2. I consistently eat a nutritious diet Consuming a high amount of fruits and vegetables is important, since these foods are generally rich in vitamins C and E, and green vegetables contain B6. These three nutrients contribute to healthy immune system function.

3. I practice good hygiene Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face—especially after visiting a public place.
