In brief: Handwashing

Most infections (80-85%) are passed through hand-to-hand contact.
Washing your hand frequently in warm soapy water will significantly reduce your chances of an infection. Other things to do include not sharing utensils, cups, toothpaste, hand towels, etc. Having those who are ill to cover his mouth when ever sneezing or coughing will help.
