- Push the liquids, can't emphasize this enough, whether sick or not, being well hydrated helps the immune system do its job, to the point of going to the bathroom every half hour.- speaking of the bath rooms... if you can aquire paper towels without touching the dispenser, then use paper towels to avoid direct contact with the water facets and/or bathroom door handles. Be one of those germophopic freaks who avoids direct skin contact with public surfaces... trust me.- cough/sneeze into the crux of your elbow instead of your hand. This may be more to the benefit of those around you rather than yourself, but the more who practice this simple habit, the better.- avoid shaking hands. Be friendly and courteous but avoid skin to skin contact.- If your hotel has a gym, use it! The body generates a fever when its sick to raise its core temperature in an effort to kill off foreign invaders, raising your core temperature through exercise on a routine basis is a good thing. *check with your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen.- have fun! Multiple, independent studies suggest that laughter boosts the human immune system :)
