To Cough the Right Way
A sanctimonious child might have already informed you that coughing or sneezing into your hand isn't okay because you'll just spread germs. Cough in the crook of your elbow instead (if you don't have a tissue). As salubrious as this advice is (and ordained by the Centers for Disease Control), it likely goes against decades of habit. Alas, there are no easy tricks for how to elbow-cough naturally. It just takes mindfulness and practice, perhaps reinforced by one of those Sesame Street viral-video sensations.
