and H1N1, if possible.

  3. If you’re feeling sick, see a doctor.

  4. Remember to cover your coughs and sneezes. (And throw away those used tissues!)

  5. Stay home if you’re sick with a fever: don’t go to work and don’t come to class.

  6. Avoid people who are sick, especially those with flu-like symptoms.

  7. Avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth. This is the easiest way of spreading germs.

  8. Do your part to keep common surfaces (doorknobs, telephones, training equipment, etc.) clean and sanitized.
