Hygiene: Assuming you have a normal immune system, you are probably picking up germs that make you sick from people in your daily life. Good hygiene can prevent much of this by avoiding the germs: wash you hands regularly, don't touch your face/nose/eyes, cover mouth when coughing sneezing. Poor sleep and poor diet can also affect immune system and make it all worse. Sleep better and eat healthy.
