If you're planning to hop on a plane to get there, one thing you don't want to catch on the plane is the flu.
Airplane cabins have been known to be a perfect incubator for germs that carry everything from the cold to the flu.
But there are ways you can avoid those viruses when you fly.
First, drink lots of water before and during the flight.
Staying well hydrated keeps your mucus membranes moist, making you better equipped to fight germs.
It's also a good idea to skip the alcohol because it can make you dehydrated.
Use a saline nasal spray to protect yourself from the dry air in the cabin. Dry nasal passages make it easier for germs to settle in to your system.
Use disinfectant wipes to clean any surfaces you touch, the tray tables, the seat pocket, and the armrests.
And if you use the toilet, remember to cover the lid before you flush.
Avoid using the plane's blankets or pillows because they can harbor germs as well.
And you might look silly wearing a mask. But if someone sitting near you is coughing and sneezing, it's an effective way to keep the germs from entering your system.
