Tip #4: How to Stay Healthy in Hotel Rooms (tips listed below)
We probably all know that hotel rooms are not that clean after all. And without being condescending, judgmental, critical, impolite or rude, hotel room cleaning is probably not the most exciting or high paying occupation, and I suppose the hardworking people laboring away at this chore are at best applying a minimum standard of care. I bet making all of these beds is tough enough. I'm pretty sure not all bedspreads or quilts inside the duvet covers are wash every day.
According to Dr. Philip M. Tierno, a professor of microbiology at the New York University School of Medicine, "common places of travel, such as cabs, airports, airplanes, hotels, restaurants and business meetings, are battlefields in the never-ending war against germs" (Source: news article Seattle times, 08/04/12).
The same article references a study done by a Yale researcher who found that a person entering a room could add about 37 million bacteria to the air every hour. So now that's pretty scary. What do we do to stay healthy? Your best bet is to boost your immune system. You want to do that a few days prior to your travels, and ideally, you work on strengthening your immune system every day of the week so you're ready to fight these germs.
