Here are some ways how to prevent them.
1. Keep Fit – Exercise is one of the most important thing to do so you can keep fit. Because if you do, then you are miles away from disease.
2. Keep your self clean – Most cold and flu viruses can easily spread by direct contact. Someone who has flu may sneeze onto their hand before they touch the telephone, a keyboard, or a kitchen glass.
The germs can live for hours — in some cases weeks — only to be picked up by the next person who touches the same object. So wash your hands often. If no sink is available, rub your hands together very hard for a minute or so. This also helps break up most of the cold germs. You may also rub an alcohol-based hand sanitizer onto your hands.
3. Drink lots of fluids – Water flushes your system, washing out the poisons as it rehydrates you. A typical, healthy adult needs eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids each day.
How can you tell if you’re getting enough liquid? If the color of your urine runs close to clear, you’re getting enough. If it’s deep yellow, you need more fluids.

4. Sleep on time – Give your self always at least 8 hours of sleep.
Sleep is a time for your body to repair damage caused by stress, ultraviolet rays and other harmful exposures. Your cells produce more protein while you are sleeping. These protein molecules form the building blocks for cells, allowing them to repair damage and keeps you away also to common diseases.
5. Get fresh air – A regular dose of fresh air is important, especially in cold weather when central heating dries you out and makes your body more vulnerable to cold and flu viruses. Also, during cold weather more people stay indoors, which means more germs are circulating in crowded, dry rooms.
Bongga ka! if you are Healthy and Fit!
