  1. Five food groups that are  extremely bad for you include soda, processed foods, refined carbohydrates, foods and drinks high in sugar, and alcoholic beverages.
  2. Exercise regularly; taking 20 to 30 minutes out of your day to do even a walk around the house without stopping helps.
  3. Get enough sleep. The average adult needs a good seven to nine hours of sleep a night.
  4. Practice good hygiene. You should always wash your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer to ensure proper cleaning.
  5. Get vaccinated. Get your updated flu shots to prevent any further sickness.
