  • Oh what you squeeze it isn't feeling

  • very well today

  • everybody gets sick even robot rats and

  • getting the cold or flu can be sort of

  • scary but sometimes the more you know

  • about something the less scary it is so

  • sweet and I decided to take a look back

  • at everything we've learned about how we

  • get sick and what we can do to feel

  • better

  • first why did it in the first place and

  • what is your body do to help you feel

  • better when they get cold outside it's

  • time to bundle up and take good care of

  • yourself because cool weather time it's

  • cold and flu season you heard of cold

  • everyone gets them that's when you get

  • me and copy and maybe you're running a

  • temperature and flow is just another

  • kind of cold and it's really no fun in a

  • CPL 1804 and hot and all-around

  • miserable but have you ever wondered

  • what causes a cold and the flu

  • what they're both caused by something

  • called a virus viruses are very small

  • too small to see you met with most

  • microscopes they can make a big

  • difference in your body though because

  • they can make you sick

  • yes weeks since viruses can make a sick

  • we sometimes call them germs but not all

  • germs are viruses but the ones that can

  • cause the flu and cold definitely are

  • now in order to make you sick

  • the flu virus have to get into your body

  • first it usually gets in through our

  • nose or mouth or our eyes and once we

  • give him the virus starts to make copies

  • of itself until there are locks every

  • one of them in there but don't worry

  • your body has ways to fight back it

  • might seem kind of weird but sometimes

  • if the things that your body doesn't

  • fight the virus and other germs that

  • makes you feel kind of yucky

  • take for example mucus that's the sticky

  • running stuff that comes out of your

  • nose your body makes mucus to trap the

  • flu virus and other germs that are in

  • your nose and mouth when you get run

  • down your nose

  • it carries the flu virus with it along

  • with other stuff your body have used to

  • knock them out gross maybe but it works

  • when you get run down the back your

  • throat after awhile it can make it hurt

  • to that

  • don't you sometimes get a sore throat

  • when you're sick but washing out the

  • virus even the only thing your body can

  • do to fight the flu can you think of

  • another thing that most of us do when

  • we're not feeling very well you're right

  • weeks we need when you sneeze air comes

  • out of your mouth and throat really

  • quickly as the air boom by it picks up

  • some of the virus pieces and carries

  • them outside of your body so sleeping is

  • your body's way of sending viruses and

  • other germs on their way now if you've

  • ever had the flu

  • you probably know what a fever is a

  • fever is another way that our bodies try

  • to get rid of the virus when germs are

  • inside your body you can make itself

  • hotter than normal and guess what

  • viruses hate that because want to give

  • too hot it's harder for the viruses to

  • make copies of themselves and that helps

  • your body get rid of germs more easily

  • so your body has lots of cool ways to

  • defend itself but what else can you do

  • to make yourself feel better when you

  • get sick

  • well I'm giving lots of rest is one of

  • the best things you can do when you're

  • not feeling well when you rescue scene

  • energy and your body can use that energy

  • to get rid of the virus

  • another thing you can do is drink a lot

  • healthy things like water from juices

  • and even soup will give your body the

  • things that needs to help you get

  • feeling better soon

  • of course the best thing to do is to not

  • get sick in the first place and to help

  • with that the number one thing to do is

  • wash your hands

  • it's especially important to wash your

  • hands when you get home from school or

  • the store and remember how we said that

  • can be hard to remember sometimes and

  • you can also keep them from spreading to

  • other people by covering up your costume

  • these things quad up the inside of your

  • nose causing it to get irritated which
