The Right Way to Sneeze
By Sandra Torres

This is something we all need to learn and practice. I can’t stand when I see someone be so careless, unfortunately there are too many germs floating around. There are many diseases that can be spread from person to person by a sneeze or cough. I definitely don’t want to share your germs or touch what you touched after you sneezed or coughed into your hand.

Take your part in controlling your germs and sickness’. The problem is most people are selfish and as much as they are very critical of others and what they do, they are not considerate of them or don’t think they should abide by the same rules. Take your part, and if everyone played a role we’d all be a little healthier.

I recommend you practice this All the time and be considerate of others.

When you cough or sneeze, never cough or sneeze directly into the air and never ever into your hand(s). To prevent germs, when you cough or sneeze, do it into your elbow. Bring your arm up to your face and cough or sneeze into your elbow bend as oppose to your hand. You’re going to need your hand again. You’re going to have to grab on to something “public” or touch something, or never know when you need to shake someone’s hand.

Use hand sanitizers whenever you can- carry around those little bottles and use it often in public – especially if you’re the type who is always extending a warm handshake out. Have you noticed people today aren’t so receptive to shake hands too much? They would rather give you a pound – which is a fist to fist touch.

Wash your hands often as well, If I have a tendency to itch my face or rub my eye, I definitely don’t want to do it after I touched something that was sneezed on. So I wash my hands often and if I don’t have a bathroom around, I use my hand sanitizer. If I’m out of sanitizer, I tend to use the sleeve of my jacket or shirt to rub my eye if I have to.

The goal is prevention. Be more aware of what’s around you and play your part in spreading less germs. It’s better for all of us.
