Shock season is coming! I'm talking about static electric shocks, and if they drive you crazy, we have a few tips and tricks to prevent them from happening.

I know, I know, static shocks aren't that big of a deal, but if you work and touch things metal all day, they can get REALLY annoying, really fast. What's wrong with doing a few small things to help prevent them? In this week's "98 Seconds with Naomi Lynn" video, I give you a bunch of tips and tricks I've heard that should help with the amount you get shocked.

First things first, start at home. Because during the winter months we're heating our houses, the air gets dry pretty fast. Make sure you have a humidifier to keep some moisture in the air.

As for at work, especially in an office setting, plants help get moisture in the air. Have a few plants on your desk, and see if your employers are willing to put in a few real plants around the workplace (if you don't have them already).

Also pay attention to the clothes you wear. Best type? Cotton. That will offset the most static electricity, compared to nylon or polyester.

You can get more tips and tricks for preventing static electricity shock in the "98 Seconds" video at the top of this page. I hope these suggestions help during "Shock Season," and good luck out there.
