Cooler weather might not actually cause the common cold, but we all know that fall and winter are the seasons of sickness. Catching something is as easy as being near a coughing stranger on the subway or sitting near a sick coworker. You’re fine one minute, then you wake up with a sore throat and know what’s about to happen.

But new research from the academic journal, "Sleep," suggests a simple way to keep yourself from coming down with a common cold. And it’s something you already do, just probably not enough. What you need to stay healthy is sleep.

Research shows that people who only get five or six hours of shut eye a night are four times more likely to catch a cold that those who snooze for seven hours or more. Your body needs that much time to rest to boost your immunity and fight off those viruses.

Since you probably wish you got more sleep than you do now, keep this all in mind as your germy colleagues and strangers in elevators cough and sneeze near you. You can’t avoid them, but you can get into bed earlier and get the rest you need to fight it off. It’s free, it’s easy, and there really are no downsides!
