Are you someone who goes to work even when you are sick with cold or flu? What happens when you do this? Does the work get done to your usual high standard? Probably not, and how many people have you passed on the cold or flu to?
If you stay home on the first day you are feeling unwell and restore yourself to good health by drinking plenty of water, eating nutritious food and resting then you will feel better and are unlikely to spread the cold or flu.
If you go to work and cough and sneeze your way through the day you will have passed on the cold or flu to all the susceptable people you have met during the day. You will not have worked at your usual capacity and productivity and may have even made some mistakes that you would not normally do. When you get home you will be feeling more tired than usual and may not feel like making your nutritious food to eat and instead get something easy or not bother to eat at all. You then are feeling worse and less able to cope with the cold or flu. The next day you wake up feeling no better and force yourself to go off to work. Again coughing and sneezing over all the vulnerable and susceptable people for the second day and by the end of this day you are feeling worse than the day before and less likely to cook a nutritious meal. By about the third or fourth day you are then feeling so crook you decide to stay home and it takes you several days to get better. When you return to work, the work you had done during the days you were there and feeling sick, needs to fixed up. So now you maybe several days behind instead of just one day if you had taken that one day off when you were first feeling sick.
So stay home when sick.
