Clean your house to avoid catching colds

Catching a cold is never fun. The sneezing, the grogginess, the discomfort. Who's got time for that? WebMD reveals that the common cold is quite strong and can survive quite a while on a variety of surfaces.

From WebMD:
“Rhinoviruses can survive on doorknobs, table tops, shopping cart handles, and other surfaces for 24 hours or more,” Hendley says.
In one ingenious experiment, Hendley and his colleagues had cold sufferers spend the night in a local hotel room and then asked them to identify what they’d touched during their stay; 35% of everything they touched -- including door handles, pens, light switches, TV remote controls, faucets, and telephones -- turned out to be contaminated with a cold virus.

What this means is that you should regularly clean and disinfect your house and office. If you can't afford to take time off of work, or simply don't want to be sick, be sure to sanitize surfaces you touch and consider using hand sanitizer whenever you touch objects from the outside. Avoid touching your face and wash your hands frequently.
