If you bite your nails, stop (that’s how I stopped getting sick all the time). Wash your hands a lot. Try not to overdo the anti bacterial stuff because that could backfire later on. If you share a phone with someone, clean it everyday with something that kills germs. Hm, I can’t think of anymore, I’m sure other bees will! Good luck!

My mom and many others I know swear by taking vitamin D3.  I take a stronger dose when I actually am sick (with a common cold/flu) and it clears it up right away.  It’s only effective for minor things, but could help if you just start feeling under the weather near the wedding.

@Natakie16: I bite my nails all the time!  I wonder if stopping that would help prevent me getting sick.  I get sick 3-4 times a year, and I’m very nervous abuot being sick on or near our wedding.

There have been some pretty thorough studies on Airborne– it doesn’t work to prevent colds… and in fact the company is in the process of refunding money to users because of their reckless claims that Airborne prevented colds.

Natakie hit the nail on the head.  Handwashing is key, and basically the only thing you can do.  But, be mindful of touching your face.  Rubbing your nose or eyes is a great way to give yourself a virus.

Make sure you take lots of vitamin D if you’re not getting any from the sun – I think it helps boost/maintain your immune system’s efficiency. Cold FX can help reduce the severity of your cold when you feel it coming on…

I wash my hands like crazy! Lately, I’ve been downing Emergen-C, too. It tastes great (much better than Airborne) and it seems to work well at boosting my immunity and making me feel better.

Another thing to do is to get a FULL night’s sleep. If your body is stressed it’ll be harder to fight all those germs. My mom swears by extra vitamin C, too.

Good luck — I am worried about being sick, too, or a random bruise or cut or pimple. Aaah!! 🙂

I agree with glitter. Wash your hands as often as possible, and keep your vitamins up. I’m not a fan of the Airborne taste, but Emergen-C isn’t as bad. Also, try to exercise! doing something as simple as going for a walk can help to keep your circulation and endorphins up!
