EVERYDAY: 3 TIPS FOR STAYING HEALTHY DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON
Raise your hand if you made a New Year’s resolution to take better care of yourself *raises hand*. We spent the better part of 2018 knee deep in all things newborn and then all of a sudden it was winter (aka cold and flu season). While the holidays were wonderfully full of sweets and lazy mornings, it’s time to hit the reset button.
Exercise and nutrition are a big part of my self care program but I’m also making my wellness a priority and being proactive during this cough, cold & flu season (especially with a preschooler who brings home ALL.THE.GERMS.). Here are three ways I’m implementing a relief routine:
Be Prepared. I stock up on all the essentials should any symptoms arise so I can hit it hard from the get-go. A few of the things I like to have on hand include products like Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold & Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment. With Robitussin Honey you can fight your cough and help kick your symptoms to the curb with the real honey you want, the powerful cough relief you need. Gluten Free. No Artificial Colors. True Source Certified Honey. The liquid-strength of Robitussin® soothes on contact and provides cough relief for hours. If a cold sore happens to arise having Abreva on hand is great because it is not for temporary symptom relief, but healing. Easy to apply, it delivers the best results when used at the first sign of a cold sore (e.g. the tingle that you feel on your lip). And Theraflu is a staple in our medicine cabinet. Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold fit right into my routine. Compatible with most single-serve coffee makers, these fast-relieving pods work on even your most severe symptoms. It’s powerful relief without a prescription. Remember, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM should not be used at the same time.
2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Drinking tons of water and fluids like tea is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body. I am loving Lipton Bedtime Bliss tea...it’s an herbal infusion that sings you to sleep, like a lullaby in a cup.* And because it’s made with carefully selected botanicals and blended with essential oils, I can make wellbeing a part of my everyday routine.
3. Be Proactive. I like to implement products into my daily routine that will help support my healthy habits and keep me being the best mama I can be. I have used Emergen-C Immune+® Super Orange Gummies for a while now because they naturally support your immune system with the key nutrients your body needs, such as Vitamin D and Zinc. Even more, every
Emergen-C Immune+® formula is packed with Vitamin C.*
I pick up all of my items at Kroger since it is the perfect destination for all of my flu needs.
